Dominican Republic send 88 more to Haiti; total now 357

NEIBA, Dominican Republic (AP) — Authorities in the Dominican Republic rounded up 88 more people and sent them to Haiti, two migrant advocates said Tuesday.

Tobias Metzner, a Haiti-based counter-trafficking program manager for the International Organization for Migration, said troops took the Haitians and others of Haitian descent to the border Tuesday night. The Rev. Antoine Lissaint of Haiti’s Jesuit Refugee and Migrant Organization said separately that the 88 were taken to the southern border town of Jimani.
