Delegation of Dominican students tours cut short after money for DC trip is stolen
PASSAIC, N.J. — A dozen high school students from the Dominican Republic visited New Jersey instead of Washington after their money for a class trip was stolen.
Students from the Dominican Republic Juvenile Parliament told The Record newspaper a Dominican government official who arranged their visas allegedly pocketed the $2,000 each student paid.
A message left for the consulate of the Dominican Republic in New York was not immediately returned.
Instead of visiting Washington’s attractions, the students were taken in by Dominican families in New York and New Jersey and given a tour of government buildings in Passaic.
A speech on Third World development that the group was supposed to deliver at the Organization of American States in Washington was read before the Passaic County freeholders instead.
