    Not true, lots of Haitians have obtained their documentation and have gone through the process, but yes the new regulations do help them separate the legal from the illegal.

    We were at the Jimani border on Wednesday, and two DGM yellow busses frog-marched maybe 50 Haitians across the border.

    There is more leinancy on market day. However, the check point inspectiions are much more rigorous on those days. In Jimani, the first being just down the only road from the border.

    Howeever, those inspections do not catch those rumbling through the underbrush to get around the border and military check points.

    Yes, some of them have papers not most of those coming across borders illegally. The DR has the absolute right to enforce their immigration policy, which is designed to make the process difficult for those from Haiti, who have a hard time getting the documentation and have little resources to complete the process.

    The Dominican immigration process is difficult for people from any country. I know, I 've been through and am now Dominican. When I did my citizenship ceremony there were more about 6 or 7 Haitians also receiving their Dominican citizenship.

    I think that the government wants to stop illegal immigration, but corrupt border officials are thwarting their efforts.
