Dominicans lead the call for Haiti’s sake

Santo Domingo.- The universal support, mainly from the United States, that the Dominican Republic has been requesting along with other countries to come to the aid of neighboring Haiti, has so far not received a strong response from the international community.

The Haitian people today are submerged in a devastating crisis due to the shortage of fuel caused by the gangs and that threaten to collapse all basic services.

Access to the oil terminals is under the control of armed groups, which impede the supply of fuel, which has practically paralyzed the neighboring nation.

The situation has given way to a massive migration of Haitians that worries the presidents of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader; from Costa Rica, Carlos Alvarado Quezada, and Laurentino Cortizo Cohen, from Panama, who signed a joint declaration with proposals aimed at mitigating the exodus.

The US administration will not come to aid in this…just look at the way the border with Mexico is being handled…welcoming illegals left and right…

Bad US policies have caused this crisis and now the Biden Administration is hands off! I am a 44 yr resident missionary in Haiti where we have seen the US led Core Groups arbitrary appointment of current Prime Minister who is also an implicated assassin, obstructing justice and surrounding himself with known traffickers and terrorists. Meanwhile one gang refuses to allow fuel deliveries unless the PM resigns; the entire country of 11 million Haitians held hostages agrees. This is all the result of the worst Ambassador in decades Michele Sison who is now Assistant Secretary of State.
