How Technology is Keeping Haitian Migrants Connected Worldwide

A recent wave of Haitian migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border was triggered by a chain of Facebook and WhatsApp messages (an app co-developed by Ukrainian immigrant Jan Koum).

As of this writing, we have no plans of bringing it back. There simply isn’t enough support for such a large-scale event in New York.

Haitian Leaders Should Remain Vigilant

Many in the community were misguided into thinking that Trump would provide solutions to their problems, or ignored the pending doom he would inflict, as though the Haitian community would be immune to his catastrophic influence. Instead, efforts were made at the 11th hour to help stave off a fate that had already been sealed the day Trump took his oath of office.
