The Associated press reports... This program is meant to help thousands of people who are at risk of being left stateless by a new law that strips many people of Haitian origin of citizenship in the Dominican Republic.

Quoting Haitian Radio Metropole, AP says, Jean Baptiste Saint-Cyr, director of Haiti's National Identification Office, announced the project which is supposed to begin next month. The plan is to travel in remote corners of DR, Turks and Caicos, an "other countries where Haitian immigrant live" to register them.
