 In 2005, Sonia Pierre petitioned the  Inter-American Court of Human Rights  on the case of two ethnic Haitian children who were denied Dominican birth certificates. Yean and Bosico v. Dominican Republic , the case "upheld human rights laws prohibiting racial discrimination in access to nationality and citizenship.". The court ordered the Dominican government to provide the birth certificates.  However, the Dominican Supreme Court later ruled that "Haitian workers were considered 'in transit,' and that their children were therefore not entitled to citizenship.
 Leaflet distributed in the street of Santo Domingo.  " Be aware of the Haitians". They can kill you or kidnap you at any time.  They could also rob you.  Out the Haitians invaders of the Dominican Republic."
