Dominican Republic President Issues Decree on Naturalization Process for ‘Foreigners’

SANTO DOMINGO, (Reuters) – The Dominican Republic government announced details of a special naturalization process for undocumented “foreigners” and their children born in the Dominican Republic, in a presidential decree issued on Saturday.

The decree was signed by President Danilo Medina following a controversial court ruling last September that could strip Dominican citizenship from hundreds of thousands of children born over the last 84 years to migrants deemed to be living in the country illegally.

It was unclear exactly what the terms of eligibility for citizenship would be.
