Rules on Deporting Haitians to Be Eased

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

President Clinton is expected to sign an order lifting strict deportation rules covering thousands of Haitians who fled the military regime that was later ousted by an American-led peacekeeping force. A senior administration official said 15,000 to 20,000 Haitians would be covered by the president’s action. The new law requires an immigrant to have lived in the United States for 10 years and to show good moral character.
