This chapter examines the state of affairs in Haiti a year after the earthquake. It begins by discussing the return of Jean-Claude Duvalier, who was charged with corruption and embezzlement but defied house arrest, touring around town in a luxury automobile. It then considers what Haitians and grassroots and nonprofit organizations felt regarding Duvalier's return. It also describes the cholera epidemic that struck Haiti as well as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's decision to resume deportations of people with “serious criminal convictions.” Given health and sanitation conditions in Haiti, especially in its deportee holding cells, the chapter shows that the move was opposed by human rights and refugee organizations.

Keywords:   cholera, Haiti, Jean-Claude Duvalier, corruption, grassroots organizations, nonprofit organizations, Department of Homeland Security, deportations
