US urges Dominican Republic to avoid mass deportations


WASHINGTON: Washington urged the Dominican Republic Friday (Saturday in Manila) to work to avoid mass deportations and to act transparently following a controversial registration process that has left thousands of people facing deportation. The statement follows news reports that the Dominican government had resumed detaining and deporting migrants Friday, as thousands of migrants continue to leave the country for neighboring Haiti. The Dominican Republic had given undocumented migrants, the vast majority of which are Haitian, until June 17 to register with authorities or face deportation.
