Why do Afghans get asylum but not the Haitians?

Anonymous
Before you make assumptions, I'm not for illegal immigration. I believe people should go through the legal immigration system like anyone else.

Afghans were granted asylum and the US government asked other countries to take on Afghan refugees.
Why aren't the Haitians getting the same treatment? Their country is in turmoil. An assassinated president, an earthquake that displaces hundreds of thousands. And most of their problems stem from slavery. Haiti fought the French and won their freedom (given Haitians are not native to Haiti - they are from Africa and landed in Haiti due to slavery). And even though THEY won the war. They still have to pay the French reparations for their freedom. Don't they deserve help too?
