On February 1, 2003, a group of 20 Haitians Students from the Florida Haitian Student Association (FHSA) - most of whom are included in this picture - had a unique opportunity to visit our Haitian detainees at the Broward Work Release Center.

"It was very sad and emotional for me to see my people locked up, knowing all they wanted was freedom. Instead they found sadness, pain, insecurity, and humiliation."

Cell Phone Photo - Here is a photo of Dominican immigration officials chasing down Haitians in Santo Domingo.

This photo was taken in Santo Domingo Este MOnday, May 27, 2013, as a Dominican immigration bus stopped in front of a colmado and officials started running after anyone who is BLACK.

Haiti Identification Card - Carte d'Identite

Haiti Identification Card - Carte d'Identite

Here is the Haitian Identification card, called a Carte d'Identite Nationale.

This is the ID card of my grand mother Adrienne Joseph

Every Haitian has a NIF... What is a NIF?

NIF in Haiti means:
- numéro d'immatriculation fiscale
- numéro d'identité fiscale
- numéro d'identification fiscale

It all means the same thing. Here is where it comes from:

The Haitian fiscal identity card was created in 1987 by the Haiti Tax Branch (Direction générale des impôts or DGI), which assigned a fiscal registration number (numéro d'immatriculation fiscale or NIF) to all Haitian citizens and foreigners required to pay tax in Haiti.

The NIF on the fiscal identity card is made up of 10 digits.

What about the Haiti national identification card?

The Haiti national identification card (carte d'identification nationale) was supposed to replace the fiscal identity card. This card was created on 7 July 2005 for the 2006 elections. This card was also supposed to replace the Haiti elector's card, which was issued for the last time for the 2000 elections by the Haitian Provisional Electoral Council (Conseil électoral provisoire d'Haiti)
