Dominicans without a legal basis to be in the US will not be able to legalize their status and may be deported

Jonathan Mardo, the attache of the Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP) of the United States Embassy in the Dominican Republic, issued a warning on Wednesday that the new program of temporary permits for immigrants from the North American nation does not include Dominican citizens. Mardo emphasized the dangers of entering the United States through illegal means, citing the illegal journeys made through the Mona Canal or across the US-Mexico border that result in hundreds of deaths each year.

Mardo stated that entering the United States via irregular channels is not only illegal but also incredibly hazardous. Those who choose to enter through such means risk deportation.

The United States will conclude with Title 42, a session of the Immigration Law, on Thursday. The law was created by the Government of Donald Trump and extended by Joe Biden that prevents the entry of foreigners through the border based on health conditions due to Covid. The situation has led to an unprecedented wave of Latino immigrants attempting to cross into North American soil before the deadline.

The new temporary permit program seeks to grant 30,000 visas to Venezuelans, Haitians, Cubans, and Nicaraguans for humanitarian purposes, but individuals who do not establish a legal basis to remain in the United States will not be eligible to legalize their immigration status and will be subject to deportation.

Migrants who illegally cross the US-Mexico border face harsh environmental conditions and endure days of walking through the desert without water, leading to hundreds of deaths every year. Additionally, they face kidnapping, robbery, injury, murder, and rape at the hands of unscrupulous people. The risks and inconveniences of traveling to the United States through illegal means outweigh the perceived benefits of migrating.

Title 42 primarily has to do with communicable diseases…remember the covid craziness…
