    I think the U.S. should give P.R. their independence (like it or not). It is a major drain financially. P.R. has beautiful beaches with better infrastructure than the D.R. but unfortunately worse drug problems and comparable corruption within the Gov.
    I haven't verified this but I have heard P.R. has a higher number of citizens per cap. on the dole than any other U.S. state/territory.

    Yeah, PR is tired of being the vesgial tail of the US. Their money problems could have been addressed by Congress but we're not. John Oliver did a piece on territories. Good thing DR is no longer occupied land.

    There's no question that the number of Puerto Ricans moving to the DR is much greater than those deported. In fact, that's probably true of every single deported group, unfortunately.

    Puerto Ricans in DR

    Of course not. They are deporting those who have no documentation and no income potential. That was the intent of the immigration law and they will continue to enforce it where necessary. The DR gov is trying to eliminate those groups who pose a threat to security or those who come to the DR to live off others.

    We often do not hear the details of foreigners that are deported. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that tourists who are classified as irregular residents or as significant overstayers and subsequently deported are not being mentioned to avoid the negative press that could affect tourism. We would be dependent on the individual reporting the details. If that person isn't a DRone or opts not to say anything, we would never know.

    Eg., the 7 picked up on the north coast in the one and only tourist sweep last month. News reports labeled them as candidates for deportation but nothing further was reported. We know these weren't Haitians or Venezuelans.

    The tourist card gives a foreigner the right to be in the DR for 30 consecutive days without the need of a visa. Anyone that stays beyond the amount of days the law grants them for touristic purposes is not a tourist, IMO.

    In fact, by law the moment the tourist card expires, if a new one isn't purchased prior to expiration, the tourist becomes an illegal immigrant.

    Dominican authorities have all the right to deport illegal immigrants, no exceptions. 


     

    Its not as if getting a new tourist card is a hard thing to do. If its impossible to just buy a new one, all a tourist has to do is head for the border and cross into Haiti. 10 minutes later re-enter the DR and buy a new tourist card, done.

    If that's too bothersome during your vacation, then prior to visiting the DR apply for a tourist visa. You don't need to buy a tourist card if you have the visa, and I think the visa allows a greater amount of days.

    You obviously haven't kept up. It's no longer possible to go over to Haiti and 10 mins later return with a new card. Keep up.
