Dominican Children of Haitian Descent Persecuted
Dominican children of Haitian descent are currently barred from attending school following the court ruling that could strip tens of thousands of their citizenship. Dozens of families with young students have been harassed or turned away because of  arbitrary interpretations of the court ruling and racially biased citizenship laws.

The Human Rights Institute at Georgetown University Law Center conducted research on this matter in January through March 2014. The final report released this month analyzed the impact of the September 2013 citizenship ruling.

The report revealed most children denied of education either dropped out of school or lost scholarships. Sadly, other students have been forced into child labor.

Despite the OAS assurance in February that the citizenship of Haitian descendants would not be revoked, the HRI report reflects the ongoing persecution of Blacks in the Dominican Republic.
