US to Deport 700 Haitians

It recently sent home more than two dozen Haitian men who say they have been struggling to rebuild their lives in the quake-hit nation.

 

The men were part of the first wave of forced removals since the earthquake last year that destroyed much of Port-au-Prince.

 

 

One of the deportees, Serge Michel Dorval, says he is having a hard time adjusting to his new surroundings, living in a tent in the middle of one of the largest refugee camps.

 

 

The 25-year-old, who left Haiti as an infant, says he served two years in a US jail on cocaine possession charges before being released.

 

 

He says he was picked up by immigration officials last month and put on a plane to Port-au-Prince.
