Enforcement is a word and not a practice in the RD.

Sectors of the RD are too dependent on irregular foreigners to perform work declined by other potential laborers. Suspect employers game the present system for the economic advantage of using the foreigners because lower labor costs, ability to fire them, or turn them in to authorities without having a second thought of paying for tasks performed. Brutal !

What can be supposed there is a mechanism for employers to apply for government waiver of the rule when there is not enough domestic labor.
