US Government: “Deep Concern” Over Dominican Republic Citizenship Ruling

“We’ve conveyed our deep concern to the Government of the Dominican Republic regarding the ruling’s impact on the citizenship status of persons in the Dominican Republic,” Harf said at a press briefing last week. “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 plan’s scope and reach to affected persons. So we’ll continue the dialogue, but we have expressed our concerns over it.”

It’s the first public response by the United States government to the Dominican Republic’s ruling, which has inflamed tensions both with neighbouring Haiti and the wider Caribbean region. via Caribbean Journal
