    Seems to be some mix up in the article between 'economic migrants' and 'refugees'.
    Brasil seems to know which they are. Visas awarded at the rate of 100 per month, even had it happened since the 2010 earthquake, would have still added just 4800 immigrants. Apparently, there are 4000.

    It would have been useful if Mercopress had given some idea of the total size of the problem and its split between refugees and economic migrants, between legal and illegal entrants.
    It's worthy of a better article.

    Since we want to Argentines, because not encourage immigration from Haiti in the islands? Because if it continues, the negative natural growth rate in the islands, which soon disappear so proudly say they have 9 generations.
