Still from Cassandre Théano:
"The retreating of undocumented Haitians and Dominicans of haitian descent was reported in a few media outlets, see here: "Last Wednesday was the deadline for all noncitizens in the Dominican Republic to apply for residency, or face expulsion. The deadline applied to foreign-born migrant workers and residents born in the Dominican Republic who have no documentation since being stripped of their Dominican citizenships by a 2013 court decision. It passed without mass expulsions, but Haitians were all but absent from the streets of the capital, Santo Domingo, as many went into hiding." http://mobile.nytimes.com/
