Don’t send Haitians to Dominican territory, official warns Brazil
Santo Domingo.- Immigration Agency director on Wednesday said the country isn’t obliged to receive Haitian nationals repatriated from Brazil or other nations, if they didn’t depart from the country.
Jose Ricardo Taveras noted that in recent months Brazil has deported more than 300 Haitians who allegedly departed from Dominican Republic.
He said the country, which signed off on the International Migration Convention, is obliged to receive foreigners who’ve departed illegally from Dominican ports and airports to other nations, but if those Haitians Brazil plans repatriate didn’t leave from Dominican territory, Brasilia “could save the money of their airfare because we will not receive them here.”
The official stressed that although the issue is about human beings, the country isn’t obliged to receive those who’ve traveled to Brazil from other nations.
