The Dominican Republic has just cursed their own nation. The repercussions will be far and wide. They will regret the day they made this decision. DR residents from all over the world will be affected and they will be perceived a certain way by all nations.

God will have his say in this decision.

Such foolish people.

Gena how are Dominicans going to pay for thistell me there are more than one million illegal people living in DR.and you donīt want DR to enforce itīs law,when the US wants to deports the illegals no one says nothing, and you and I know that if they open the border Haiti will probably stay with the people of petion ville and it would be almost empty, and Haitian people talk so much crap aboutDR and yet they still want to be Dominican should be a shame of yourself if I was Haitian I would go back to Haiti and don't go thru that situation. DR CONSTITUTION SAYS IF YOU ARE THE SON OF AN ILLEGAL PERSON YOU ARE ILLEGAL WHY CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. US LAWS ARE DIFFERENT BUT THAT THEIR LAW BODY GET THAT.
