Exactly. And DR's imports from T&T are less diverse than that of Jamaica, important as T&T is trying to diversify its economy beyond the petro sectors.

Well considering that Dominica is recovering from being hit by Hurricane Maria as a Category 5 in 2017, it’s understandable. 90 percent of the people lost roofs and the place was decimated. Much as been done in terms of recovery but there is much more to go. Doubt it can handle an influx of Haitians at this time.

there has not been a influx of Haitians and the reasons given by the authorities are not related to that. why can you just admit that caricom wants nothing to to with Haiti? they just took haity in becacuse how can they leave the largest black nation in the Caribbean out? but thats was about it.

In other words, you donít know anything about Dominica and what it endured and is recovering from.

Nothing but complete ignorance on your part.

It is smart behavior to regulate immigration. Clearly that is understood on virtually every islands and everywhere in the world. The reality is that it makes no sense to be overrun with migrants from Hispaniola (Kreyol or Spanish-speaking). No need to make excuses. It’s smart, period.

You have to get a new national ID when you move from EU nation to EU nation, and other paperwork has to be completed to receive healthcare, among other things. It's not like people can just show up with nothing.

And I live in an EU nation.
