They're lying, just as they've lied about their kidnapping of President Aristide.

It's immoral to deport anyone given such horrendous conditions, and it's getting worse, not better.

This decision will not only have a direct and immediate impact on tens of thousands of people here, but will influence the fate of hundreds of thousands of Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans and others throughout the United States.

The wet-foot, dry-foot policy has no foundation in law.

There was never any evidence and there remains no evidence of it [Aristide's involvement].

This is a highly unusual situation. It seems the judge and the board disagree.

He's responsible for [Miami] having a Haitian community. It was through his leadership and his creation of the Haitian Refugee Center and working with us on the legal work and organizing people politically that [he] stopped the deportations. It was the initiation and the creation of the Haitian community here.

They do not want him out [of jail] because he could potentially register as a candidate for president and easily win if he has the support of Aristide.
