Enrique García the Director General of Immigration, Enrique García, warned that his Agency will not tolerate that illegal Haitians continue to confront the authorities with violence to sow disorder, as happened quoted Juan Bosch.

He stressed that the DGM will take measures and that the staff will return to Ciudad Juan Bosch, in the coming days "We will go with the protection and security necessary to carry out the work established by law [...] we will not back down not and we will not tolerate in any way that these people in an illegal situation in the country, lack respect for the migratory authorities," recalling that the aggressors will have to assume their acts before the justice and that they will be punished by law.
