Haiti - DR : More than a hundred Haitians intercepted at the Dominican border
Sunday in the region of Dajabón, members of the Specialized Corps of Security of Land Borders (Cesfront) intercepted more than a hundred Haitians who were trying to enter Dominican territory illegally. All were handed over to the Directorate General of Migration (DGM) for identification before their repatriation to Haiti.

One of these groups of Haitians, consisting of men, women and children, crossed this part of the border at night, but they were detected by Cesfront drones which are equipped with thermal cameras. Other groups entered in the early hours of the day and were intercepted by motorized patrols.

It should be noted that in recent days, several hundred Haitians in an irregular migratory situation have been intercepted by the Cesfront as they entered the Dominican territory irregularly.

It should be noted that if a certain number of Haitians continue to want to enter the Dominican Republic illegally, a very large number voluntarily leave Dominican territory because of the loss of their job and the Covid-19.

From May 16 to mid-June 57,669 Haitians living in the Dominican Republic returned to Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31118-haiti-dr-more-than-17-000-haitians-voluntarily-returned-to-the-country-in-2-weeks.html .
