Release these poor unfortunate kids. They were only trying to supplement the family's income, who are struggling to survive on the tiny pittance, allowances and benefits these overseas deputies receive.

Until the Dominican People don’t wake up and realize that their country has been overtaken by a NARCO Mob called the PLD, that has taken FULL control of the Failed State we will not progress one millimeter.

Danilo is nothing but latest MADE GUY to “control” the Constitutional Purple Dictatorship and placing hopes in him is like wish to find water in the Atacama Desert!
