City of North Miami Resolution on DR

August 4, 2015

The City of North Miami Beach, FL has passed a resolution on the crisis in the Dominican Republic. The resolution includes the following, among other clauses:

“Section 3. Urges the United States, and in particular the President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, to use any and all appropriate means to encourage the Dominican Republic to restore the rights of Dominicans wrongfully stripped of their citizenship, resolve the temporarily delayed mass deportation of Haitians, and develop a plan to genuinely address the plight of Haitians in the Dominican Republic, rather than create unworkable regularization schemes that effectively deny equal protection to Dominicans of Haitian descent. ”
