How Haitian Migrants got to the Texas

Most don’t; that is why countless thousands of Haitians have drowned trying to reach Florida on overcrowded fishing boats, and why dozens, if not hundreds, are dying in South and Central American at this very moment. Also, not all Haitians living abroad are in better socioeconomic circumstances than they would have been in Haiti… sometimes political exile simply ends up lasting a little too long to make return feasible. But there is also some evidence that many rural Haitians who relocated to DR are actually worse off than if they had remained home as subsistence farmers.
Are you in the States? Does the comment about political exile lasting too long to make return feasible apply to you?
