These guys continue to see the DR as a sanctuary. Stupid move! The first place where your name is posted is at the borders. Brandt tried the same escape to the DR plan and was quickly caught. Haiti is a very big place. So many small towns where jeeps can’t even pass. Hide where nobody without a donkey or an ATV would dare look for you.
