Haiti Elections - Reginald Boulos: If I was NOT Born in the USA, my Mother and I would be DEAD...


Haiti Elections Update - Haitian Candidate for Senator Reginald Boulos who was recently kicked out of the Legislative elections considers himself a victim of political EXCLUSION... Boulos, who affirmed he is 100% Haitian, explained on Radio Caraibes Saturday that his mother had to go to the United States on a visa to give birth to him due to pregnancy complications...

"Had I not been born in the United States," Boulos said, "Me and my mother would be dead and, being the first born child from a complicated pregnancy, my other 5 siblings would not have be born."

Boulos raises a BIG question of IDENTITY for all the Haitian mothers who are giving birth to children in Santiago, Dominican Republic, where 50 out of every 100 children born is of a Haitian mother, he said...

"They have no identity... This is a violation of Human rights," he said...

QUESTION: What happens when a Haitian mother has the financial ability to go to another country where there is a better health care system to give birth to a their Haitian child?

What do you think about that?
