The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) says it is suspending the Dominican Republic's application until Santo Domingo acts to stop stripping citizenship rights of Dominicans of Haitian descent. In a statment Tuesday, Caricom said: "The Community, at this time, will suspend consideration of the request by the Dominican Republic for membership of the Caribbean Community"

Just recently, a Haitian man was accused of a double homicide, because of that an innocent Haitian man was slaughtered and "La Chasse aux Haitiens" began in Neiba, DR. This incident led to hundreds of Haitians being expelled from the Dominican Republic

Well... What do you think about that?
