    Haitians started immigrating to the United States in the early 1800s, but did not receive much attention until the 1950s and early 1960s when Haitian immigration

    The second wave of immigration occurred in the mid 1970s. These immigrants belonged to the lower-middle class.

    In 1986, another mass immigration to Miami from Haiti took place when the oppressive Duvalier dictatorship ended. Miami was overwhelmed by the number of Haitian immigrants and unwilling to accommodate them, so they were relocated to other towns.

    After President Jean Bertrand Aristide was overthrown in 1991, another wave of Haitians came to the U.S.

    In 2000, Florida had 182,224 foreign-born Haitians, 43.5% of the total foreign-born population from Haiti in the United States
