    According to the article, it costs an average of $425 to deport an illegal foreigner by air. That means that legal residents are paying $100/yr everytime they renew for $425 worth of "coverage". Meanwhile, I would guess that less than 1 in 5000 legal residents are ever deported in any one year. Hmmmmm......

    I'm beginning to think that legal residents are really paying a lot of the cost of deporting these illegals.

    DGM is not a closed system, it's a part of the government budget machine. its income flows into the treasury and is redistributed rather than being cycled within that single office itself. anyone who pays anything to the dominican government, from tourist cards to residencies, from income taxes to marbete, from driving licenses to police checks - it all contributes to deportations, hospitals, government salaries and so on.

    and that's after half of it gets stolen by politicos.

    That's all true but, as I said, the premium that residents are now paying for deportation insurance really has nothing to do with the actual cost of deporting LEGAL residents. Who even knows where all the money is going? Only 2 or 3 companies are authorized to issue this insurance.

    And just think of how much they'll be bringing in when the 250,000 that are currently in the PNRE finally become residents and have to start paying for this when they renew. There will be a lot more money flowing somewhere! They've come up a real money maker on this one.

    I don't think that will ever happen, those 250,000 are haitians that while given two extensions to complete the paperwork to get a residencia, they have been unable to do so, just 7,000 have completed after almost 4 years

    Yeah, who knows(?). DGM will probably just "extend and pretend" forever. This was supposedly the last extension, but I doubt it.

    From today's DR1 news:

    Illegal foreigners arrested in Santiago
    The Migration Agency (DGM) has carried out raids in different parts of Santiago and arrested 630 foreigners of different nationalities who were in the country illegally. The were arrests in following sectors of Santiago: Los Guandules, Cañada del Diablo, Amansa Tigre, Multis de Pekin, Barrio Lindo, La Ceibita, Camboya, Hoya del Caimito, Don Pedro, Licey al Medio, Gurabo, Los Pérez, Tamboril, Cerro Alto, Cruce de Jacagua among others.

    Following processing using biometrics and the DGM database, 279 Haitians were deported back to Haiti via Dajabon and Elias Piña, and another three were taken to the Investigation Department of the DGM, together with four Venezuelans.

    There have been similar raids in another 22 provinces over the last few months as the DGM continues to look for those in the country illegally.

    I wonder who were and what happened to the other 344 people mentioned?

    Has any overstayer on this forum, been stopped at a DGM roadside check, been asked for papers and then let go in the past 6 months? I'm just trying to determine if there is any reason to believe that North Americans/Europeans are being given a break when these checks are being run?

    "Privileged overstayers" are a very small percentage of the illegals in this country. Those who drive enough and far enough to encounter a road block even fewer. I expect the number to be small. One would think that enough time has passed since the "gringo roundup" that someone would be able to offer some first hand experience of what transpired at one of these roadside stops.

    Immigration is working in Santiago in the mornings usually between 5am-8am
    rounding up Haitians for deportation on a weekly basis. Not sure why this is news.

    Granted Haitians and Venezuelans make up the vast majority of those identified, detained and removed. These announcements don't very often supply the number of "first worlders" involved but occasionally they do. I am just wondering if a small number of this group are involved and just not reported, identified and let go or just not stopped in the first place.

    The law of probability would suggest that by now, if the media was doing its job, there should be a few reports of the "entitled ones" being caught up in these ongoing operations. I am curious to learn what happened when it was determined the stay outlasted the passport stamp.
