Haitians trying to avoid deportation from Dominican Republic

Here is a long list of haitians in line applying just before the deadline to avoid deportation from Dominican Republic.

Dominican Expected To Begin Deporting Undocumented Immigrants
As the deadline for registering the adjustment of residential status has expired on June 17, 2015, the Dominican Republic is expected to begin deporting an estimated susceptible 500,000 undocumented immigrants of whom most are Haitians or Dominicans of Haitian descent. The D.R. government considers this a legitimate process to deal with the undocumented immigrants while ignoring the distinct characteristics of them. There are two distinct Haitian populations in the D.R-- Haitian immigrants engaged in low wage work and Dominicans of Haitian descent who were born in the country as citizen until a controversial court ruling unlawfully denationalized them in 2013. The majority of them do not speak Creole, know no one in Haiti, but would be uprooted from the place which they have known so far as their home in the Dominican Republic. Historically, many Dominican nationalists, by labeling its darker-skinned inhabitants as 'immigrants', have advocated to expel them from the country.
