U.S. expresses ‘deep concern’ over Dominican court citizenship ruling – Haiti – MiamiHerald.com


1nzELh.St.56“We\’ve urged the government to continue close consultation with international partners and civil society to identify and expeditiously address, in a humane way, concerns regarding the planned scope and reach to affected persons,” said Marie Harf, the State Department’s deputy spokeswoman.

The Dominican constitutional court’s Sept. 23 ruling retroactively stripped citizenship from anyone born in the country to undocumented parents dating back to 1929.

Harf acknowledged that the majority of those affected are of Haitian descent and said, “We’ll continue to dialogue, but we have expressed our concerns over it.” via  – MiamiHerald.com
