Environment and DGM carry out operations in Constanza and Los Haitises

Source: Listin Diario

Last Wednesday, the National Environmental Protection Service (Senpa) and the General Directorate of Migration (DGM) conducted an operation in which they removed Haitian nationals from a market selling “used clothes” in the middle of the tourist area “El Salto de Aguas Blancas” in the municipality of Constanza. The complaint arose because Haitian merchants blocked the main entrance to the aforementioned location and obstructed the road with the items they sold, causing residents to be dissatisfied.

The information was released by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, which investigated a complaint about the Haitian-installed market. Local authorities, for their part, coordinated to monitor and monitor the area in order to prevent the problem from recurring and future settlements from forming. In other news, a team from the National Environmental Protection Service (Senpa) and park rangers from the Ministry of Environment dismantled a conuco in the “Los Haitises National Park” yesterday, consisting of approximately 10 tasks of land planted with yautias.

The defendants were able to detain and arrest eight Haitian nationals who were transferred in a long-bed truck and were in charge of planting in the aforementioned park. During the operation, Senpa members and park rangers also uprooted the cultivation in this protection zone.

Haitians challenge Dominican authorities; settle again in Salto de Aguas Blancas. Haitian nationals returned to settle in the surroundings of the Salto de Aguas Blancas entrance, in the Constanza municipality, La Vega province, disregarding the order of the authorities, after they were evicted from that area this week.

This operation is told through the media release of the government, doubt press was at the site.

It could be suggested somebody, a competitor or nationalist, is at odds with Haitian Nationals selling products to the local farm workers who dot the countryside in very small settlements.. The vendors may come by once a week or other irregular schedule. Anyone who has traveled the RD has seen trucks, stores on wheels, loaded with all sorts of products, including used clothing, roaming the campo selling to the locals. The real “residents” desire these vendors because it saves them the disadvantage of travel to Constanza to make purchases. It is very doubtful the Haitian nationals would block the main entrance as it is too inclined, set a short distance away from the nearest worker settlement. The vendors are not marketing to tourists, just the locals. They set up shop next to the locals. It could be offered it was the people at odds with the Haitian nationals who notified the authorities of the residents “dissatisfaction”.

This poster has been to the area many times, seen vendors, and never had a problem with a blocked road or entrance.
