ABSTRACT
Reports that the experiences of his predecessors could explain President George Bush's zeal to repatriate to Haiti the 6,500 boat people who have tried in vain to reach America since their country's September coup. The criticism of former President Jimmy Carter's granting permission for 17,000 Haitians to come ashore; Former President Ronald Reagan was praised for ending the influx; Little distinction seen between a political and an economic refugee.
