A policeman and a Haitian injured in a confusing operation in Punta Cana

A group of Haitians threw bottles and stones at a contingent of the National Police in a confusing incident in the tourist area of La Altagracia, specifically at gate 17 in the Cap Cana complex.

According to Diario Libre, the incident began after two Haitian individuals jumped from the bus in which they were being transported, one of them being injured.  Subsequently, the Haitians took stones and bottles, which were thrown at the agents.

According to a preliminary report, a policeman and a Haitian were injured. However, the authorities have not clarified whether the Haitians who were on the bus were undocumented or not, where they were being taken and by whom.

Suspect gate 17 is the workers entry and exit.

It is an unsaid understanding the police authorities to include immigration will not enter Cap Cana. They wait outside the gate off property to detain illegals or those who they think are illegal, people who are going to or leaving work.

What’s so confusing about undocumented Haitians stoning immigration officers? Is part of their culture, just take a look at what’s going on in Haiti right now.

Illegal Haitians build all the buildings in Punta Cana. Somebody must not have paid the Immigration Police their bribe. Otherwise they look the other way. 4 Haitians were killed and 1 security guide.
