Should US Let More Haitian Earthquake Victims Enter the Country?

Hosted by

As the US and other countries meet in Montreal today to plan a larger conference on reconstructing Haiti, there's growing pressure to admit refugees to the US, and discussion is beginning to sound like a microcosm of the broader immigration debate. Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) says "humanitarian parole" will allow about 200 Haitian children to have severe injuries treated in Miami. But the Departments of State and Homeland Security are in no hurry to bend the rules. Amy Goldstein reports for the Washington Post.
