In the last ten years, both the Preval administration (God Bless his soul- Rene Preval died a few months ago) and the Martelly administration were more interested in lining their pockets then helping fellow Haitians. It is rather ironic that Wilson Laleau the ring-leader of the Petrocaribe conspiracy is now telling American media about his government outreach to help Haitian immigrants.
