What do you expect Haitian to do when the authorities are at the gate to grab them when they enter or leave work? Thank them? If the detained workers are deported to Haiti they have no way to obtain the pay they earned at Cap Cana. That is one thing that really pisses these people off, the salt in the deportation wound. Throwing rocks is the only protest handy to them. It is not inconceivable the employers funnel the Haitian pay into their own pockets. It is a bitter game. The employers hire the Haitians with little or no inspection of documents. They want and get their work. They advise immigration just before payday there are illegals working. Immigration goes to the gate(s) or nearby roads and detain the illegals. The employers find new workers and the cycle begins again. Government will not go after the employers for hiring illegals. Why? Think many of us know why.

President Abinader has led the way to alert the international community to help Haiti. But as countries like Canada play politics by listening to elite Haitians in places like Montreal , the people living in Haiti continue to suffer. So what do we expect people in desperate circumstances to do ? Join a committee to study the situation ?

However the Dominican government issues work permits to Haitians for $500. usd for one year. Then they make Haitians leave the country each month to cross the border at Haiti to ‘ check in ‘ for another $20. Why? Everyone knows Haitians are here to try to stay alive or make money to send home.

While there are many extra expenses to the Dominican government for medical care for Haitians , the government admits that Haiti is its number one customers for exports . Dominican republic makes a lot of money from Haiti .

Name another country that allows undocumented people to attack its law-enforcement officers other than DR? In the US they would get shot in the spat.

Americans also believe that their border patrol agents are being too soft towards them.

Wrong!! The US border with Mexico has tens of thousands of illegals crossing almost daily! Nobody shoots anybody. They set up refugee camps and feed/clothe them and give them medical care. And they don’t work building all the buildings in the US like the Haitians do in the DR.

Dr won’t take the responsibility of the failure of the Haitian government
Legal work is welcome, illegal immigration is not
Luis abnader continue the mass deportation, increase it
If not Dominicans living abroad will get a government to do it
