Gee, where have we seen this story before?

So Dominican Republic is building a wall to keep out illegal Haitian immigrants. For those that don't know, the DR and Haiti are on the same island of Hispanola. Half is DR, the other half is Haiti.

The DR, while not all rainbows and unicorns, has a decent tourist economy and doing ok. On the other hand, Haiti is a textbook example of what most would call a sh*thole. Completely ironic since half the island has figured out to attract resorts and tourist while the other half can't seem to just copy what works.

Anyway, much like the US, the DR gets a ton of illegal Haitian immigrants. I guess the DR is being over run so they decided to do what most people with functioning brain cells would do in this situation. Build a wall...

The people of Haiti have an average IQ of around 67, which is considered to be mental retardation.

They generally do work. Nothing is 100% effective, but if it is 99% effective it is better than no wall....

I mean airbags aren't 100% effective, therefore let's remove airbags from cars. Condoms aren't 100% effective, therefore you shouldn't use one to prevent pregnancy or STDs. Good lord, people and their lack of logic and critical thinking.

Don't post on a public forum if you can't handle me asking about your stupidity.

You obviously have ZERO understanding of Haiti/DR relations. I come from PR and to me the whole thing between DR and Haiti would be funny if it really wasn't so depressing and it all dates back to the colonization of the Caribbean by Europe.

Dominicans wouldn't like to have you know that they traffic the hell out of Haitian women and children for hard labor, domestic labor and forced sex trade purposes that includes minors. Dominicans wouldn't also want you to know that they get on boats in drove to PR to look for a better life, then complain about racism in PR while they themselves been master racist against poor Haitians.

We have a decent sized population of Haitians in PR and I swear they don't cause any trouble at all. They come, they work, their are decent hard working overly nice people, I cant say that of many Dominicans that come to PR.

Dominicans are weird IMO and is mainly due the teachings of self hatred that are engrained in their society during the time of Trujillo dictatorship, who was a very charismatic/personality cult type leader who many in the DR adore still to this day. Trujillo a black dude who would wear ridiculous amount of make up to appear white was basically an KKK representative during his time as a dictator. He enacted anti-afro dominicans/haitians policies from the get go which cause the first big wave of Dominicans to leave to the US and Puerto Rico. The legacy of hatred that started with Trujillo is alive and well in the DR to this day. On the cultural side just google a picture of Sammy Sosa from 1990 and one from now and you will now what I mean.

Regarding your comment about why Haiti cant copy what DR does to improve their economy is again another fail on your part to understand the result of colonization. French colonies for the most part assumed total control of their territories, while English and Spaniard territories/colonies let people govern themselves for the most part as long as they pledge loyalty to the throne and paid their dues. That ease of control let to the development of the population of those nations and their economies. In many French colonies the locals we just seeing as labor and any skilled jobs were occupied by French nationals. You can see that history repeating in many former French colonies in the Caribbean and Africa and to make matter worst the subsequent governments that have come after the independence of the colonies just replicate what the French colonizers did for the most part which is why you see so many genocide, killings and tribal type governments that rise and fall in those countries.
