The criminal fiasco aimed at deporting some 300,000 Haitians is starting to backfire on the Dominican Republic, but, no matter what, there will be no really satisfactory solution.
A delegation flew from Santo Domingo to Port-au-Prince today, hoping to meet with members of the Haitian government. The doors were closed. No one wants to talk wih them.
International pressure is accelerating.
Martelly has his balls in a vice.
He should have let International Community handle this. It is too big for Haiti.
We need allies.
Perhaps the Dominicans will ask him to refund the bribes.
Even if the SOCIAL CLEANSING is stopped, what follows will only make more unbearable for people of Haitian heritage – even if this dates back to 1930!
The Dominicans may be forced to stop their crime but those who remain in the Dominican Republic will experience an accelerating level of bias and abuse. It has been bad, up until now. It will become worse.
We will see assaults.
We will see lynching’s.
We will see the Dominican bureaucracy move at an even slower pace, than before, to legalese rightful claims of the dispossessed.
Although Haiti is the Dominican Republic’s largest market, Dominican prejudice remains at an unbelievable, government sponsored level.
We are not optimistic.
And, while the crap was hitting the fan, and thousands crowded the border crossings, Martelly sang in New York. Sort of like “Nero fiddling while Rome burned.”
The only fiddling Martelly and Sophia understand is financial.
