U.S. backs Dominican Republic’s controversial plan for immigrants

Santo Domingo.- United States Ambassador James Brewster on Thursday said he supports the Government’s plan to register foreigners, noting he agrees with it based on its implementation with respect of the rights of immigrants who are in an irregular situation.

He said Washington’s commitment is for an island with two countries which have wellbeing for their peoples.

The diplomat’s brief statement quoted by elcaribe.com.do comes just 24 hours after president Danilo Medina slammed critics of the Constitutional Court ruling that specifies criteria to obtain a Dominican nationality.
