Nearly 10,000 soldiers from the Dominican Republic have been deployed to the border it shares with Haiti to contain undocumented migrants’ illegal trafficking.

The strong military presence at the border that separates the French-Speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nation from the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola was ordered by the Minister of Defense from the Dominican Republic,  Lieutenant General Carlos Luciano Díaz Morfa, who explained that the armed forces manage and improve actions to control the illicit trafficking of people, goods and drugs.
