Journalism students report on the Haitian population in the Dominican Republic

Seventeen students from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University traveled “to the Dominican Republic to investigate how immigration and border policies are affecting the country’s large Haitian population.” The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting recently published several reports on what the students found:

“Whitney Phillips examined how the Dominican Republic “has re-written its Constitution, re-interpreted old laws and passed new ones” to deny Haitians birthright citizenship (en Español), Lauren Gilger told the story of pregnant Haitian women crossing over the border to give birth, and Serena Del Mundo described how the island of Hispanola is losing much of its international AIDS funding.”
