A Haitian immigrant to the Dominican Republic returns to Haiti

Haitian Alphonse Santane, left, 23, sits next to a Dominican soldier on a National Migration Office bus in Santo Domingo June 24, 2015. Santane is returning to Haiti voluntarily after a new Dominican migration law requires hundreds of thousands of Haitians and people of Haitian descent to show identity documents or register for a so-called "regularization" program. Those who registered have up to 45 days during which their applications are verified.
