Haitians face deportation from Dominican Republic [VIDEO]

About 500,000 legally stateless people could be sent to Haiti on June 17th. Only 300 of 250,000 Dominican Haitians applying have received permits. Yesenia Originé has never been to Haiti and has no interest in going.She was born in the Dominican city of San Pedro de Macorís to Haitian parents. But because she has no papers to prove it, she, like thousands of other people of Haitian descent in the Dominican Republic, risks being rounded up and deported to the neighboring country.
