Abstract

Caroline Bettinger-López and Indira Goris's June 2007 Op-Ed in The Miami Herald discusses the Dominican Republic's citizenship policies, including the approval of a controversial new plan to create a "Pink Book of Foreigners," which assigns pink birth certificates to children of mothers (primarily of Haitian descent) who are not legal residents or who are unable to prove their nationality.
