6,000 Dominicans lose US visas and residencies
The United States’ government has cancelled visas and US residencies of more than 6,000 Dominicans in the past four years, including some who held influential positions during the previous Leonel Fernandez government.
According to reliable sources, people who have had their visas cancelled include former diplomats, more than 200 active and retired members of the armed forces and national police, former mayors and councilors, former directors of several government organizations, and active and retired Major League baseball players.
They include up to four or five members of the same family who were accused by the United States of immigration law violations and of committing acts that could endanger the government of the United States.
Visas and US residencies are cancelled by the Department of State and the Dominicans involved had them cancelled for several reasons, including drug trafficking, money laundering, corruption, murder, contract killings, kidnapping and human trafficking.
Some cancellations were also made for Dominicans who overstayed their visas after traveling to the United States.
