With its neighbours watching how it handles its human trafficking problems, the Dominica government is now more rigidly screening Haitians coming to the island.
The deposits paid on arrival to the island are to be increased, and there are plans to impose visa restrictions on Haitians and nationals from the Dominican Republic.
Attorney General Ian Douglas said a number of planes have been sent back at the point of entry. Haitians who do not meet the requirements for entry are also being turned away.
However, it's not at the arrival end that the illegal trafficking takes place. According to the Attorney general, it's the northern town of Portsmouth where Haitians leave Dominica illegally in small boats in the hope of accessing other Caribbean countries and eventually the United States.
Some Portsmouth residents say the Haitians are being lured to Dominica with false promises that they can easily purchase a ticket from there to the US.
The authorities also have to battle another problem - a growing interest in women from the Dominican Republic said to be providing prostitution services.
UmMavV There is perceptibly a bunch to identify about this. I suppose you made some good points in features also.

as we all no dominica is a small island and there is no way that the goverment cannot stop them people fr coming in send them back dont let them land for not even a day and when they come they must have some one of good resource to pick them up in the airport so like other country if another haitian come to collect another at the airport dont u know what it is they a bringing in more people please sxm will be hard for d/can to enter now look at guadeloupe?
see how hard it is for ppl to get visa now please stop them ppl when i went to the dominican republic i had to buy a torist visa right at the airport before i could enter the place why are we letting them come in ours free with no hussle do somthing i have been to haiti too immigration is checking you out want to no what u come for so make sure these people get the same treatment as we do when we goto theirt country ok

We all are human for real but every situation have to be controlled, The french imposed visa restrictions on us to eliviate the problemWe should do the same, It may not solve them all but it will cause things to fall in line, step by step,

my 2 cents
dominica - small island between guadeloupe and martinique
dominican republic - next to haiti,
1) chinese arrived their legally,
2) if we don't crack down on the illegal migration, we will have visa restrictions imposed on us, less people will have food to eat,

I hear mention of both the Dominican Republic and Dominica. These are two different Islands. Which is the country of focus here?

they are human too
why my haitian brothers have it so bad where erver they go yhey are the only ones that really represent our true black heritage 'africa'.they should be respected for there revolt against slavery back in the late 1800s they tried to show away for the ending of slavery. haiti is a land where all is envited inlove and if they can assit another country they would ask america.when haiti was haiti they use to trade goods almost all across,the land is going through decades of crisis thanks to there government and the white man who love to see the sheading of our blood so haiti never advance like other nice places the way it should but if it did hait would of been beatiful too
