Haiti - Social : Violent clash between Haitian and Dominican police
Monday, the Dominican Police violently dispersed a group of undocumented Haitian trying to enter by force in the headquarters of the Ministry of Interior and the police in Santo Domingo. Immigrants, many sugar cane cutters, required that they receive documents guaranteeing their legal stay in the Dominican Republic after June 17, registration deadline in the National Plan of Regularization of Foreigners (PNRE) that ends Wednesday at 7:00 pm

The agents in charge of security of the building, formed a cordon to block the passage to a Haitian angry mob. Due to the protesters' refusal to submit to the order and disperse voluntarily, the police beat with baton several of them, fired tear gas and fired shots in the air .

During the clashes, a pregnant Haitian woman identified as Marie Louise, overcome by tear gas had to be transported to the maternity of Our Lady of Altagracia.

With it remain just 48 hours before the time fixed in the PNRE the Dominican Chancellor, Andrés Navarro, said Monday that the mass deportation of Haitians living illegally information in Dominican territory was not founded "There has been a misunderstanding. What ends on 17 is the registration of persons in the Plan, that is all that will happen. On June 18, we will not begin the deportations [...] there will be a period of 45 days for those who did not complete their files."

After these 5 days, will begin the eviction protocol in an ordinary situation, which means that there will be nothing of mass, no persecution of people to throw them out of the country. Deportation procedures will be be make within hours of the day and in coordination with the Haitian government to hand over the people.

"When a person will be arrested, a folder will be created, which will include among other biometric data, which will then be given to Haitian authorities. All this will be done case by case, what is another indication that there will be no mass deportations," explained the Chancellor.

Ruben Dario Paulino Sem, the Director of the Dominican migration, said the 45-day period, mentioned by the Chancellor Andrés Navarro, is a administrative period provided in the law and not a general moratorium. This delay will only benefit those who have registered to PNRE. The illegal immigrants who do not have documents or who will not be registered no later than 17 June 2015, are likely to be arrested and possibly deported as of Wednesday, June 18.

A nuance that seems to have been misunderstood, both at the level of regularization applicants that of Government of Haiti, who spoke of a "moratorium of 45 days." Ruben Dario Paulino Sem recalled he had instructions from the President Medina o ensure that there is no abuse in the repatriation plan, or violating of the rights of undocumented migrants. However, he stressed that the Dominican authorities will be firm in the implementation of laws and regulations of the country in the return of illegal in their country.
