NEW YORK. – More than 30,000 Dominicans qualify to be deported for alleged violations of United States immigration laws, according to recent statistics from the Immigration and Citizenship Service (USCIS) released Wednesday.
Among the Creoles who would be subjected to repatriation processes are those that have passed the time of their tourist visas, who have been denied extensions for work visas, those who have humanitarian, business, student visas and those who are previously in deportation.
Dominicans who would be expelled from the United States for the alleged violations will be affected by President Donald Trumps new program to persecute immigrants and that establishes accelerated deportations.
The measure was activated on the first of this September, after Trump ordered USCIS and the judges of the immigration courts to expedite repatriations.
The provision will also affect foreigners who have a criminal record and cannot prove that they have been in the United States in the last two years.
According to the 2018 overstate report of the Department of Homeland Security (USCIS), a total of 15,262 Dominicans stayed in the United States with visas in different categories, so they appear in the data bank of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Police (ICE).
The 2017 USCIS report explains that 12,147 foreign visitors arrived in the United States with tourist visas, and were violating the time of stay, including students.
Between 2017 and 2018, USCIS said 27,409 Dominicans stayed in the United States after being admitted.
ICE would have sent them a notification that they are in the process of being deported.
Among those most affected by the Trump measure are immigrants who were deported and illegally re-entered the United States, those who committed serious crimes or have been convicted, drug traffickers and accused of terrorism.
