What more do Haitians want from Dominicans ?
Since Spain ceded to France the western part of the island on June 3, 1777 in Madrid Aranjuez community by the Count of Floridablanca representing King Carlos III and the Marquis de Ossun on behalf of the French king Louis XVI.
That same day, there was a limited border that currently exists today, this border that has prevented the passage of generations of Haitians who cherish in their minds the idea that this whole island belongs to them.
Dominicans endure 22 years of total domination of Haitians, product of the idea that the island is "one and indivisible" is taught very early to Haitians to try to regain something that does not belong to them.
Children of Duarte, Sanchez and Mella, have carried for years in our bosom the sons of Toussaint Louverture, we have fed them given them our food and drank our water.
We have allowed them to be born born, grow, study and work.
Here they are treated better than in their own country, they are free to do whatever they want, enjoy the freedom and democracy of our nation.
Those born here, use our hospitals, are formed in schools and many of them acquire a profession, studying at our universities.
But all these things we give to the Haitians, they forget them, and denounce us as racist and xenophobia in every corner of the world.
They make them for the sole purpose of causing harm because they can not invade again, because they know that our military forces are superior to theirs.
The damage that they want to cause is to claim a nationality that does not belong to them. This is the end of their authorities to take advantage of the exodus of millions that come and breed here in our land.
I think the only thing that is missing from the Haitians from us Dominicans, it is our nationality, and they are trying everything for that to occur calling on the international community to falsely condemn us.
That attitude of Haitians has awoken a nationalism that has been asleep for many Dominicans, and watch out for the blood that does not reach the Artibonite River.
