As a result of a 2013 Constitutional Court ruling, tens of thousands of Dominicans, the vast majority of Haitian descent, were stripped of their nationality and were left stateless. In 2014, a special law was passed to address the consequences of the Court ruling.

As a result, thousands have been able to re-acquire their Dominican nationality, but many others remain stateless.
