Today's news indicates the Dominican foreign ministry intends to position international outrage against the treatment of Haitians as unfair competition for tourism dollars. It's an interesting tactic. I don't think it's likely to be effective, but I admire the creativity.

At no time, by the way, have any of the NGOs and other groups behind the information campaign made any statements against the Dominican Republic. I don't recall ever seeing anything characterizing Dominicans or the government in anyway at all. THere has been significant noise about the treatment Haitians have received. I think reasonable people can understand a sense of shame in being linked to some of these reports, but that's very different than suggesting traveling to Polynesia instead of Punta Cana would somehow improve the situation.
