Dominican citizenship bill gets final OK in Senate | khou.com Houston

232251-debut-janvier-republique-dominicaine-avaitThe Senate in the Dominican Republic has given final legislative approval to a bill that will set up a system for granting naturalized citizenship to people of Haitian descent born in the Caribbean country.

The bill still must be officially published to become law. It was introduced by President Danilo Medina and the lower house passed it last week.

Medina submitted the bill after a court last year issued a much-criticized ruling that would allow the government to strip the citizenship of thousands of people born to migrants living illegally in the Dominican Republic. via | khou.com Houston
