Got it the Dominicans wear black hats, and the Haitians wear white hats. nuf said.
No such thing. I simply said I found the "Executive Summary" to be slanted wholly toward the Dominicans, i.e., written from a Dominican perspective ONLY, thus suspect. To wit: Anytime a person can say Dominicans are color-conscious among themselves, but color plays no appreciable role in Dominicans' consciousness about Haitians.... not "don't" but CAN'T believe that. If the premise of the study is faulty, the study is built on sand.

No disrespect.

no disrespect taken but the writer is not writing from a dominican perspective, Still think you need to read the report rather than just the summary, as then you will see where the writer is coming from.

Haitian an OAS plan to provide documentation to Haitians living in the Dominican Republic who have no documentation
http://www.oas.org/en/media_center/press_release.asp?sCodigo=E-273/14

The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, today received the President of Haiti, Michel Martelly, who reiterated his firm commitment to hold elections on October 26 of this year, in accordance with the political agreements made with other political forces in his country.

During the meeting, President Martelly explained that he has taken the necessary steps to make certain that these elections are held and requested the support of the OAS to ensure that the electoral process complies with all due guarantees. In addition, he asked the Secretary General to send an Electoral Observation Mission (EOM) to the elections, in which Haitians will choose 20 Senators, 112 Deputies, and local authorities.

For his part, Secretary General Insulza committed the support of the Organization and the timely deployment of a preliminary mission, in accordance with Article 25 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, to back the holding of free and fair elections, in a process planned for October. The Secretary General also offered to organize an Electoral Observation Mission in a timely manner.

On a separate issue, the OAS leader delivered to President Martelly an action plan to support the Government of Haiti in providing identification for Haitians residing in the Dominican Republic without documentation. The action plan was prepared at the request of the President of the Dominican Republic, Danilo Medina, and the Prime Minister of Haiti, Laurent Lamothe.

The “Diagnostic for the Identification of Haitian Migrants Residing in the Dominican Republic,” drafted by the Universal Civil Identity Program in the Americas (PUICA) of the OAS, proposes concrete steps to provide birth certificates and National Identification Cards to an estimated 200,000 undocumented Haitian migrants living and working in the Dominican Republic. The project, which is expected to least for a year and a half, will include 23 offices and a mobile unit to reach faraway communities.

Providing legal documentation to Haitian migrants represents the first step in the regularization of their residency status in the Dominican Republic.
