The Dominican Republic is approving the first residency and work permits for migrants under a new program that has drawn more than 115,000 applicants. So far very few of the mostly Haitian migrants have qualified. Deputy Interior Minister Washington Gonzalez says only 275 people have produced sufficient documentation as of Thursday. Gonzalez says the government expects to issue the first residency documents to about 80 people in the coming days. The remaining applicants are trying to come up with documentation to prove they meet the eligibility requirements.
