After the Dominican Republic stripped naturalized citizenship rights from residents with roots in
Haiti, hundreds of thousands of its residents became essentially stateless. On June 15, the Dominican
Republic gave them two days to produce documentation to register their immigration status under
threat of deportation to Haiti. At least 200,000 were unable to make the deadline.

The Dominican Republic says it isn't planning a "mass deportation," but it is readying buses to
shuttle Haitian-descendant Dominicans to newly opened detention centers. Over the weekend, at least
700 Haitian-Dominicans fled the chaos. The Dominican Republic says it will begin deportations in August.

The United States funds the Dominican military and provides millions of dollars in development and
humanitarian aid. US Border Patrol agents monitor the Haitian-Dominican border. In the face of
this gross human rights violation, the US should consider withholding some forms of aid to the
Dominican Republic.
