Duartian in the USA calls on the people to expel illegal Haitians from the Dominican Republic

The criminologist and activist Miguel Estrella, who is also co-producer of the analysis program “Tal y Como Es” with Arelis Mejia, urged the Dominican people to expel illegal Haitians from the country in order to prevent a future avalanche across the country’s northern and southern borders. The frustration propels Estrella to become a public force to remove illegal Haitian migrants from the Caribbean nation because of the lax measures taken by the immigration authorities and the government of President Luis Abinader to stop an eventual avalanche of Haitians through the northern and southern borders.

Haitians who possess the necessary documentation to live legally in the nation should not be harmed because they are protected by the law, continued Estrella. He emphasized that he does not believe that the proposals made at the international level for a multilateral military intervention in Haiti would be a solution to the crisis, in addition to the inadequate steps taken by the PRM government to fend off the presence of undocumented Haitians in the country. Institutions in a state that, like that of the Haitians, “is a ghost because they do not exist or function” rather than failing.

He also disregarded the possibility that the UN’s army of blue cases wouldn’t serve as a useful tool for restoring order, stability, and state organization in Haiti.

Duarte was for the inclusion of Haitians in Dominican society. They even backed a Haitian President after DR’s independence. Eli Hereaux. Keep in mind, the hatred for Haitians was not factored into public policy until Trujillo and anti-Haitianismo. He was Haitian himself (wiki him). Why did he promote his derogatory policies? He was a really greedy man! The US only agreed to support the DR financially if its leadership under Trujillo distanced himself from the ‘blackies.’ The US strategy was to back the dictatorships of Duvalier in Haiti and Trujillo in the DR. The problem arose after Trujillo finally got satisfied with his wealth and started to defy uncle sam. Duvalier was US picked to keep Haiti in a welfare position.

Either immigration laws are enforced in accordance with the constitution, or we lose our nation.

i just love how they can’t claim that the prm isn’t doing anything because they know its not true, but didn’t say anything while 2 million got in during the previous dictatorship. we exist as a contry because the prm won in 2020, otherwise the pld would have fused us already

I have seen so many Germans living in France, so many Indians and Pakistanis living in the UK and so many Italy and so many Asians living in Australia..all peacefully and all contributing to the economies that I find the hatred towards Haitians rather distressing. I think that they contribute more to the DR than they take from it and I have no problem with 2 million living here . But I must say that where I live, there are only a few thousand of Haitians.

The United States and Puerto Rico expel illegal Dominicans all the time. DR needs to follow the immigration Law. Every illegal in DR needs to be deported including US, European, Canadian, Chinese, and Haitians.

The reality is that no other nationality is being forced to leave the DR but Haitians. Since that is the case, the policies are racist! I am from the US and I used to purchase a $10 visitor’s visa when I visited the DR. I lived there for years illegally since my visa was only valid for 30 days. Guess what, nobody ever asked me if I was Haitian or not, and nobody ever asked me to leave the country because I had overstayed my visa. I wonder why???

Sorry “Sillyputty” that made no sense.
First, you (a US citizen) entered “legally’ into the Dominican Republic and overstayed. Second, a US citizen does not need a “visa” to enter DR. The penalty for overstaying is just a fine, no need for deportation.
Third, Haitians need a visa to enter DR. Any haitian that entered illegally into DR or overstayed their visa, is subject to deportation. This is exactly what many countries do, including the United States.
