US: Pelosi, others meet with officials in Dominican Republic

U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a delegation of fellow Democrats are meeting with authorities in the Dominican Republic to talk about migrants’ human rights. The group is scheduled to meet privately with President Danilo Medina to talk about a Dominican court ruling that found people born in the Dominican Republic to migrants living there illegally are not automatically entitled to citizenship. Human rights activists have accused the government of basically rendering thousands of people stateless.
