El Ecuadorable is da man, again


“Don’t worry, René, we got your back!” Ah oui, c’est très Ecuadorable, non?

This does my heart some good…

On Tuesday, at the Unasur summit, the president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, signed an executive decree legalizing all citizens of Haiti who have been in Ecuador before January 31, 2010.

The proceeding, which also benefits spouses and minor children who entered the country under the same conditions, grants a non-immigrant visa, valid for five years, free of charge.

This is one of the decisions taken by the government of Ecuador as part of its humanitarian-aid plan for citizens of Haiti affected by the earthquake of January 12.

Translation mine.

Let’s hope it does some good for Haiti, too.

(And hey, Raffy…let some more of ’em in if they need a place to stay, y’hear?)
