Thousands of undocumented Haitian immigrants face deportation as Dominican Republic officials aim to force immigrants to register under the regularization plan. The deadline was yesterday for families and independents to register to become citizens. Many weren’t able to register and the deportation will start immediately. Haitians count for 85 percent of the migrant workers in the country and Dominican officials aim to decrease that number. Officials claim they want to regulate their country with the regularization plan, they want to be able to control the number of entrants living in their country. The government has faced a number of criticisms in the matter, and objects by stating their legalization policy is more lenient than most countries, including the United States. Dominican Foreign Minister Andres Navarro stated, “Those who do not have documentation will have to return to their country.” As of today the fates of those who are undocumented lies in the hands of the government.
