Haitians Deported from Dominican Republic to be Labeled "Enemy Combatants" if Captured During Coming Conflict: Reports

Appointment of Kelly signals preparation for war. DoD
US President Donald Trump's appointment of General John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff was declared "beneficial to the Dominican Republic" by experts in geopolitics due to the fact that Mr. Kelly has in the past defended Dominican immigration measures before the US Congress.

As Abreu Report previously reported, the sitting Dominican government of Danilo Medina recently extended legal status for 250,000 Haitians whose deportation the courts mandated started years ago, setting the stage for a constitutional crisis that may lead to a coup d'etat or a civil war that plunges the Caribbean into chaos as hundreds of thousands of refugees threaten to worsen the crisis in bankrupt Puerto Rico, directly affecting US interests, while also flooding the tiny UK islands of Turks & Caicos in such a dramatic way that the native population would be quickly overtaken, paving the way for a confrontation with the United Kingdom that could see the Dominican Republic taking on Her Majesty's forces in a conflict making the Falklands War look like a blood-free conflict by comparison.

There is little the elected leadership of the Dominican Republic and the United States can do to prevent the Dominican people from rising up in defense of the courts save for the government deporting every Haitian national residing on Dominican soil without proper status. President Trump's appointment of Gen. Kelly signaled to the Dominican Republic that it would help make sure people were deported peacefully, as the United States currently has 50,000 Haitian nationals slated to be sent back to Haiti.

As Haiti will be receiving roughly 300,000 people, many fluent in Spanish, fears are that it could provoke an even more absolute collapse of leadership in Port-au-Prince, with warring militias depopulating the country and thereby forcing the Dominican Republic to declare martial law and a state of emergency near the tense border, where Dominican troops on patrol are already regularly attacked by Haitian gangs seeking to steal their weapons in order to pillage and plunder in lawless parts of the island.

There are reports that the Dominican military will have no choice but to label every person given a deportation or exit order from Dominican soil as a potential enemy combatant in the event that Haiti collapses absolutely after the coming deportee deluge, since returnees pose grave infiltration threats with their language skills and knowledge of the terrain.

Similar to how the Netherlands issues an Article 50 to people at risk of residing illegally in the country, placing them in Ministry of Defense detention, the Dominican government appears ready to create a similar database for Haitian nationals fluent in Spanish who during a war represent the risk of being enemy combatants. 

There is little wartime precedent in Dominican law for dealing with an enemy population of individuals out of uniform, who by all purposes can be classified as spies, and since the Dominican Republic does not employ capital punishment nor possess the resources to intern large numbers of spies, it may very well be the case that Haitian enemy combatants found on Dominican soil when the war breaks out could simply be executed on the spot in accordance with the laws of war. 

At this stage in history, the quick construction of a wall on the Dominico-Haitian border may be the only thing that prevents bloodletting at a scale not seen in the Americas since Europeans discovered a route to the continent and began exterminating the native population.
