More thousands Haitians deported from Dom. Rep. in one week

Port-au-Prince, May 27 (Prensa Latina) Nearly 1,113 Haitians were deported from the neighboring Dominican Republic between May 16 and 23, denounced today the Support Group for Repatriates and Returnees (GARR).

Most of the migrants were arrested in the Dominican city of Juan Bosch, where Dominican authorities carry out operations to detain undocumented persons.

Mike Lysias, GARR executive, deplored that even workers or pregnant women were arbitrarily expelled, despite the laws signed by the two countries regarding deportations.

Former Prime Minister Claude Joseph criticized this week the abuses, violations and “excesses” of the neighboring authorities, and suggested that they respond to a systematic and anti-Haitian racism present in the Dominican Republic.

“The international community should closely observe the numerous cases of human rights violations against Haitians in recent times in Juan Bosch, Dominican Republic. Systematic racism and anti-Haitianism in Dominican Republic are unacceptable,” the also former foreign minister wrote on Twitter.

Earlier this month, GARR denounced that 7,300 Haitians returned from the neighboring country in April, almost half of them deported, and more than 2,800 testified to having been imprisoned before being taken to the border.

This phenomenon has increased since last year, amid diplomatic tensions between the two countries.
