Video: Haitian migrants risk lives

Risk-fraught journeys to escape Haiti fail to deter illegal migrants from trying.



    Thousands of illegal Haitian migrants are taking dangerous risks to flee a country whose economy can barely stay afloat.

    Officials say the perilous journey is part of a criminal trafficking scheme which many Haitians pay for with their lives.

    Yet many of those seeking to migrate say they are not deterred by the risks because they have no choice and no future in Haiti.
