Haiti’s Ministry of Foreign Relations again raises the same war flag of human rights against the Dominican Republic that it has for years. The Haitian public relations and international lobby for years has worked in subduing the DR to pick up the tab for the chaos and lack of security and social services in Haiti.

In Haiti, the tradition over decades has been not to act but rather to blame “others,” and particularly the Dominican Republic for the country’s dire state. The banners of racism and human rights have been part of the lobby for years while hundreds of thousands have had to migrate, primarily to the Dominican Republic to find the jobs and social services not available in Haiti. Now under the new transition government in Haiti, it seems things will not be different.

In probably the first official statement to the Dominican government, the government...

With all the problems Haiti has right now, THIS is what he’s focused on? Fix Haiti and all the mistreated Haitians might go home.
What is the expression about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Look at his resume, the new PM is a another in a long line of career bureaucrats. This is hardly what a country like Haiti needs at this stage of things.

Of course, maybe that is what the powers that be want. Haiti unfortunately appears headed back to the same old same old.

Hopefully, this move will prove fruitful....................but I do not see Haiti actually making any significant progress until 2121.....the several generations it will take to change the culture.

DR
Close the border completely.
Stop allowing trade, transportation ect.
until Mr. Claude Joseph makes a public apology.
A select group of Dominican businessmen, politicians and military generals are making millions on that border so that's not gonna happen. It happens occasionally for a day or two when they need the headlines to make themselves look tough but that's about it.

Yeh... When I read the article it immediately came across as a bit of a childish knee-jerk reactive response from the DR government to what was coming out of Haiti.

I've been clear about my view of Haitians and their whining about their woes being the fault of others... But reacting with childishness to those who are being childish doesn't help anything.

The DR has benefitted and continues to benefit, from Haitians who are in the DR — legally or illegally... And Haiti is a desperate country, and desperate people will conduct themselves in a desperate manner.

The above-quoted comment is right on target... The article is about a nothing response to a nothing attack.
