On Tuesday the Minister of the Presidency, Lisandro Macarrulla said that women in labor who arrive in the Dominican Republic from the neighboring nation are not mistreated, because they are offered care that is not provided in their country of origin.

I hope Putin takes care of the UN and it’s false narratives. The truth is that Haitian pregnant women are pushing Dominican women out of their own healthcare system. Go to any public hospital and you will see that most people their are undocumented Haitians.
