Excellent! That shows you that the diaspora leave the country and they never forget those left behind and they meet their obligations back home! It is a sign of responsible and loyal people who endure discrimination for lack of education, humiliation for speaking strange, racism for looking different, and withstand allergies for which they have no natural defenses.
LONG LIVE THE DOMINICANS!
