"It is very easy for some countries or some organizations to criticize the situation in the Dominican Republic," Pared said. "No (other) country in the world has a border with [COLOR=#366388 ! important][COLOR=#366388 ! important]Haiti[/color][/color]. No country in the world has a Haitian problem like the Dominican Republic has."

Dominicans: WE understand and how! And Mexico hassles illegal Guatemalans as well. Oh well.

I guess "migrants" is more politically correct and sounds better than "illegals".

Illegal Immigration isn't a new problem, there has always been illegal immigration. What nation they come from isn't the problem - Turkey, Iran, Mexico, Haiti, Ukraine.

It's how they get there and why.
