SOS... Hundreds of Thousands of Dominicans of Haitian Decent Are About to Loose Everything, Yet No One Seems to Care?

SOS... SOS... In the Dominican Republic, its government has passed laws... The Dominican government has publicly stated that mass deportations of its citizens of Haitian descent will commence on or about June 17, 2015. That government has massed a fleet of buses to deport these Dominicans to a land largely foreign to these people. The Dominican military, for its part, is ramping up efforts at collective deportations, according to reports, sweeping up anyone who "looks" Haitian, and dumping them in Haiti. Despite these horrors, no world leader and few media outlets are focusing on this very real human rights tragedy.

Despite these facts, neither media outlets nor other world leaders are sufficiently addressing the matter. Those of us of good conscience must therefore not rest -- we must shed light to darkness and expose this travesty at our doorstep. If not, hundreds of thousands will invariably be driven from their homes, will unquestionably be left with no rights, i.e., become stateless, and dare I say, many others will face even a worse fate, mass incarceration or killings.

Action must be taken to force an end this nightmare!

At least they are coming home alive.

How many have died under president Trujillo?

Imagine though, a time/ the day when we will create a city similar to Batee on our side of the country, where our brothers will reside, plant sugar cane, and be able to enjoy the fruit of their labor peacefully in

Yes, it's quite simple, I agree.

Any government around the world would have done the same because mass illegral immigration is a jeopardy to any country.

How is it wrong to enforce the law and deport those who are ilegal?

The Dominican Republic is NOT HAITI, will not, and Can't be Haiti.

What happens with ilegal hatians in Bahamas, Brazil, US, and everywhere?

They get deported the same way Dominicans do from other places.

Face the fact. The law is the law. If you are ilegal you don't belong.

If you are legal...WELCOME! Simple as

"will unquestionably be left with no rights, i.e., become stateless"

Let see what the constitution of the Republic of Haiti, 1987, has to say about that:

ARTICLE 11: Any person born of a Haitian father or Haitian mother who are themselves native-born Haitians and have never renounced their nationality possesses Haitian nationality at the time of birth.
