I’m glad the woman got caught, but I’m very worry that DR is a birthing place for Haitians. This women are birthing machines which are overwhelming DR healthcare system. Once they give birth for free in DR they never go back to their country. These people are going to take over our country and probably destroy it like that have their own country. Haitians need to be in Haiti.

Anyone would be worried. Just imagine if it the situation was flipped. Dominican women outcompeting Haitian women when it comes to births in Haiti. Haitians would rightfully loss their cool.

There was a kidnapping of a baby in a hospital in Santo Domingo Este in January. The kidnapper, a woman, pretended to be a nurse. It could be offered the public is more aware of this sad kidnapping activity now… because of what happened in January. This public awareness influenced the people to respond productively to detain the woman in San Francisco de Macoris.
