"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?

There is nothing wrong with using one's financial resources to assure one's well-being.

Being born in the USA and not denying the Haitianness within, is a blessing and the best of both worlds.

With all due respect, doctor Boulos has been involved in the haitian so-called health care system for over three decades, has always been a favorite of Haitian governments, why couldn't he being a technocrat and health care expert put together a comprehensive plan for building an upscale-world-class-state of the art hospital in Haiti?

That would be no problem for a man of his stature, meaning money wise. He wouldn't pursue such venture because he has never looked at the poor Caribbean nation as his home country, but as a hub for quick cash.
It's unfortunate, if not sad, if he has a heart attack, by the time to embark an airplane to Florida, it would be way too late. I am a fiend of capitalism.

I understand but he needs to know that the culture is also important because a kid who was borned and raised outside of Haiti wont really know the haitian culture 100%.

They can find a way to integrate them but first they should make sure that they have a stable life in Haiti.

If you dont know the culture and the needs of the haitians dealing with them wont be

He is right, being born on foreign soil doesn't make you less Haitian than those born in Haiti.

Its a matter of technicality.

If you become a citizen of a foreign country and reject your Haitian nationality, then that's a different
