Presidency legal adviser Cesar Pina, who together with Interior and Police minister José Ramón Fadul handed over the draft to Chamber of Deputies president Abel Martínez, said the proposed legislation would create a fast rrack to regularize offspring of non-resident foreign parents registered with the Civil Registrar, but whose documents aren’t based on recognized current regulations.
