The Dominican Republic is showing America and the wider world that controlling one’s borders is not rocket science.

As neighboring Haiti
descends into a state of total anarchy, Dominican authorities have implemented tough security measures aimed at preventing a potential tsunami of migrants crossing the country’s border.

NBC reported:

The border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic has been closed for days as violence in Haiti dramatically escalated following a mass prison break in Port-au-Prince. But on Thursday and Friday, Haitians were allowed into a farmer’s market in the border town of Dajabón, which has a population of 25,000 and is about 120 miles from the Haitian capital.

A robust security presence is visible, with troops manning checkpoints and razor wire topping border fences. And each day, bus after bus is seen deporting Haitians who were in the Dominican Republic illegally.

Meanwhile, the BBC
described how Dominican authorities are sending back thousands of undocumented Haitians as the crisis unravels:

Yet here at the border crossing, the Dominican authorities have been sending back hundreds of undocumented Haitians every day. Dominican soldiers unlock the wrought-iron doors, order out dozens, and send them across the Massacre River into Haiti.

Some of the immigrants are furious, shouting indignantly in Spanish and Creole. Others are resigned, holding their children or a few possessions in their arms.The message the Dominican Republic appears to be sending is no matter how bad things become at home, Haitians should not seek refuge on Dominican territory.

While the Dominican Republic successfully controls its borders, the U.S. is also bracing for a potential flow of Haitian migrants, in addition to the already millions of illegal aliens
crossing the border each year.

Earlier this week, Pentagon official Rebecca Zimmerman told Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz during a House Armed Services Committee Hearing that they were already drawing up plans to deal with a wave of mass migration.

“I think that we need to be postured appropriately for that,” Richardson said. “I have put in a request for increased capability to do exactly that. And we are ready if we need to deal with a mass migration.”
