The community is a mix of permanent residents, naturalized citizens and migrants who may or may not have work permits, said Jetta Baptiste, president of the Bahamas' Haitian Society. Many are waiting for immigration officials to process their paperwork, she said. The 500-home settlement, known as Pigeon Pea, borders an even larger Haitian settlement called "The Mud" that was built on state land. It is home to more than 2,000 Haitian families who live just yards (meters) away from the immigration department in Marsh Harbor.
