More than 15,000 Haitian asylum seekers and migrants recently made the news after trying to enter the United States.  Images from Del Rio, Texas began to surface of border patrol agents riding horses and using whips on Haitian migrants. Many were polarized however this type of treatment is nothing new for the United States and how it treats Haitians. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, between 2018-2021 only 4.62% of Haitian asylum seekers were granted asylum by the U.S. The lowest rate among 84 groups during the study.

Tune in as I share additional infomation and history on the relationship between the United States and Haiti.

The second hour features music from Machel Montano, Kes, Kerwin Dubois, Olatunji, Beenie Man, Mr.Vegas, Konshens, Aidonia, Patrice Roberts, and more!
