The way the New York Times spins the headline ("Bush Remark Gives Advocates Hope for Release of Haitians") you might almost imagine that our quasi-elected president was thinking of letting Haitian refugees stay in the country. No need to twist your head around that one. Although there is a possibility that Bush might rethink his decision last year to keep all Haitian refugees locked up for months and months and months and months while awaiting their hearings (as opposed to migrants from EVERY OTHER COUNTRY), that doesn't mean he's going to let them stay:
Mr. Bush made the remarks at a news conference on Thursday. He said Haitians should be treated the same as all migrants, except Cubans. "And the difference, of course," he said. "is that we don't send people back to Cuba because they're going to be persecuted."
As my boyfriend put it when he read that "But it's OK to send Haitians back to death by slow starvation?"
