Dominican Republic to deport undocumented Haitians

Hundreds of thousands of people from neighbouring Haiti face deportation from the Dominican Republic under a new law.

International human rights groups are warning that tens of thousands of undocumented immigrants in the Dominican Republic are at risk of deportation when a government deadline to apply for legal status passes at midnight on June 18.

Up to 200, 000 people born in the country to parents who are undocumented are also at risk of being expelled after a change in the constitution.
