Santo Domingo.- Although their number is still unknown, many of the 329 Haitian inmates who broke out from a prison near the capital Port-au-Prince Sunday managed to sneak across the border into Dominican territory, military and police officials revealed Thursday.

The mass escape has prompted Dominican military and police, already under heightened alert, to launch a major operation to capture the fugitives.

Citing intelligence reports, Dominican police chief Manuel Castro and Army commander Ruben Dario Paulino said part of the group that escaped from Croix-des- Bouquets prison crossed into Dominican territory through several points of the border, despite bolstered surveillance.

Castro revealed expanded search areas to locate and apprehend the fugitives, including Santo Domingo. "The task of intelligence already identified areas to conduct searches, raids and execute arrests warrants against some of the fugitives.”

So let me get this straight, this guy is saying they didn't do their job?.

So even though they "bolstered surveillance" they allowed to Haitians to cross?.

Where did these 2 idiots thought the Haitians where going, to the moon?.

Medina should fire both immediately.

roketita, you see, DOMINICANS are the ones allowing Haitians to cross the border........

Do you get it now, kid?.............of course not.

sorry, you will be as dissapointed with the wall....take a look at this poor excuse for an army commander.

From: Dominican Republic, Trump is President & black Caucus can't save the illegal Haitians. Told you Hillary would not win. You cannot steal citizenship you're not entitled to

Another reason to build that border wall pronto!

They patroled the border cities. What about the thousands of kilometers with no surveillance or wall... we're never going to keep Haitians from coming in. For every Dominican that leaves 8 haitian move in and claim citizenship because they say they've been there since colonialism. Dominican people will no longer look like me and my family but like Sonia Pierres and her clan of posers. We're not a sovereign country, we're The Dominican Republic of Haiti...
