Dominicans can drive in Puerto Rico, regardless of immigration status
Santo Domingo.- In the next few days Dominicans living in Puerto Rico will have the right to apply for a license to drive motor vehicles, even if they don’t have an immigrant status, Puerto Rico governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla announced Thursday.
In a speech to mark the 61st anniversary of Puerto Rico’s Constitution, García asked Dominican Foreign minister Carlos Morales, who was present at the event, to apprise president Danilo Medina of the Puerto Rican people’s decision to grant this distinction to the Dominican community on the island.
“I ask Foreign Minister Carlos Morales to please, on the part of the Puerto Rican people, to inform the President of the sister Dominican Republic, Mr. Danilo Medina, that in the coming days we will be turning the bill into law to allow any resident on our island to drive legally on our streets regardless of their immigration status,” the governor, according to a statement from the Dominican Foreign Relations Ministry.
