Abstract

The uniquely distinct culture of Haitian immigrants led to important socio-economic challenges, discriminatory practices, and limited opportunities in 1980s Miami.

The socio-economic challenges faced by Haitian immigrants in the 1980s, including their susceptibility to involvement in crime networks, offer valuable lessons for addressing potential migration waves from Haiti to the US today. During the 1980s and 1990s, many Haitian immigrants encountered barriers to economic integration, leading some individuals to resort to participation in illicit activities for survival. The socio-economic challenges faced by Haitian immigrants in the 1980s, including their susceptibility to involvement in crime networks, offer valuable lessons for addressing potential migration waves from Haiti to the US today. The objective of this research paper is to explore the interconnected nature of crime, immigration, and social challenges faced by Haitian immigrants during the 1980s, shedding light on the historical context that laid the foundation for contemporary discussions on homeland security.
