Official: Dominican Republic won’t kneel or be humiliated from abroad
Santo Domingo.- The Civil Registry Commission will meet at the Central Electoral Board (JCE) Thursday to start a case-by-case review of records of foreigners in its files, including in the National Immigration Commission, as president Danilo Medina ordered Wednesday.
JCE president Roberto Rosario said the agency report on the Constitutional Court ruling impact in foreigners registered in the registry, will be rendered in a transparent and respectful manner.
He also announced that a commission of observers who’ll monitor and continue the review of records would also be named today. "This process is done with the greatest possible transparency, because there’s no attitude of xenophobia against Haitians.”
"It’s not a legal issue but rather humanitarian concern, and a year from now the Constitutional Court ruling won’t be a issue in the country, when all foreigners have their alien registration," the official said, adding that the plan to regulate aliens will start next week.
Won’t kneel or be humiliated
“Dominican Republic won’t kneel to or be humiliated by those who want to press for convictions by organizations of the international community that want to impose rules."
