When asked, some migrants explained paying between three and four thousand pesos to Haitian smugglers to take themon foot or by motorcycle in the province of Valverde and other localities of Northwest and Cibao.
The authorities of CESFRONT handed over the Haitians, to the immigration authorities at the border post of Dajabón, which have repatriated them to Haiti.
Let us recall that for the month of January alone, more than 20,000 of our countrymen have been intercepted and repatriated to the country http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-12996-haiti-security-more-than-20-000-haitians-repatriated-to-haiti-in-20-days.html . Considering that the figures released now, only concern the post of Dajabón and that the CESFRONT conducts patrols all along the north-south border (not include arrests made by the Dominican army), it is feared that the number of illegal attempts of Haitian nationals to enter the Dominican territory during the month of February is still very high.
