Statement on Threat of Mass Forced Deportations in Dominican Republic

“The Dominican Republic government has threatened a large-scale program of forced deportations of Dominicans of Haitian descent and Haitian migrants. This is an outrage.

“The Dominican government is starting down a road paved with fear, mistrust, and racism that leads only to injustice and suffering. My heart is with New York’s Haitian community and with the many Dominican New Yorkers protesting this destructive path. New York’s immigrant heritage shows only too well how diversity gives a society strength, while fear, mistrust, and racism tear it apart. The Dominican government must renounce this policy.”
