Immigration issues in the Dominican


In recent months, the Dominican Republic has been feuding with neighboring island country Haiti about immigration and the legality of it. This story took a turn a few days ago when the Dominican Republic started putting a plan into place that could strip the citizenship of children born to migrants living there illegally.

The plan states that those affected by the ruling have 18 months to request Dominican citizenship starting in June 2014. The plan, however, does not provide details on what kind of requirements or conditions should be met. -EZEQUIEL ABIU LOPEZ Associated Press

The biggest problem with the plan is the idea that it seeks to naturalize citizens who were born in the Dominican Republic and do not hold passports from other countries.

All of this comes because of earlier issues with immigration agreements with Haiti.
