Haiti - Politic : The Mayor of Santiago qualifies Claude Joseph as a «bandit»
The remarks of the former Haitian Prime Minister Claude Joseph, on the "primary anti-Haitianism of the Dominicans" and the "hypocrisy" of President Abinader, followed by the Dominican decision to prohibit the entry of the former Prime Minister Joseph on Dominican territory https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37591-haiti-flash-former-pm-claude-joseph-and-12-gang-leaders-banned-from-entering-the-dominican-republic.html risks rekindling the embers of nationalism on the island...

In the Dominican Republic, political leaders and different sectors of society support the Government's decision to ban former Haitian Prime Minister Claude Joseph from entering the country...

"[...] What this bandit is saying is what many of these Haitian nationals are doing in the Dominican Republic, in wheelbarrows, flea markets, degrading our forests... giving birth in our public hospitals, 10 Haitian women on 8 are in an irregular migratory https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37188-haiti-health-tens-of-thousands-of-haitians-continue-to-give-birth-each-year-in-the-dominican-republic.html ..." declared Abel Martinez Durán, the Mayor of Santiago, visibly exasperated... Adding speaking of the Haitians "[...] They are the ones who kill their President, they are the ones who assassinate and kidnap people and they who have a bankrupt State, they are the real protagonists."

Meanwhile, elected members of the opposition Dominican Liberation Party (former Party of Leonel Fernandez) consider Claude Joseph as "a conspirator and an enemy of the Dominican people..."

For their part, members of Congress say they are worried, fearing that Claude Joseph is only trying to win the support of Haitians for political purposes, on the basis of hate speech directed against the Dominican Republic.

Moreover, following the banning of Claude Joseph and a dozen dangerous gang leaders, the Commander General of the Dominican army, Major General Carlos Antonio Fernández Onofre indicated that the army was tightening its controls and the surveillance, particularly at the Dajabón border, and that the military is ready to enforce the law and protect Dominican territory within the border limits.
