Enough of Haiti, that cannot even govern itself. Give it to the demanding Arabs, in search of a land to dominate. Spineless voo doo and demonic Islam can surely work out a joint existance.

Haitian parasite of Los Angeles, you should be out assisting to cleanup in the South Bay, after the storms, simply to prove your sincerity of Anerican citzenship. But No. You whine to bring the Haitins to America.

Russian doctors treat over 100 Haitians in mobile hospital


Russian doctors in Haiti treated more than 100 earthquake survivors over the weekend, and Emergency Situations Ministry representative said on Monday in Moscow.

The emergency clinic was flown into the quake-stricken country on one of the first Russian aid planes, but initially had difficulty finding a secure area to set up, as most open public spaces had been taken over by people who had lost their homes..

"In the airmobile hospital of the rescue center team, deployed in the Port-au-Prince Police Academy, Russian doctors over the past day helped 60 victims," a spokesperson said, adding that 16 were children.

The injuries were of varying severity and 16 required surgery. Five patients remained in the hospital for further treatment, while another 80 people received counseling from emergencies ministry psychologists.

On Saturday, the doctors treated 59 patients, including seven children and 23 surgical cases.

The January 12 earthquake devastated the impoverished Caribbean nation, with estimates of the number of dead ranging up to 200,000. Three million people may have been affected and countries around the world are sending aid.

Planes from Russia`s Emergency Situations Ministry are ferrying aid in from third countries.

"Two Il-76 transport planes arrived in Caracas, where they took on board 80 tons of food, then flew to Haiti`s capital, Port-au-Prince," the ministry spokesman said on Monday.

He added that similar requests had been received from Britain, Peru, Sweden, Panama, Cuba and CIS countries.

Wait...the USA will be taking in Costa Ricans since their earthquake this morning.

This has got to STOP!

Americans do not have jobs. Americans are scrambling to keep their families afloat and now the USA has to support haitians, Costan Ricans?

Let the United Nations take care of this matter.

Obama will soon seek immigration Reform....and with that MORE will be coming to the USA to compete with American citizens and to suckle on the teat of the american taxpayer by looking for ongoing handouts.

A cornerstone of Obama's Immigration Reform is FAMILY REUNIFICATION...that means for every 20-30 MILLION illegals already in the USA (by failure to enforce the immigration LAWS) more of their relatives will be able to come here.

Obama, McCain support reform. Vote them OUT!

We need to get our country back in shape before more are allowed to enter.

Stop rewarding those who break the law, reward those who follow our laws. Those are the immigrants WE want.
