Haitian Families at Risk of Deportation

Tens of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent remain without proper documentation, and are unable to exercise their basic rights as they are considered undocumented aliens to a country they call home. Dominicans of Haitian descent are still unable to access basic life functions such as registering children at birth, enrolling in school and college, participating in the formal economy, or travelling around the country without risk of expulsion. The Dominican Republic is denying tens of thousands of citizens their right to a nationality, and despite mixed messages, people are being detained and deported over the border. My family is from the Dominican Republic and I find this horrible. People need to be accepted in their own countries no matter where it is. All people deserve their rights! What do you think?
