Only 7,000 of an estimated 200,000 eligible residents have signed up for residency cards, a scheme instigated by the government in the face of international pressure. The deadline to apply for the permits, which allow citizenship after two years, has passed.

"They shouldn't have to apply for residency," said Santiago Canton of the Robert F Kennedy Center for Human Rights in a Guardian interview. "They are Dominicans." Canton said the murder should be viewed "in the context of constant discrimination and violence against Haitians".
