Haiti regime sends troops to remote island to crack down on mass exodus under guise of helping the poor

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) A long forsaken island north of Haiti is getting help from the Caribbean nation's government.

The office of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe said in a statement Saturday that it has begun a six-month program to help the people of lle de la Tortue, some of the poorest people on this already impoverished island nation.

This program will create seven restaurants and yield 1,000 jobs through a sanitation program.

Farmers will receive free seeds and others will receive goats.

The national police force will also send 30 officers to crack down on illegal migration.
