Caribbean Life News NY – August 9, 2019 – BY NELSON A. KING

Several Haitian-American legislators in New York have led outrage over a Guyanese publication critical of what it describes as the influx of Haitians migrating to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state.

An unauthored article published in the Guyana Times on Friday, under the headline, “Influx of Haitians into Guyana raises major health concerns,” has drawn the wrath of not only Haitian-Americans but of other Caribbean-American legislators and leaders.  The Guyana Times supports Guyana’s Opposition  People’s Progressive Party (PPP).
