Deputies are outraged and criticize the IACHR's position on the deportation of pregnant Haitians
The line of criticism towards Haiti and the IACHR were similar from most of the party blocs that make up the Chamber of Deputies
Santo Domingo, RD.
Following the statement from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), where "concern" was expressed about the repatriation of pregnant Haitian migrants, various legislators were outraged and criticized both the international entity and the neighboring country.
"We have given Haitians everything, beyond the fact that they want to steal the country, and everyone knows that, " questioned the deputy of the Dominican Liberation Party (PLD), Danny Guzmán.
For the opposition legislator, the measure to deport Haitian women in labor has been successful and he said that the IACHR is limited to "harassing" the Dominican Republic beyond the support that the country has provided to its neighbors.
“We have given them everything, but here there are Haitians who have killed people, who have buried landowners on farms. They want to steal the influx of the rivers and everyone is quiet. For illegal Haitians, you have to have a little more of a heavy hand with that kind of thing, ”criticized Guzmán, who focused his attention on Haitian citizens.
On the other hand, Darío Zapata, border deputy of the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM), directed his criticism to the IACHR, describing the statement of the international entity as “unfair, inappropriate and disrespectful”.
“ We have been hospitable, condescending, humanitarian to the Haitian people. We have been the cloth of their tears, the modus vivendi ”, argued the legislator about what was done in the country by Haitians.
In that sense, he attacked the IACHR: “Let them stop criticizing and come to help us who have been irresponsible in the eyes of the world. Why don't they recognize the efforts, why don't they recognize the investments in health that part of the national budget goes to parturient women? ”Zapata questioned.
