Christmas brings ‘total calm’ to Haiti-Dominican border
Santo Domingo.- Defense minister Maximo W. Muñoz on Thursday said the border is in total calm because the Haitians return home to be with their families during the Christmas season.
“Upon their return is when we have problems because they always try to bring a friend or family member to enter the country illegally, but thanks to Plan Shield we prevent that,” the official said.
He said Plan Shield, launched on January 1, will be bolstered later this month to keep the undocumented Haitians out.
Although Muñoz declined to specify how many guards will be added, said “all the agents that are necessary.”
The defense chief spoke after a ceremony to mark International Human Rights Day at the Armed Forces Ministry.
