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.
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.

Unchecked Haitian immigration makes it into the top 5 worries of Dominicans for the country. This is the case since the early 2000 at least. Look at the polls done by the Dominican media every few years.

Notice though how Dominicans choose Haitian immigration when that is the only choice regarding this problem. When among the choices are Haitian immigration in general and illegal Haitian immigration, Dominicans pick illegal Haitian immigration. What many people aren’t in agreement with is supporting illegal Haitian immigration, not Haitian immigration in general. People have no issues with legal immigrants from Haiti and no one protest that in every naturalization ceremony there are several Haitians becoming Dominican citizens.
In my naturalization ceremony, there were 11 Haittians, 3 Cubans, 4 Italians, 10 Russians, 2 Chinese, 2 Canadians, 6 Colombians, 8 French, and 3 Americans,

In french, though.
Wow!

It's like these French reporters are saying that the DR is a fully developed economy that doesn't have challenges of its own, and the Dominicans are the bad guys for not helping Haiti.
Forget what France did to Haiti to ruin it through debt. That doesn't matter. The Dominicans are the bad guys period.

As a French TV station they should dig into their own history and relationship with Haiti first.
