The police or politur of Sosua, Dominican Republic went around arresting the Haiti people living in Sosua on January 11, 2012.
Video of the Sosua, Dominican Republican Police driving around in trucks arresting Haiti people in Sosua. It is questionable what they are doing, I do no believe they deport them. They collect them, take them to the Police Station and then wait for them to pay big question fees to be freed.
I see this as 100 percent corruption, nothing more, just a way to make money for the local Sosua Police.
I would have no problem if they deported them, or attempted to do a sustainable solution. It is more or less just grabbing them to make life hard for them, and enriching the pockets of the local Police.
To perform a function like this, with no change is abusive.
I believe these Haiti people are legally in the country, they came across by paying maybe 3000 Pesos. They stay here, but have trouble arranging an identification card called a "Cedula," and are always being questioned by the Police.
The government of Dominican Republic is not trying to make a comprehensive plan that would work. Instead just continually harasses the Haitians.
There is no probably reason to arrest them, other than they are blacker than the local Dominican Republic Mulattoes.
