The bold is not entirely true. Most Haitians (along with the rest of the work force) work for medium and small business or are working for themselves in mostly informal operations. Some dedicate to beg, though many could be involved in some mafia and instead of doing that for themselves.Either you live under a rock or you are applying the Ostrich technique.......
On a more serious note, i have no idea what the DR media criticize or not.
However DR politicians and the big land owners --- and the Riccos as a whole---do not want rid of illegal haitians ......... they use them as cheap labour. Always have, always will.
Middle class dominicans are also happy to have cheap cheap maids and gardners and handymen that are willing to work hard and not complain.
The only ones complaining are the lower class dominicans, ie the poor. Granted they make up the majority of the population, but sadly nobody gives a what they want or think.
Rounding up a few haitians and pretending to secure the border is much like throwing around a few salamis and rum bottles a few days before elections.
Keeps the masses docile. The worst that could happen ---- in the eyes of the DR " Elite" --- is for the dominicans to wake up and see that the politicians and the wealthy are ing on them day in and day out.
