Post-Hurricane Tension Between Bahamians And Haitian Refugees Should Be Reduced Through Mutual Understanding

Since Hurricane Dorian hit the Afro American tourist paradise known as the Bahamas, there has been tension between Bahamians and Haitian refugees there. There have been serious complaints here and there. Serious complaints…

But I appeal to both sides to excercise restraint. Both sides must be sensitive to the feelings of each other. Law, order, brotherly sacrifice and generosity must be maintained.

…Beyond human rights, there are practical reasons for Bahamas to take care of migrant workers: Its economy depends on them. Haitian agricultural laborers, carpenters and construction workers provide precisely the labor necessary to rebuild the country after Dorian.

Haitian migrant workers need the Bahamas. But the Bahamas needs Haitians, too.
