Haitian sugarcane workers can legalize status
Santo Domingo.- Interior and Police deputy minister Washington Gonzalez on Sunday said Haitians who’ve worked in Dominican Republic sugarcane fields during at least 10 years can legalize their status, “even without identification, they may seek a solution. ”
He said representatives of Haitian nationals who’ve worked in the sugar industry, especially those with a Government pension, asked the Interior and Police Ministry to legalize their immigrant status, “because that is what’s fair for these people.”
“The Dominican government understood the situation…and decided to grant them the legality because these foreigners have worked in the Dominican economy,” the official said interviewed on Toque Final Channel.
