Haiti - FLASH : DR multiplies controls, nearly 4,000 Haitians repatriated in recent days
Following complaints from various sectors of Dominican society, on the presence of a large number of Haitians in the streets of major cities and in many areas and localities of the country, the soldiers of the Border Security Specialist Corps (CESFRONT) on Monday greatly improved security both at border crossings and in areas under military control, particularly in the area of the international road, said Sugar Frugis, Director of CESFRONT, adding that "New operations are underway in other parts of the country to detect illegal". https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21499-haiti-flash-more-than-140-000-haitians-turned-back-at-the-dominican-border.html

Nearly 4,000 Haitians in irregular migratory situations were arrested and repatriated to Haiti. Thursday hundreds of Haitians crossed the border in Jimani. Nearly 7 buses filled with Haitians from different regions of the Dominican Republic waiting in line. Most of our compatriots had been arrested without document to stay, wile others had decided to voluntarily return to Haiti with their personal belongings to avoid deportation. "I prefer to go to my country and start a small business, things will become difficult here against us," said a Haitian at the window of one of the buses.

Haiti's Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, Idalbert Pierre-Jean, declared at a meeting with members of the Border Affairs Committee of the Chamber of Deputies "It is obvious that a country's immigration laws have full sovereignty. Normally, you must respect what the authorities order, the Dominican authorities have the right to deport all illegal immigrants found on their territory without papers" adding "All we can do is demand that the civil rights of our compatriots be respected" and as such, he assures "the Embassy of Haiti will remain vigilant to enforce these rights."
