Santo Domingo.- The president of the Central American Parliament (Parlacen), Amado Cerrud Acevedo, stated that the issue of Haitian immigration is no longer just a matter for the Dominican Republic but for the Parlacen as well.

During the commemoration of the XXV anniversary of the Dominican Republic’s incorporation into Parlacen, the first deputies appointed by decrees were recognized for their contributions.

Several members were recognized for their dedication and service to the Central American Parliament, further highlighting the importance of cooperation and regional integration in addressing various challenges, including immigration issues.
