"In the first days of each month, the first applicants and racketeers make the line at 3 o'clock in the morning or spend the night in front of the consulate. These racketeers get the coupons for free and sell them for USD $50 each,"says a source familiar with the issue to Haitian newspaper Le Nouvelliste.
