What is known about the opening of the border with Haiti this Monday

Dajabon.- In Dajabón, the gate on the Haitian side remains closed after initially allowing hundreds of merchants to enter the binational plaza. Foreigners who entered the Dominican Republic brought part of their merchandise stored there back to their homeland. The Dominican government’s mandatory biometric registration recorded 2,100 foreigners on Sunday.

In Jimaní, Independencia province, the Dominican authorities opened the border with Haiti, but the access door to the Dominican Republic from the Haitian side remains closed. This closure prevents buyers from reaching the market operating on the Dominican side. Despite a meeting between Dominican merchants and Haitian transporters, there hasn’t been a response from the Haitian side regarding opening the access door.

In Elías Piña, the border was opened by the Dominican government, and the gate on the Haitian side is also open. However, Haitian merchants are hesitant to cross into the Dominican Republic to make purchases. This hesitation stems from concerns that their compatriots might take away their merchandise, as reportedly happened in the previous week.

These varying situations at different border points illustrate the complexities and challenges faced in reopening trade across the Dominican-Haitian border.

No, Haiti need to keep its border closed. There should be no trade or relations between these two natural enemy nations.

Register? First you must close the pipe. Then you clean the lines. Then you can possibly open them slowly. But if you don’t get rid of the slime at the bottom of a barrel anything you put in is tainted.

Big Mistake. They will flood in and suck you dry. Expel all illegals from Haiti first, then arm the border guards with authority to protect the border with deadly force. Then open the flow ever so slowly.
