    Haiti and the Dominican Republic share a border, and an island. But the two countries are very different today: the Dominican Republic enjoys higher quality of life for many factors than Haiti. I went to this island and visited both countries, to try and understand when and how their paths diverged. And I began to learn how those differences are playing out in the present.
    Vox Borders is a new international documentary series presented by lululemon, by Emmy-nominated videojournalist Johnny Harris. For this series, Johnny is producing six 10-15 minute documentaries about different borders stories from around the world.

      VOXat least in that area Dominican set up first Because in Dominican Republic ,public hospital,has not bed for the Dominican woman because the Hatianas get there first.
      In the Dominican Republic, health care is provided free of charge whether the individual has documentation or not.
      “Here we call them ‘time bombs,’ ” said hospital director Francis Moquete.
      Of the 40 or so deliveries performed at his hospital each month, about 30 are Haitian births, Moquete said. At least four come without any previous medical care, he said.
      “This is what most worries us when they come like this - suddenly, with nothing, absolutely nothing,” he said.
      The woman has no immigration papers, like thousands of pregnant Haitian women who come to the Dominican Republic for medical care. But the armed Dominican soldiers guarding the gate dividing the two countries let most of them through.

      Vox I like the video but you missed a lot of content as far as history. Before the Africans & Spanish, the island was ruled by 5 caciques, Caonabo and others. It’d be better to know the history why the island split, the island split because of land distribution. After the whole island was freed of Spanish and French rule, there was a fight between the Mulatos, who had inherited their colonial fathers land and the children of the slaves. The root of the separation was the distribution of wealth and racism between the mulatos & black. The island name was Saint Domingue or Santo Domingo, after independence the mulatos killed even their own liberator which is Jean Jacques Dessalines. He conquered both the Spanish & French but couldn’t do anything against his own people. In 1804 all the land belong to Haiti because after the both the Spanish & French war. After 1804, the mulatos were in power first by Henry Christophe, a mulato and the islands first two rulers. Dominicans were Haitians before independence, the split happened because one mulato, DR forefather who was born in what considered now Hinche which was part of Haiti.
      He was a privilege mulato in Haiti back the Juan Pablo..
      The man behind the separation was Jose Nunez D.E. Caceres, those mulatos at the time wanted to join Grand Columbia because of the land separations, a lot of mulatos were favored it and a lot did not want to. Those mulatos called D.R the Spanish Haiti, and Jean Pierre Boyer, a mulato himself made matter worse by trying to erase the Spanish culture & practices by uniting all the Haitians under one language French, the Spanish mulatos did not like it. After Resistance, other started separate the lands because the land belonged to the government, but the Spanish mulatos did not like to separate their colonial father’s wealth, they rebelled and the government took the lands by force, but the officials of the government only distributed the lands to officials and not the people, thus the people called it occupation because the land was their fathers though they were colonial.
      They decided to group and try to join Columbia but The French mulatos says they freed the island that it is theirs. The United States at the time did not want to recognize the island as sovereign and the French put sanctions on the islands, and the Spanish side cried to the U.S whom with French decided to put more sanctions in Haiti if it did not split the islands. There was no great against the Haitians. D.R today is a result of U.S and French pressure on the French mulatos. That’s why even till this day the majority of land owners in D.R are lighter mulatos, Even in Haiti the large land owners are lighter skinned Haitians.
      The history of the split in a nutshell, check the history book for my accuracy

    I don't understand why, whenever we talk about the Haitian-Dominican issue, it has to be about the color of the skin and the victimization of the Haitian people, we are a poor country too who have to carry on with the citizens of another country just like that. A totally biased video, is not about racism, they are two different countries with their own laws where you can't cross to the other country without being properly processed, because if there is no order many delinquents will come with those people who really come to work honestly and under the country's rules.

    I have dominican friends and when I tell them this is bad, they become really mad! I point them to the irony of Dominicans being immigrants in so many countries where they no doubt expect to be treated with respect while the DR ill treats Haitians. What is the US passed a law like that to tale citizenship away retroactively? DR would be getting back hundreds of thousands

    • Piero Alberto Montas Almonte

      Is not that simple US easily can handle what you are referring to but if DR doesn't regulate the immigration they cant support the Haitians who are currently leaving in DR without papers and if you look at the numbers are already out of proportion DR is not a rich country if it doesn't regulate immigration then soon you can have two Haiti's in the Caribbean and that would be a bigger issue.

    I'm dominican, and gave you a Like, not only because quality of the video, but for pointing some aspects that need to be pointed. But also is needed to say that are too many subjectivities in this video, like people giving their opinion or how do they feel. If that's the goal of the video, kudos. But opinions doesn't necessarily reflect the whole true of the cause of the problems. Dominican Republic and Haiti has so much in common, but their leaders has not stopped to analyze how can they benefit from each other. After studying the history of Haiti it becomes obvious why the citizens doesn't trust their authorities, why they've being living in a loop of being hoped with their candidates to presidency and then being dissapointed again, and again, and again, for decades. Then you understand why they are a failure as a Estate, and that have increased the poverty of Haiti.

    In the other hand, you have many educated Haitian citizens that live in Dominican Republic, with their documents, their jobs as any other legal immigrant in any country in the world. They attend you in the hospital, in the bank, repair your appliances, drive the taxi, study with you in the university, or is simply your neighbor, etc. But, you also have millions (near two) of undocumented Haitians, poor, uneducated, some of them criminals that are trying to escape from justice, but most of them people who just is looking for a better opportunity for them and their families. And most of them have no documents, so they'r illegal, and their own country (Haiti) refused to give'm documents (they barely know their name, but have no license or any kind of id). That's one of the reasons why the government decided that "regularization program". More than the 30% of the woman giving birth in the Dominican hospitals are Haitians, not documented as legal residents, but people that came through the border to give birth IN the Dominican Republic. I didn't see that in the video. The changes in the law were made to avoid that the vast majority of Haitians that are being born here, being their parents in the condition of illegality, and because of that, being that people poor and not paying taxes, but taking advantages of living in the Dominican Republic, continue doing that. I'm not agreed with that changes in the law in the retroactive way (you shouldn't live in the limbo people who already have a condition of citizen) but surely that change was necessary (although not enough) for the future.
    You also should consider that most of those illegal Haitians living in Dominican Republic are there BECAUSE those same border guards you filmed let them pass, if they get paid. And yes, the average Haitian is black skinned, so if the guards are trying to keep away illegals (or at least if they pretend to) the common sense is to spot mainly the skin color of the first source of illegal/undocumented people. But saying that Dominicans hate Haitians because their color is stupid, because we are black, almost all of us. My father is black, both of my grandparents were black and we're proud of our selves. Here is common to see a dark skinned woman married with lighter skinned man, or vice versa. Also, many Haitians collaborated with Dominicans in their independence wars against the Haitians unification plans, just as today thousands of Haitians collaborate with Dominicans to make possible the construction, agriculture and tourism markets. Our problems as nations has not to do with color, but with competition, culture, history (Haiti invaded Dominican Republic with an army six times (6 TIMES)) religious myths and the poverty itself. As you know, nobody wants the poor and that's why United States, France and the developed countries do so little for Haiti. They know that they can't advantage of Haiti. And... your video doesn't point that either.

    worst reporter in the world. just came back from dr. there were lots of hatian people working in the resorts and stores. i went into the mountains and there for every 3 dominicans there are 1 haitian. working and living in peace. in the big the big cities, they did clear up any transient and homeless. the whole world was in haiti for over 10 years and many people with good intentions and money were there and near nothing was accomplish. is not a easy fix, and it should no be up to only dr to bail haiti out overtime they are in trouble. is funny how this idiot spends a little time in hispanola and comes out with a racist conclusion. i saw bunch of dominican, old people children, living on less than a dollar a day. they wear the same dirty beat up clothes daily. dominicans are not rich, most of us work until we died, before complaining. Dr is not different from any other country, regarding immigration. most european countries united stated, canada, mexico, japan. you need to marry a citizen to be let in. you donut even need a visa to get into Dr. there are a bunch of venezuelan refugees in Dr. now. as well as a bunch of people from all over the world living now in Dr. sorry if they can serve every person who walk across the border and demand medical and government resources

    I loved this video. I have been to both Dominican Republic and Haiti, and the funniest thing is that most of the Dominicans who discriminate the Haitians for being black, are black themselves. Even darker some times. Actually is not funny at all, its ridiculous. They have created all kind of euphemisms in order not to call themselves blacks. The last time I was there, there was this security guard I was talking to, and he was talking about some black Haitians, and I said, "Why do you call them blacks if your as black as them" and he answers that he was not black, that he was "trigueño". We Latinos call ourselves "trigueños" if we are neither blacks nor whites, like Jennifer Lopez. She is "trigueña". That security guard was more like Puff Daddy.

And a woman who worked for them was caught smuggling multiple haitian children out of the country for sex slavery. And this was the woman who was supposed to be such a great leader, and such a "warrior" for women, and "people of color".

Only if the whole world worked together at solving problems beneath the title “human race” everyone will be fine. Everyone is different but just accepting their differences is what would make this work. Sadly this would never happen but it’s worth noting I guess

How about get in there and find out why Haiti can't get its act together and other countries around it can. But he doesn't dare, because he would be called 'racist' by other liberals if he blamed black people for their own shortcomings, and it's fashionable these days to be dishonest and indirect, so that you don't hurt people's feelings.

I had no idea that the Dominican Republic were putting in these racists laws and that the border guards were actually racially profiling people today. This is insane.

    Don't look at it as a tragedy, look at it as an opportunity. If you are 10 times poorer, living, housing, labor, goods everything is probably much cheaper too. If you have an open market, even if you are discriminated and you get in later than DR traders, you should still be able to make a killing with your goods. Free trade, let it work for you.

    Here's a Massive RED Pill for all those who need Context into the situation -

    The Dominican Republic is a Multi-racial Hispanic country, with a Mixed tri-racial majority and a White and Black Minority.. Haiti on the other hand is a African ethno-state, with 95% of its population consisting of blacks, while the remaining 5% consisting of Mixed,Arabs and whites that arrived in the last century.. Culturally, Haitians are South Saharan, while Dominicans like most Hispanic countries is largely influenced by Southern Europe ... To summarize the situation, This issue has nothing to do with race, race is simply a cheap Liberal strawman being used to force us to bend the knee to globalist open border narratives, just like they are doing to Europeans Anyone who reads Dominican/Haitian history can clearly see that these countries have a history of bad blood and war. It all started, when the Haitian military leader Toussaint launched his invasion into Dominican territory in 1801, with the intent of unifying the whole island under French Rule

    this is a result of the conquests of europe. The spanish and french were ruthless in enslavement, conversion and stripping the lands to fund their country. and even in current times cause they are part of the ally forces, any treasure ships are discovered, the conquerors get to keep the treasure not the original owners.

    Haiti someday will not need this market so much. Lots of Haitian Americans are investing big dollars into Haiti. There will be a change in the years to come.

    On one side, you have people of a fair degree of European decent, and on the other you have Africans. Different outcome in fortune? Not a big surprise. This is a great example of something completely other than what they are talking about.

    So much wrong and biased on this video. Trying to impose a myopic view on a more difficult problem and just presenting anecdotes and videos that support your preconceive notion of the Dominicans relationship with Haiti is laughable. You didn't touch the historical relationship of both countries. the more than 20 years of domination, abuse and oppression the Haitians inflicted on the Dominicans, you didn't mentioned that the Dominicans are the only people who are always helping economically Haiti in every disaster they face, especially after all those first world country abandon ship an dozens of NGO steal the donations destined to help the haitian people, you didn't cover the humanitarian and economical support the Dominican government provide them. How many undocumented Haitians live in the country freely and have access to health and educational benefits. You took the behaviour and the comments of a couple Dominicans and presented those as facts and a representation of an entire country. You should be ashamed that you are passing this a journalism.

    This Documentary is completely bias! It only shows the perspective of Haiti. Yes, Throughout history Haiti has been abuse and forgotten by the French and American Government, however that doesn’t mean that Haiti social-political issues have to fall under the Dominican government. One needs to look deeper into history In order to understand the Dominican Republic- Haiti issue. Dominican Republic has always helped their neighbor country more than just “times of need” like the rest of the world does. Every country has the right to set their own policies and rules... and the Dominican Republic has been portrayed as Racist because of it!

    Restricted jus soli
    There is a trend in some countries toward restricting lex soli by requiring that at least one of the child's parents be a citizen, national or legal permanent resident of the state in question at time of the child's birth.

    Duvalierist descent
    born in Haiti to a Haitian mother or father
    born in a foreign country to Haitian parents
    born in Haiti to a foreign father; if not recognized by father, it is acceptable to be recognized by a foreign mother only if the subject is of black descent
    Duvalierist naturalization
    after five years of residency, one may apply for naturalization, yet may not practice political rights until ten years after the date of naturalization. these political rights include:
    right to participate in the election of the President of the Republic
    right to defend and serve the country
    right to be elected or appointed to public office
