For a generation, the hostility

proxy wars across the globe.

Before the embassy's statement, there had been
confusion about whether the refugees would disembark
yesterday or today.
The Haitians were denied political asylum in the
United States because the government says they are
fleeing poverty, not political repression as asylum
cases require. The Supreme Court on Friday set aside a
federal judge's order that had blocked their return.
"Many of those who return will die," predicted
Paul Latortue, a Haitian economist who teaches at the
University of Puerto Rico and has been active in
refugee affairs.
"From both a humanitarian and political point of
view the repatriation is shameful and scandalous," said
Rev. Antoine Adrien, a grassroots Catholic church
leader and well-known partisan of ousted President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
"The U.S. government claims it wants to restore
democracy, and even threatens possible military in-
tervention to bring it about. But its real concern is the
unmanageable flow of refugees to its shores. It is
sending many of them home to certain death," Adrien
The State Department indicated it expected no such
retaliation against the refugees.
"We have received no credible reports of reprisals
against any individual Haitian who attempted to reach
the United States, including those who were
repatriated after the coup," the department said in a

As of Saturday, 10,448 Haitians were being held at
the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Another 1,500
would-be immigrants were aboard Coast Guard cutters
anchored offshore, said base spokesperson Lt. Cmdr.
John Griffin.
The State Department said about 5,500 refugees
found ineligible for asylum would be sent home first.
Asylum requests by the others remained to be decided.
The first group of 150 left Guantanamo Bay late
Saturday, and a second group of 150 was leaving
yesterday. The first two groups were trial runs, to be
followed by 500 each day, military officials said.

is to change before the crisis to

Associate Vice President of Stu-

Cianciola's concerns. She said, "One

While Cianciola said he did not
believe that the fight was a set-back,
he did indicate it demonstrated the
need for continuous policy review.
"What it is is a reminder that we
don't have the perfect formula in
place yet," he said. "It's a reminder
that we will still have a ways to go
in providing safe and enjoyable pro-
gramming events for students. So
we're just going to have to continue
working on that together."

Harper added that a beneficial
side effect of the fight was that it
allowed administrators and stu-
dents to cooperate on formulating

ing. We're not making the same mis-
takes. We didn't do as much check-

SRC members said they are not
pleased with administrative re-
sponses to the efforts students have
made to give input on decisions
regarding deputization.
"Reasonable suggestions by the
students to increase trust in the ad-
ministration and increase the shar-
ing of information between stu-
dents and the administration have
been rejected without good
reasoning," Warren said.
Van Houweling agreed that the
administration has not made the ef-
forts that he had hoped they would.
"The dialogue has the potential to
be effective. It definitely does not
get us exactly what we want,
though," he said.
Other MSA members agreed that
the administration is not meeting
student demands.
"I think that it should be appar-
ent to anyone now that these hear-
ings are a farce," Rackham Rep.
Amy Polk said. "No decision will
be made coming out of these hear-
ings because the decision to deputize
the campus police force was made
over a year ago.
"The administration's efforts
have been inadequate," said Warren.
"They're so tied to last year's men-
tality of trench warfare with the
students that they refuse to consider
what's best for the University and
the students when they deal with
this issue."

John McCloy, assistant secretary
of war at the time, attempted to
cover up De Witt's prejudice by
revising his order to say there was
no time to question Japanese-
American loyalties.
After the documents were
discovered, Hirabayashi's case was
heard and appealed in 1987. All
charges against him from the 1940s
were dropped.

"The only way it won't happen
is that people have to stand up and
say, 'No.' We have to do something
relevant in a time of crisis, not just
round people up by ancestry or
religion," he said.
Hirabayashi said he titled his
speech "Crossroads" because the
American people need to take the
Constitution to heart rather than
letting government officials make
all the decisions.
"My instinct said to obey the
Constitution;" he said, comparing
his methods to Martin Luther King
Jr. peaceful fight for justice.
"It wasn't the Constitution that
failed me. What failed me were
those entrusted to uphold it ... We
need to make a personal com-
mitment to the Constitution.
Otherwise it's not more than a scrap
of paper," he said.
Professor of American Culture
Gail Nomura said Hirabayashi's
words inspired her. "He is one of
the heroes of all Americans and
should be," she said.
