Yesterday, we talked about the anticipated influx of Haitian immigrants to Florida in the upcoming weeks. Today, we look at a place where Haitians are already seeking refuge: across the border in the Dominican Republic. Before the earthquake, up to a million Haitians were already living in the neighboring nation ? many of them undocumented. Now thousands more are expected to cross into the Dominican Republic in the coming months.
First, we get an update live from Port-au-Prince from the BBC's Karen Allen. Then Jorge Pineda founder and editor of DominicanToday.com tells us about Haitian-Dominican relations, pre- and post-earthquake.
