    Default What is going on with deportations?

    This was announced by the DGM yesterday:

    "The Migration Office has carried out a series of operations in different points of the country and arrested 2,352 people including 787 Haitians who were in the country illegally or trying to enter the country illegally.
    The operations took place in Greater Santo Domingo, Santiago de los Caballeros, Puerto Plata, Moca, La Vega, Mao, Valverde and San Cristóbal.
    As well as Haitians, also arrested were Venezuelans, Colombians, Peruvians, Puerto Ricans, United States nationals and other nationalities."

    Nothing surprising about this apart from the fact that usually over 90% are Haitian and this time it was only 33%. The figures included those not allowed to enter - so were they turning away whole plane loads of Venezuelans? In addition there seem to be a lot of foreigners being arrested at the moment - Venezuelans, Colombians and Serbians just yesterday. is the DR being invaded by more and more bad guys from overseas?

    Haitians was 1,787, I read it on Listin Diario, still most of them are Haitian, note that most of them are Haitians returned from the border trying to come ilegally. Still more than 90%.

    My understanding is that they often focus on people working illegally. I'm sure there are many foreigners that are guilty of this.

    Apologies, the newspaper I read it in had it wrong - but that is 76% not the usual more than 90%. It still means that 565 non Haitians were not allowed to enter or were deported.

    Truth is I didnt make maths, as we says in spanish was al ojo por ciento, just a guess maybe are stoping to enter here people with very bad criminal record, if you remember police captured few months ago 11 italians wanted, they arrived here is not issues, and also do not remember the other nationalaty was captured too, so maybe inmigration is doing their job for few months.
