Santo Domingo.- Defense minister Sigfrido Pared on Tuesday said to protect the border as part of national security, the military branches will heighten controls against smuggling and other criminal activities.

He said the military works closely with the Immigration Agency to control trafficking in persons, and with Customs to halt the the smuggling of merchandise.

Pared said his department works closely with the Environment Ministry against the depredation of forests and collaborates with the Antinarcotics Agency against drug trafficking.

He said other government also take part in the work to improve the living conditions of the border region’s inhabitants by building rural housing projects, through the Border Development Agency.

The official added that Armed Forces helps communities by building schools assist people to breed rabbits, handicraft workshops, among other activities.

Pared’s announcement comes after several local media reported what they called the ‘abandonment of the border’ by Dominicans, on lack of opportunities to make a living.

Yes, if that means to build a wall - just have the government provide housing, meals, some refreshments,and the rest will be taken care of by Dominican citizens!

Back to reality!


The Haiti-DR wall

The idea originally came from the Haitians themselves when they started building a wall in order to prevent contraband from the Dominican Republic. The Haitian government wants to charge more import taxes. 

Today's Diario Libre back page editorial, Tuesday 17 June, makes light of the first statements by the country's newest legislator, Marino Vinicio Castillo, who proposed the construction of a border wall between the two countries. Editor Ines Aizpun comments that it is all nonsense. "The Berlin Wall had to be toppled, and people jump over the Mexican wall in sandals. How would we fund the construction if the DR can't bear any more loans?" asks the writer. "And it is foolish to do what others are doing on their own, and the Haitians, without known reasons, already took the initiative," she adds.

"Even, in their case, it would be good because they would employ their own people. And if they have work on that side, would not try to cross the Masacre River, let alone the wall. And the ILO (International Labor Organization), as a multilateral organization, or the international community, could monitor to ensure there is neither exploitation nor abuse, as would be the case if this were a Dominican project." 

Meanwhile, Minister of Interior and Police described the proposal for the wall as "absurd" and said that what was needed is a wall of legality. Minister of Defense Sigfrido Pared Perez has also described it as "utopian," but was in favor of it being built in certain key areas. 

Leading Church figures are divided on the issue. Monsignor Jose Dolores Grullon, bishop of San Juan de la Maguana and Elias Pina says it is a shameful idea, but Archbishop of Santiago, Ramon Benito de la Rosa y Carpio is in favor of its complete or partial construction.

The Haitians are flocking to our side as if there was a gold rush, but it's because they are confused as usual:

"Muchos de los haitianos expresaron que decidieron viajar de manera clandestina hasta República Dominicana porque en Haití corre la noticia de que los extranjeros indocumentados están siendo regulados y que sus hijos también."

The government should start a program of economic incentives to attract pioneers to reconquer the western border lands. It seems most of the border is now part of the haitian fatherland.
