Deporting 210,000, more or less, in the Caribbean.

Turns out that in the Dominican Republic, being born in the country will not make you a citizen. At least, not now. They are rounding up ‘dark skinned’ people with ‘Haitian features’. I can’t even imagine how this racist description could possibly make sense. Anyway, they are rounding them up for deportation to Haiti. Apparently, these humans are alleged to have been born of Haitians who had come to work in the Dominican Republic and that makes them, in the eyes of the Dominican Republic, non-citizens. Preparations for deportation appear underway. To where? How? When?

And, the USA remains silent. Are we not world leaders on human rights? Time to step up and show it, methinks.
