Although that the gesture by President Leonel was kind; let us use our political mind. I believe that the gesture achieved a political strategy goal that no one seem to think about (including President Preval).

The primary goal of the "good faith gesture"was to stop a flood of black and poor Haitians crossing the border into the Dominican Republic.

There are a million Haitians living in DR. The population of DR is about 10 million.

That means 10% of the population is comprised of Haitians.

The Dominicans feel that there are enough Haitians to work the land and in construction at a cheap rate. They do not want any more Haitians at this time. As a matter of fact they only wanted about 100,000 male workers to work in the sugar cane industry and in construction.

They never wanted whole families to live there.

Remember that the Dominicans always wanted to be white.

They want to be like the rest of Latin America (majority caucasian).

DR is the only latin american country with a majority black/mix population.

I always said this and it is the truth; if Haitians were white but poor, the Dominican would welcome them with hug, kisses, and flowers while crossing the border.

One of the reasons that DR progressed is because Trujillo welcomed and gave incentives to Europeans and Jews after World War 2 to come and live in DR. Trujillo was not thinking about DR progressing at the time. He wanted to whiten DR. In effect, he gave orders to slaughter 30,000 Haitians living near the border in 1937. Ironically, Trujillo grandmother was Haitian.

He used to put on white powder mascara to hide his traits of blackness.
