    Default Haiti's Earthquake and Immigration in the DR

    Now that it has been at least 7 months since the earthquake that devastated the Ouest and Sud departments of Haiti, what has happened to the presence of immigrants from Haiti in your area of the DR?

    Ignore the word 'illegal' in the question, this is meant to judge DR1ers perception of the Haitian presence post the earthquake.

    People keep banging on about the increase but I genuinely can't see any difference to what we had before. There is a massive increase in Haitian Students, thats all I notice.

    About the same amount of Haitians here in the east, mostly employed by Dominican building companies, gardening companies, resorts etc.
    As I have no way of checking all their papers I can't reply to the poll, sorry.

    Good point. I haven't noticed any increase in my area - legal or illegal.

    If you don't see any it's probably because they all moved to my street.

    Significantly more in Juan Dolio. The lady who gave birth last week had no papers at all as they were lost in the earthquake together with her husband and child. She was brought to DR by the authorities she said - no idea which authorities. For what was supposed to be a tourist spot, the highest population by far - around 70% i would say are Haitian, followed by Dominicans, a few ex pats and the smallest population by far are tourists
