Already, about 500 people who have returned to Haiti in 3 flights labeled "Humanitarian flights". These Haitians have signed a declaration saying they will not return to Chile for nine years.

Life is tough for these Haitians in Chile who spent a fortune to go to what they believed would be a promise land. They decided to return home. But what opportunities are waiting for them at home?

Surprisingly, 1600 Haitians in Chile have singed up for this free flight back home. Many of them are living in terrible conditions in Chile and cannot find a job. They prefer to start over in their home country.

What do you think about that?
