More than 80,000 undocumented Haitians have been arrested this year trying to enter illegally in the Dominican Republic, reported a senior military official of the neighboring country.

The head of the Dominican army, Major General José Matos de la Cruz, said the arrests were made by the division responsible for monitoring the border with Haiti, and of this total, about 5,000 were made in coordination with the General Directorate of Migration under the National Plan for the Regularization of Foreigners (PNRE).

Other organizations feel twice the presence of immigrants from Haiti in DR.

The head of the Dominican army said yesterday that members of the institution arrest daily at between 700 and 800 illegal aliens in the country, which are leads to the Directorate of Immigration for deportation.

José Matos de la Cruz said that in the border area with Haiti, which extends for about 380 km, between 300 and 400 Haitians are detained daily, according to "Plan Escudo", a campaign launched earlier this year by neighboring country to combat trafficking of person from Haiti.
