iciHaiti - DR : Tens of thousands of Haitian workers in an irregular situation risk deportation in January 2022
Following the new measures taken by the Dominican Republic to strictly enforce migration laws, the Support Group for Repatriates and Refugees (GARR), the Jesuit Migrant Service (SJM-Haiti) and the Jeannot Succès Border Network (RFJS), organizations that campaign for the respect and defense of migrants' rights, draws to the attention of the Haitian State to the fate of thousands of migrant workers in an irregular situation.

According to these new provisions, all foreigners in an irregular migratory situation will be repatriated; in case they are not, they will no longer be able to work because Dominican companies are prohibited from not hiring them under penalty of severe penalties.

Faced with these eventualities, GARR, SJM-Haiti and RFJS invite the Haitian State to quickly find a formula with its Dominican counterpart in order to facilitate the regularization of Haitian migrants. If the migration situation of these people is not regularized within the 3-month period granted to them https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35047-haiti-flash-dr-90-day-ultimatum-for-haitian-workers.html they will no longer be able to work and will be repatriated to Haiti.

In addition, these organizations join the voice of the Embassy of Haiti in asking the Dominican Republic to respect the Protocol signed by the two countries on repatriation mechanisms; to respect the rights of returnees and to treat them with dignity; and also to adopt concrete measures so that migrants can have the possibility of taking their personal effects when they are repatriated.
