    Default 551 Foreigners Detained

    551 Foreigners we’re detained today in San Pedro and Puerto Plata provinces, as well as in Santo Domingo

    Odd article as it states 193 Haitians were taken for deportation near the border, one Venezuelan taken to Haina for deportation, but that leaves hundreds of others unidentified.

    They arrest them all to start with - 551 then they check the papers and biometrics. Those here legally are let go. Rest get booted out so 194 have to leave and the rest can stay.

    2 Questions:

    1. Did they pay their overstay fee when deported?

    2. Will they be allowed re-entry?

    (Sorry I couldn't help it).

    They didnt come with visa or under turist card rules. so overstay do not apply.

    Hopefully this doesn't mean they just arrest anyone in their path that doesn't look Dominican an then later they check to see if their legal. This would be a tourism killer!

    Don't worry about that. They know who they want to get out of here.

    551 not a big deal, they would be able to catch 2000 on a Sunday afternoon in soccer game just in Santiago.

    That's right. A Dominican friend of mine who looks Haitian was arrested and taken to the police station. They didn't accept that her cedula was real, or was really hers, but she was released when her fingerprints matched up. So racism is alive and well here!

    It's time they come to the Bavaro-Punta Cana area and check all WHITE foreigners here and deport them when they don't have their papers in order!
