PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Hundreds of Haitians are scrambling to find jobs, food and housing after being deported from the U.S. to a country that they left almost a decade ago and is now largely unfamiliar: The president has been assassinated, an earthquake has destroyed their relatives’ homes, and gang violence has displaced thousands who now sleep on the floor in temporary shelters. The migrants, some with young children, are now vying with millions of other Haitians who are trying to survive amid an economic slump and deepening political instability that has led to a spike in violence and unemployment.
