Haitians leaving Dominican Republic turned back at border
Santiago.- Haitian immigrants who didn’t qualify for the Dominican government´s program to regularize foreigners on Sunday said their country´s authorities prevent them from entering their territory, where they try to return voluntarily looking for identity cards and birth certificates to complete their documents required in this country, reports Listin.com.do.
It said a group of lawyers and leaders of the Coordination Santiago South Zone Organizations said they’ve been asked to defend those Haitians turned back while trying to enter their own territory.
“Haiti must accept its citizens in a responsible manner,” said attorney and Coordination spokesman Jose Alberto Peña, according to the outlet.
