She feared getting picked up and expelled by the army as the Dominican Republic tightened its immigrations laws.
So in June she left on her own and brought her three children to a barren expanse of land called Parc Cadeau 1, now home to more than 500 people.


Life miserable for Haitians expelled from Dominican Republic


They're your people Haiti; it's on YOU to do the right things.

I just hope this doesn't become our problem. We don't need any more.

I was thinking that the illegals here might learn something from this. Maybe it will encourage them to plan ahead and be ready to go to a welcoming place.

Having lived in the D.R. some years ago and seeing the way some Dominican's treated some Haitians, it's unfortunate. Some Dominicans are prejudice just as some Americans and others are. Unfortunately, Dominicans are rather aggressive in their pursuit of Haitians in their country. History also is a big reason as to why they are at odds with one another.

Def NOT our problem. Tho t0 be fair; the Dominican Republic wanting go back almost 90 years when talking about people who WERE "legal" by the laws of that time I DO have a problem with.

What do you mean "our" problem? If you are using "our" in the context of the Unites states, I ask these questions? Does not this country have a reputation for meddling in other countries affairs? What makes this any different? Was the tsunami not "our" problem either?

Haiti is slowly but surely getting better. Hope to see it really rise. The Dominican Republic can't handle the high levels of immigration from Haiti though.

Doubt it. The U.S. would rather allow Muslims from the Middle East than poor Haitians, the vast majority of whom are Catholic. Hmmmmmm.

Agreed and Muslim Somalis; who are Black so it ain't racism why more Haitians aren't allowed in the US.

What are you talking about? Both groups are accepted in the U.S. in small numbers. The U.S. has long preferred Middle Easterners.

Considering that we end up supporting both legal and illegal plus refugees, we don't need to bring in any new legal and need to expel any that already here illegally.

If they can't come in legally with a job, they don't need to come. We considered adopting a child through foreign adoption at one point. A little girl with Down syndrome from India. There was so much paperwork involved, we had to prove we had the finances, insurance, and many other things to show that the child would not be a burden to taxpayers. Because of all the costs, and they kept mounting up, we decided not to go ahead with the adoption. The child was in India and there were so many palms to grease............. Sad. Even sadder when you realize that since that time, we have been taxed to provide for illegal aliens and their anchors.
