The statements offered by the United States through a document on the immigration issue in the country were considered “unfortunate” by the president of the Association of Industries of the Dominican Republic (AIRD), Juan Celso Marranzini.

“Our country has been claiming out to the international community, including the United States, for help (the Haiti issue). What it is about is finding a solution and, obviously, as a power, look at this as a regional crisis and not point to something that it’s not true,” said the businessman. He added that the immigration policies that the country is adopting are correct and are being carried out as such.
