    does immigration help your island?

    In response to haiti caricom member thread...ok so Dominica have more haitians than the entire oecs combined yet is still the probably the poorest...also a growing number of chinese...visiting recently you can definitely tell it is a lot busier than before...people hustling. but does the immigration really help? we are not a big island like jamaica, barbados or even st lucia (in population or economically wise), but we are becoming somewhat of a hot spot for immigrants probably due to our potential natural resources, our easy access to guadeloupe and martinique and afterall the island is underpopulated...can all you honestly say the immigrants coming to your island help it?

    i guess we have a high immigrant workforce.. so maybe it does.. maybe it doesnt.. who knows.. anybody who commits a crime should simply be deported to their place of origin..

    well i would think caricom members would get a lil more leeway than a immigrant from outside the community

    It depends very much on what type of migration we are talking about. Let's be honest, you don't want unskilled immigrants/aliens "invading" your country, taking over all the jobs and destroying your culture.

    In DR we have big problems with that.

    They do that kind of jobs for a pittance while locals demand fair wages, locals are not willing to work for misery. That's why "unskilled labourers" are always exploited by their employers. They don't complain, because even in such conditions they make more money than they could earn in their home countries.

    It's not funny at all, this is a global problem that affects us all.

    lol??. Unskilled immigrants are undesirable no matter what nationality they are, and no matter where they go, it will always be the same.

    However, today DR receives more immigrants than those who leave the country, not only Haitians and Cubans, but also Colombians, Venezuelans, Puerto Ricans, Spaniards, Italians, Lebanese, Chinese, etc. Go figure.

    About 434.343 immigrants moved to Dominican Republic in the last 3 years (not including illegal immigrants) and the number of illegal immigrants in the DR was estimated at 1.3 million people (mostly Haitians and a few Cubans) in 2009.


    And just to clarify the doubts:

    Yes, we have a lot of sex workers from the small islands. Freaky smallie women serve a purpose I guess.
