We were asked to follow-up on this to help clarify a couple points. 

 Unfortunately, humanitarian parole is not an option as it has been suspended.  Also, for the time being, all NIV operations have been suspended at the US Embassy in Port au Prince.  We would encourage the family to keep monitoring the Embassy’s website  to see when those operations may reopen so that Mr. Betor may reapply for a VISA.

 Please feel free to contact us again with any additional questions.

 Warm regards,

US Department of State Haiti Task Force

Life is just not fair.

    Don’t know if this is true or not–and I suppose since he has no passport this is not even an option–but I read somewhere that someone had gone to the DR and to the US embassy there and received better treatment. May have been an urban legend.

    Stay strong. Stay convicted. “My heart rejoices in the Lord! The Lord has made me strong. Now I have an answer for my enemies; I rejoice because You rescued me. No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one besides You; there is no Rock like our God.” 1 Samuel 2:1-2
