It helps though if a country is not bound by legalities. The Dominican Republic is in a perilous situation, it shares the island of Hispaniola with the failed state of Haiti. Consequently the Dominican Republic is in danger of being overrun by mass illegal immigration from desperate migrants seeking work and welfare. Haiti is one of the worst governed nations in the world, perhaps the worst. Of course, Haitians are responsible for their terrible situation. Haitians executed both their White overlords, then their mulatto rulers, the results of which were the routine collapse of ruling governments. Only the intervention of the United States Marine Corps, effectively a military run state for a number of years, then governance by a competent but brutal rule by the infamous Papa Doc Duvalier, then Baby Doc Duvalier. But once democracy was brought to the Haitian part of Hispaniola, it became a permanently failed black state.
The Very White President Luis Rodolfo Abinader Corona
The situation of mass illegal immigration was unacceptable to Dominican people, and since Dominican politicians don’t hate their own nation and people, nor want them replaced with a hostile racial, ethnic, and linguistic population, the Dominican leaders have reacted, and legal niceties be damned.
The Globohomo press is outraged and shameless baby waving has ensued.
Impoverished Haiti, beset by spreading gang violence, worsening hunger and now cholera, is hemorrhaging refugees.
Its nearest neighbor is responding by tightening its border and stepping up deportations…
The Dominican Republic, with a population of 11 million, is home to more than 500,000 Haitians. The country, more stable and prosperous than its neighbor, deported more than 170,000 people in 2022, government data shows; most were Haitians. That was more than double the number from the year before.
In January, authorities picked up the pace, removing 23,500 more.
“Never before has any government done so much to protect the integrity of the Dominican Republic along its border,” President Luis Abinader told the country’s National Assembly last month, to applause.Dominican Republic Sending Children, Pregnant Migrants Back To Haiti, By Widlore Mérancourt and Amanda Coletta, WaPo, March 16, 2023
The Dominican government is apparently violating it’s own laws and certain international treaties and conventions, but the Dominican government cares for for the survival of the Dominican people and nation.
They have included hundreds of pregnant women and unaccompanied minors, advocates say, in apparent violation of international conventions and bilateral agreements…
It’s disproportionately affecting “older women, pregnant women, postpartum women and children,” she said, even though they’re supposed to be protected from deportation by Dominican legislation, binational agreements and international conventions.
And the usual claims of racism are involved, as though Dominicans care about such attacks. Dominicans still respect Whiteness and prefer White presenting people, such as Sammy Sosa.
Most of the children had been detained, he says, sometimes for longer than a week. Some had been separated from their parents. Among the deportees, Fortuné says, was a 16-year-old Black girl who had been stopped on her way to school, despite being a Dominican citizen — evidence, he says, of “a racism component” in the removals.
Dominicans Prefer White Over Black, Especially If It Involves Haitians
Besides a political class that does not hate the nation it rules, the Dominican Republic also benefits from the ability to ignore any inconvenient legalities when it comes to deportations, similar to 1950s America, when deportation law was clear and unencumbered by any appeals process. Essentially what President President Luis Abinader is doing today is what President Dwight D. Eisenhower did with Operation Wetback, by sending law enforcement to identify, arrest, and deport illegal aliens without interference by the courts.
And it also highlights the problems that President Trump or President DeSantis will have in the next Presidential term. While both are running on campaigns of mass deportations, that will not be possible in the current legal climate, unless one is willing to go full Andrew Jackson. Instead, the legal regime needs to be changed to enable mass deportations.
Now, there are things a President could do. Force Immigration Judges (IJ) in the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) to actually do their jobs. That means instead of endlessly delaying hearings, actually force illegal aliens and their attorneys to present their case on the first day in court and make a decision that same day. That means the next Administration needs to actually supervise the work of the EOIR and force IJs to do their jobs. There was a half-hearted attempt under Jeff Sessions, but even that was ineffectual. Instead of minor increases in work performance and nice court-like work settings, judges need to be assigned directly to the border, to detention facilities, and to complete cases assigned to them expeditiously.
However, that will not be enough, without an expanded Expedited Removal legal framework, removing 30 million or so illegal aliens will take too long. For the United States to act like the Dominican Republic, a new legal regime of immediate deportation needs to be established, as it existed in the 1950s.
