The Brazilian Ministry of Justice acknowledged last month that it was studying measures to stop illegal border crossings, but so far, no plans had been adopted. It is because of the fear that Brazil restricts the entry of Haitians in 2012 at the border of the Amazon, that our compatriots cross in greater numbers the border.

According to the Jesuit Refugee Service, networks are taking advantage of the difficult situation in Haiti, to recruit and to convince Haitians that they will find work in countries such as Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia before abandoning them, after receiving large sums of money.
