Haitians take over border towns
Border towns in Pedernales, Independencia, Elias Pina, Dajabon and Montecristi provinces are no one’s land with mass immigration of Haitians, claimed PLD deputy Francisco Bautista in a report in El Nacional. He said that the border control authorities, including the Specialized Border Control Corps (Cesfront) are not capable of controlling the immigration of Haitians to the country. He said for decades the Dominican government has not had a structure for defense of the border and sovereignty. He said that the 385 km border can be described as a no-man’s land and ghost border.
Bautista said that border town hospitals are full of Haitians, and for each Dominican born there, two Haitians are born. He said there are communities, such as Juan Garcia, where for each Dominican household, there are five Haitian. He denounced theft by Haitians of cattle and horses, without any action by the Dominican authorities.
