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.
