Port-au-Prince, Mar 15 (Prensa Latina) More than 24,000 Haitians were sent back from neighboring Dominican Republic, as revealed by the Support Group for Returnees and Refugees (GARR) which also condemned systematic violence against migrants.

GARR criticized the situation of migrants facing abuse, forced deportations, inhuman and degrading treatment as well as discrimination and lack of legal protection has worsened in the last five months.

Women and children are the ones affected the most, GARR reported.

In total, 24,428 people were deported to Haiti, including 219 pregnant women and 331 unaccompanied minors.

GARR deplored that, despite seemingly calm at the border in February, questioned Dominican authorities who withdrew the comprehensive bill on human trafficking and smuggling of migrants after pressure from various sectors.

Plus, GARR described the detention conditions as deplorable, and regretted the victims reported recurrent violations of their rights, robberies, as well as violence and sexual aggression.
