Dominican Republic Controversy Sparks Airport Demonstration

The Dominican Republic (DR) is experiencing fallout from the ruling threatening to displace more than 250,000 Haitians, descendents of illegal immigrants.

Haitians have struck back at the DR's $4.5 billion tourist industry. At an airport terminal, they placed an image of a bikini-clad woman sunbathing on a beach. She has bloodied hands and the lettering below the image says the DR denationalizes more than a quarter of a million human beings.

The DR is under pressure from CARICOM to reverse the ruling.
