  5. Protests are growing as the Dominican Republic tries to strip citizenship from Haitians

    Because of a court ruling in the Dominican Republic against undocumented immigrants, nearly a quarter of a million people are finding themselves stateless. Many of them are Haitians since Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the same island. Protests have spread as far as New York.

    The ruling tightens a 2010 law denying citizenship to people born to parents who are not Dominican. It applies the law retroactively to anyone born after 1929. And it affects about 250,000 people — most of whom have roots in Haiti. 

    The move is part of a long and intensifying debate in the Dominican Republic over undocumented workers and their children.

    Now, the ruling is reverberating in New York City, home to large Haitian and Dominican immigrant communities.
