I am specifically speaking about how Cuban immigrants get preferential treatment over the Haitian immigrants. It is understandable that America has its hands full with the immigration crisis, but one immigrant should not be treated as if they were more important than another. In Miami Dade County there is an estimated residential population of 2,583,297. Of that there are estimated 1,457,501 people; 61.04 percent of that consists of Cubans living in Miami Dade County. (America Fact Finder.gov census) Black or Black-Americans make up 18.1 percent, with 430, 497 representatives.
In 2003 there was hope for Haitian refugees; Attorney General John Ashcroft revealed that Haitians who make it to American soil and apply for asylum will be held on grounds of national security until their asylum cases are settled. Though this policy was originally intended for Cubans it has become a policy for all refugees entering the United States. Immigrant advocates also pointed out how Haitians were treated after the 2008 hurricanes struck as evidence of United States based discrimination. That year many hurricanes had occur in Haiti,
Influences on the Robin Johns In Randy Sparks’ novel, The Two Princes of Calabar, the Robin Johns, who are the main characters, are commonly characterized as creoles. Being a creole means that you are a product of various cultures, and in the Robin Johns case, they fit the description. Due to their involvement in the Atlantic slave trade, the Robin Johns were products of the Americas, Africa, and Europe. In the novel, Randy Sparks references a well-known historian by the name of Ira Berlin. Ira is speaking of the Robin Johns when she states that, “ ‘by there experiences and sometimes by their persons, they had become part of the three worlds that came together along the Atlantic littoral’ ” (Sparks 4).

The account of African people in America starts with, and still conveys the legacy of, one of the most inhumane oppressions throughout US history, the establishment of slavery. African people were brought to America initially in 1619 (A History Of Slavery: 1619-1865. (n.d.)). At that time, slavery had not yet formed; the first Africans who were in America through the 1680s are believed to have been indentured servants. The earliest Africans were seen in the same light as indentured servants from Europe.
Communist government engaged in a revengeful policy that seized private property and chased people out of their homes, imprisoned former South Vietnamese soldiers and officials in "re-education" camps. As a result, approximately two million Vietnamese fled Vietnam on small and overcrowded boat. This group of refugees is known as “boat people”. The third wave of Vietnamese immigrants began during 1990s mainly through family reunification. Within short time, Vietnamese Americans are becoming one American ethnic group among many.
He probably thought now would be the best time to get back into Haiti, because of earthquake recovery, a cholera epidemic, and a presidential election crisis. If it were me, I would guess the government couldn’t afford the political instability of arresting, charging, and prosecuting him as well. On Tuesday the 18th, a judge and a prosecutor, took Duvalier into custody and took him to a courthouse in downtown Port-au-Prince. Hours later, Duvalier was charged with his alleged crimes which include, theft and misappropriation of hundreds of millions of dollars, which he and his first wife took with them to France 25 years ago. The 2010 earthquake took more than 250,000 lives, so the government can hardly handle what is already on their plate.
The pirates enslaved and killed the crews. They threw them in to prisons in Algiers, along with other sailors who had been there for decades. Once Americans found out about the hostages they began to think of ways to solve the problem. Ransoms could not be paid and America’s armed forces were not strong enough. Eventually America’s navy attacked them but failed the first time.
The ill-fated colony was almost immediately disrupted by a fight over leadership, during which the slaves revolted and fled the colony to seek refuge among local Native Americans. De Ayllón and many of the colonists died shortly afterwards of an epidemic and the colony was abandoned, leaving the escaped slaves behind on North American soil. In 1565, the colony of Saint Augustine in Florida, founded by Pedro Menendez de Aviles, became the first permanent European settlement in North America. It included an unknown number of free and enslaved Africans that were part of this colonial expedition. The first recorded Africans in British North America (including most of the future United States) arrived in 1619 in Jamestown, Virginia.
After selling their lies and plans for the war to the America people, congress had given President Bush carte blanche to bring justice to those who caused pain and destruction on American soil. Abu Ghraib Prison, also known as Baghdad Central Prison, became the U.S Army detention center for captured Iraqis. “For decades under Saddam Hussein, many prisoners who were taken to the Abu Ghraib prison never came out. It was the centerpiece of Saddam's empire of fear, and those prisoners who did make it out told nightmarish tales of torture beyond imagining – and executions without reason.” (Abuse of Iraqi POWS by GIs Probed, 2004) In 2004 rumors began to surface, regarding the abuse of prisoners held by the U.S army. Initially the U.S media expressed little interest to the accusations, until photographic evidence emerged, exposing the violation of the prisoner’s human rights.
