Latino gangs do not represent the Dominican diaspora

Last Tuesday, May 9, agents of the Spanish National Police dismantled the financing structure of Trinitarian, with which they obtained more than 700,000 euros. The criminal organization used hacking tools and business logistics to carry out the computer scam.

With the profits, he paid the attorneys’ fees of members in prison, paid gang membership fees, bought drugs to resell, as well as weapons for his confrontations with members of rival gangs. . Spanish national police arrested 40 people, including two hackers and 15 members of a violent group, on charges of criminal organization, bank fraud, document forgery, identity theft and money laundering.

The criminal activity of these gangs, both the Trinitarios and the Latin King or Dominicans Don’t Play, is a real problem for the communities of the Dominican diaspora in the world, as the activity of these criminal organizations is not limited to Spain, but they also exist in the United States, for example. Also work in the States or countries like the United Kingdom.

Dominicans of the Diaspora are practically all hardworking people who respect the laws of the countries where they live. They are not criminals. However, there is a popular tradition that rejects migrants, no matter how deep their roots.

Latino gangs do not represent the dominican diaspora

The presence of these criminal gangs, precisely, a part of the population assimilates the crimes of these organizations with all Dominicans, and this is a lie, in addition to unfair.

Added to this situation is the anti-immigration message of extreme right-wing populist parties who seek to unite violence with all Dominicans in a single concept. In the current European socioeconomic landscape where work is scarce, wages are low and housing prices are skyrocketing, these messages pervade the population. Social networks have become tools to poison citizens against immigrants. If a Dominican belongs to Latino gangs, the propaganda organs of these extreme right-wing organizations and parties refer to the criminal attitude of some people in general among the entire Dominican community.

However, the reality is that the Dominican Republic’s diaspora in Europe and the United States is characterized by the exact opposite by forming peaceful communities that go out of their way to work and be able to support their families, which both There are in destination countries like those who still live in the Dominican Republic.

This phenomenon of criminal gangs greatly worries President Luis Abinader, as it poses a serious threat to its commitment to the diaspora and Dominican families living outside the country. The current head of state is implementing a series of measures aimed at meeting historical demands of citizens of the diaspora that were not met by previous PLD administrations.

Abinader’s commitment to the Indian diaspora is absolute and he has shown it ever since he entered the front lines of politics. His involvement in the foundation and promotion of the Association of Overseas Dominicans (ADU), among others, demonstrates his commitment and loyalty to Luis Abinader. For example, during the ADU’s period of operation, the problem with criminal gangs in Spain was very residual as the organization’s activity focused on giving Dominican families the necessary outlet to move on with their lives and look to the future. Thank you for their work, which is a true symbol of the Dominican Republic and what each member of the diaspora transmits.
