Haiti - Dominican Republic : IOM coordinate Haitian returns
Friday, nearly 170 Haitians in irregular migratory situation, living in the Dominican Republic, especially in the area of Santiago, have returned voluntarily to Haiti. The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in coordination with the Dominican Government, helped vulnerable Haitian migrants to return to their home communities in the north of Haiti.

Our compatriots in several buses and trucks carrying their moves, crossed the bridge of Dajabón between the two countries at 10:00 am, day of the binational market in the municipality.

"We are satisfied with the work that IOM done because it is making a great contribution to solving a problem that is becoming increasingly difficult due to the mass migration of undocumented Haitians in the neighboring republic," said the Director Lorenzo Paul of the relief organization and human rights in Haiti.

Recall that between June 2015 and December 2015 129,000 Haitians in irregular migratory situation have already returned to Haiti repatriated by authorities or voluntarily https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-16326-haiti-social-more-than-129-000-haitians-have-left-dr-in-8-months.html

During this period, on average, for each Haitian repatriated by Dominican authorities, nearly 8 Haitians have chosen to return "voluntarily" in Haiti.

In January 2016 this ratio was significantly reduced to 1 repatriated for 2 voluntary return, with a significant monthly increase of number of Haitians repatriated by Dominican authorities https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-16583-haiti-dr-more-than-7-000-haitians-back-to-haiti-january-2016.html
