Here is 10 laws, sent to congress under the first Pinera administration, that they want to activate again:

I'm giggling just by thinking about these proposals. All ten look very solid, at least in theory.

Read the comments at the bottom. None of them seem very happy with the current immigration situation, and most the hate is direct squarely at the Haitens. Right or Wrong, there is a racial powder keg building and getting ready to blow in this country, if they don't fix the immigration situation.
Yup, and the backlash when it comes will probably affect all extanjeros.

So who exactly makes real decisions when deciding and imposing visa requirements? The executive branch? The Prez itself?

Most laws here are drafted in such a way that they can be (re)interpreted arbitrarily to suit the circumstances. In the case of the Haitian influx, I would guess that verbal instructions were issued from Bachelet's trusted inner circle, especially Paula Narváez and Mahmud Aleuy, then diffused outwards through the Interior Ministry and downwards through the PDI to relax entry requirements. For all the talk of Decentralization, Chile is very tightly controlled from Santiago.

There is nothing in the law to stop them from changing immigration policy at will. Nothing too unusual there, but the questions remain; Why? and Why Now?

The Dominga mining project was squashed in the same way incidentally: the "word" came down from above and the local Intendente and SEREMIs voted accordingly. Más arreglada que mesa de cumpleaños

So there was a bit of debate about how pinera did with the poor. In fact one of the communist party members lashed out at the very idea that the poor voted for pinera.

Well, they went and studied it.

He won in 17 out of 20 of the poorest areas.

The implications for the future of the far left in chile is pretty devestating. It kills their whole theme for existing.

So now that Mr Pinera is in power again, are those Haitianos sent back to their origins? Or does he have to take over from Bachelet legacy?

Batch-o-shit as a lame duck declared the other day after the inaction of both the past Piñera and then her last administration who will be the Puerto de Gran Escala. It will be San Antonio though the whispers say Piñera secretly wanted ValPO(Shit). San Antonio I recall was one of the only areas in the V Region to vote Gullier probably because of the Ley de Pesca and the perception that he was a typical voter base pussy (Valpo over San Antonio which is just Valpo's backyard, etc.).

I didn't purchase the article (dated 6/2016), but it contains an advisory that the Government of Chile take upon itself the "delivery" of the needed breakwaters, while allowing concession(s) to build the terminals. Sounds like there will several steps to the formal decision making and if Pinera wants he can try restructuring it to his liking.

Looks huge. Would Valpo have been somehow better?

No, Valpo has no space for this not to mention the expansion of rail and cargo truck routes in and out. It was always a decision of logic vs. traditional vote/political influence despite San Antonio for years being the most important cargo port of Chile.

Some science was done in Spain and, of course, "the probabilities [of corruption] increase when the same party stays in government more years".

Britkid, that's why I said that voting for Piñera was good even if you're left-leaning.
The goal was to remove NM from power before they grow deep roots.

I am not sure that one would need AI to predict the possibility of corruption. There is a much older expression that conveys the idea:
“Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.”
....that's why I said that voting for Piñera was good even if you're left-leaning.

And you suggest that replacing the NM with Piñera was a good move?

I am not too sure about that:
