The Arrayanos are people of mixed Dominican and Haitian descent.  In 9/13 a law of the D.R.’s Court passed a new ruling that requires the review of all Dominican birth certificates, from 1929 onwards, to identify citizens born of “undocumented” foreigners which will strip them of their nationality.  It is clear that this measure is exclusively directed at the children of Haitians born in the D.R. Despite being mired in its worst miseries with unemployed people drowned in crime San Luis is also known for having of the most beautiful and colorful Gaga’s in the country.

The Dominican Republic and Haiti share the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, with Haiti in the western portion.Dominican officials estimate that around 1 million Haitians live in the country, most of them illegal immigrants who work in agriculture and construction.

Thousands of Haitians fled to the Dominican Republic after the magnitude-7.0 earthquake that killed and injured hundreds of thousands of people on Jan. 12, 2010, and displaced more than 1 million others.

Since 2007 the Dominican Governments has put in place new policies, which strips of citizenship papers people of Haitian descent who had already received them.
"A new constitutional, promulgated in January of 2010, has changed the framework of the nationality, and the creation of a constitutional order to deny citizenship to children born in its territory (Dominican), the non-resident migrants".

The massive repatriations are unfeasible in terms of human, economic and political terms. But the growing presence of poor Haitians in Dominican Republic as a country with few opportunities for social mobility, is a serious problem.
