'Dominican, Haitian, we are all one family': Dominican protesters condemn anti-Haitian law

The government and mass media of the Dominican Republic has been promoting a racist hysteria against Haitians for months, and this campaign has already led to deadly consequences. In late November, after the murder of an elderly Dominican couple near the Haitian border, a mob attacked and brutally murdered in broad daylight a Haitian migrant. Within the next few days, well over 300 Haitians were deported, while untold numbers are reportedly fleeing over the border or in boats for fear of their lives. The Dominican government misleadingly calls such departures "voluntary."
