NY Times highlights recent crackdown on Dominicans of Haitian descent

Off the heals of recent reports of the United Nations and the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights, the New York Times today published a story entitled “Dominican Crackdown Leaves Children of Haitian Immigrants in Legal Limbo“. The article highlights the story of Angel Luis Joseph, a Dominican of Haitian descent who’s denial of legal papers by the Dominican government has precluded the possibility of a lucrative baseball contract with the San Fransisco Giants. While Angel’s story has received some press due to its plot of rags-to-almost-riches, it echoes an increasingly entrenched denial of legal papers to Dominican children, men, and women born with Haitian names or Haitian skin.
