Immigration says tougher controls at border aim to halt reentry
Santo Domingo.- Immigration director Ruben Paulino on Sunday announced tougher controls to halt illegal immigration at border crossings, a measure he says aims to prevent the reentry of Haitians and other foreigners who’ve already been deported for residing in the Dominican Republic illegally.
He said Immigration staff who work at the border has been increased and trained, in addition to the use of modern technology to detect forged documents such as passports and fake IDs.
Paulino, speaking after a recognition at Dominican Army Headquarters, stressed that the weekly repatriation of undocumented aliens are carried out with respect for human rights without any abuse.
He said the number of Haitians who’ve been deported in the last three months will be officially announced, as well as from other nationalities who entered illegally and will be repatriated in the coming days.
