Depite Wayne Monroe nan Bahamas panse li jwenn solisyon an pou pwoblèm ilegal ke peyi l ape fè fas jodi a. Li pwopoze ke gouvènman bahameyen an kòmanse tòtire ak touye moun yo k ap viv la san papye, imigran ayisyen espesyalman. Avoka bahameyen sa reyalize ke tòtire ak touye imigran ilegal, an patikilye Ayisyen, se yon mezi piman bouk; sepandan, li panse li pral sèvi kòm yon prevantif bay moun ki panse pou dezobeyi lalwa imigrasyon bahameyen. Dapre depite Monroe, "Si imigran ilegal, patikilyèman Ayisyen, te konnen nou te ap tòtire ak touye yo, yo pa ta vini"
Dapre dènye figi, apeprè 50,000 imigran ayisyen kounye a ap viv nan Bahamas. Wayne R. Munroe se Prezidan aktyèl ak pase nan Bahamas Bar Association. Yo te admèt li nan Bar nan Angletè ak Wales nan 1990. Li posede kabinè avoka Munroe & Associates, epi li pi popilè deyò nan Bahamas paske li te reprezante Anna Nicole Smith.
Deputy Monroe proposes torture, death to illegal Haitian immigrants
Deputy Wayne Monroe of Bahamas thinks he has the solution for the current illegal problem faced by his country. He proposes that the Bahamian government starts torturing and killing the people living there without paper, specially illegal Haitian immigrants. The Bahamian lawyer realizes that torturing and killing illegal immigrants, Haitians in particular, would be a harsh measure; however, he thinks it will serve as a deterrent to those thinking about breaking the Bahamian immigration law. According to Deputy Monroe, "If illegal immigrants, particularly Haitians knew we were going to torture and kill them, they would not come"
According to the latest figure, close to 50,000 Haitian immigrants are currently living in the Bahamas. Wayne R. Munroe is the current and past President of the Bahamas Bar Association and was admitted to the Bar of England and Wales in 1990. He owns the firm of Munroe & Associates, and is most famous outside of the Bahamas for his representation of Anna Nicole Smith.
Here is a picture of a Makeshift camps "Pak Kado" in Anse-à-Pitre for the Deported people coming from the Dominican Republic.
On August 15 and 16, 2015, the Support Group for Returnees and Refugees (GARR) had visited different sites at Anse-à-Pitre which have been built to accommodate the future returnees, our compatriots, from the Dominican Republic. The purpose of their visit was to gather information on the facilities and infrastructure that have been created for the deportees. "Pak Kado" is a camp at the foot of a hill where over 115 repatriated families from the D.R are living since July 17, 2015. The makeshift camps have been built here out of cardboard and straw. There is no regular supply of clean water and food. In similar condition at "Tête à l'eau", a second camp located about 3 kilometers from 'Pak Kado', another 140 families live. People here are dying of hunger. The members of an organization sometime visit these camps and help them with little food. That's all.
Here is a picture of Haiti's Reception Center for Returnees at Malpasse following mass deportation of undocumented Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent.
Malpasse situated in the Ouest Department of Haiti, is one of the four land connections between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. To combat problem of statelessness of the Haitians deported from the Dominican Republic, the Haitian government reportedly set up reception centres at Malpasse. But these so called reception centres are far from capable to accommodate the deported people. The reception centre at Malpasse is nothing more than a flimsy plywood hut in the midst of desert of white gravel. The government had declared in June that the reception centres were ready to welcome the Haitians, but the reality of the situation is rather miserable. The migrants are in a devastated, homeless and stateless condition in Haiti.
Here is a picture of the Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Timothy Harris on the expulsion of Dominicans of Haitian descent in DR
Prime Minister of St Kitts on Dominicans of Haitian Descent. On Thursday, July 2nd, 2015, during his first CARICOM Heads of Government meeting, Timothy Harris, the newly-elected Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis has told the Dominican Republic authority to cease its plans that could lead to any cause of expulsion of the Dominican nationals of Haitian descent and render them stateless. He has called for the extension of deadline for registering eligible undocumented immigrants to residency status. The people of St Kitts and Nevis share the pain and anguish of the unfortunate Dominicans of Haitian descent and stand by them into the present assault to their human rights and dignity. In his speech he has also stated that the success of the theme of CARICOM in securing vibrant societies and resilient economies depends on its member states in carrying their unity forward.
Let's call a dog a dog. What the Dominicans are currently doing to Haitians and Dominican-Haitians is not the behavior of a civilized society. At least we can go along with the statement of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who described the behaviors of the Dominican government as illegal, immoral and racist.
The Dominican Republic (DR) is getting ready to expel thousands upon thousands of Haitian migrants and their natural-born progeny as the date for implementation of the new immigration law draws near. Human rights organizations claim the law is based on race-hatred of darker-skinned Haitians.
DR President Medina states no mass deportations will happen and 210,000-plus Haitians have registered for the regularization program. Meanwhile dozens of buses stand poised to transport deportees to Haiti's border.
NYC Mayor de Blasio denounces DR Haitian Migrant Deportation Plan
The Dominican Republic's (DR) plan to deport Dominican-born Haitians has drawn the ire of NYC Mayor de Blasio. He describes the DR's intentions as "illegal, immoral, and racist".
In Washington D.C. the Association of Haitian Professionals (AHP) are organizing a protest at the
Embassy of the Dominican Republic, where they will call for ending deportations. AHP says Dominicans target anyone, who possess "Haitian facial features" and commit violent acts on them.
Here is a picture of a family in Malpasse who just arrived with children> They don't know anyone in Haiti. This family is among the newly-deported Dominican-Haitians
First Deportees arrive in Malpasse: Martelly denies their existence
Fond Bayard school in Malpasse, near the Dominican-Haitian border, has been converted into a shelter for Dominican-Haitians, recently deported by the DR.
A significant number of deportees are Dominican-born Haitians, descendants of Haitian migrants. According to the Dominican Constitution they have legal status. But a Constitutional Court ruling says they must leave since they don't have the proper papers for citizenship status.
Haitian President Martelly has turned his back on the deportees, ensuring they remain stateless.
Here is a long list of haitians in line applying just before the deadline to avoid deportation from Dominican Republic.
Dominican Expected To Begin Deporting Undocumented Immigrants
As the deadline for registering the adjustment of residential status has expired on June 17, 2015, the Dominican Republic is expected to begin deporting an estimated susceptible 500,000 undocumented immigrants of whom most are Haitians or Dominicans of Haitian descent. The D.R. government considers this a legitimate process to deal with the undocumented immigrants while ignoring the distinct characteristics of them. There are two distinct Haitian populations in the D.R-- Haitian immigrants engaged in low wage work and Dominicans of Haitian descent who were born in the country as citizen until a controversial court ruling unlawfully denationalized them in 2013. The majority of them do not speak Creole, know no one in Haiti, but would be uprooted from the place which they have known so far as their home in the Dominican Republic. Historically, many Dominican nationalists, by labeling its darker-skinned inhabitants as 'immigrants', have advocated to expel them from the country.
If you think you have seen enough about Haitian behaviors, you have not. What you are looking at is what the Haitian government calls Haiti Reception centers for Returnees from Dominican Republic. Some how, the Haitian government expects to receive about 400,000 people in this area. This preparation has been ongoing for over one month now when the government said that this site is subject to welcome our compatriots.
Marie Yolène Gilles, the Programme Manager of the National Network Defenses of Human Rights (RNDDH) has revealed in a statement on June 18, 2015, that no structure has yet been built and nothing concrete step has been taken on the Haitian side of Dominican border other than a poster indicating the proposed site of the shelters on a vast desert. Although since the late May, the government had confidently continued its announcement about two welcome centers for the returnees, the GAAR (Groupe d'Appui aux Rapatriés & Réfugiés) had only traced two trucks, one tractor, two generators and two guards and a placard indicating : Welcome" on the 3 project sites located in Malpasse.
The Dominican Republic manages to remove the citizenship of up over 200,000 of its people and got away with it. They are Dominicans of Haitian descent.
On June 17, the deadline for registering Haitian migrants on official migration status in the Dominican Republic has expired. Now about 500,000 Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent are facing threats of forcible removal. The Dominican Ministry of the Interior has confirmed that those who have failed to fulfill the conditions of residency status will be made to leave the country. The stand of the Dominican government, particularly in relation to the 'Dominicans of Haitian descent' is very strong. From the ongoing situation, it appears that they have initially succeeded to term them as illegal immigrants in their country of birth. An estimated number of 200,000 people of first-generation Haitian residents were born and raised in the D.R who know themselves as Dominicans. They are now being told that they are Haitian and subject to forcible expulsion from a place they call home and to a country where they know no-one.
Here is a picture where several Dominican Haitians are waiting for regularization of their papers on the Dominican Republic to avoid deportation.
On 18th June, a group of about 1,500 sugarcane workers filed for an injunction in the Superior Administrative Court against the Ministries of Interior and Police, Foreign Affairs, the Presidency, the Central Electoral Board and Immigration Agency to prevent their deportation along with their families.
They prayed to obtain recognition as government contractors. The Court's 1st Civil Chamber has been scheduled for a hearing on July 25th.
There were thousands of confused Haitian undocumented immigrants, including elderly, babies and children were seen among those spending sleepless nights, lined up outside the government regularization processing offices to establish their right to remain in the Dominican Republic or otherwise face deportation.
