United Nations to Dominican Republic: Stop Revoking Citizenships, Deportations

PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI (AP) – The United Nations is asking the Dominican Republic to quickly reinstate the nationality of individuals affected by a recent court decision that could revoke the citizenship of tens of thousands of people.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said Thursday that international legal standards require Dominican authorities to restore automatically the nationality of individuals affected by the ruling. People affected also need a simple way to obtain identity documents.
