Junot Diaz Stripped of Dominican Republic National Award Over Advocacy

Source: Junot Diaz Stripped of Dominican Republic National Award Over Advocacy | Flavorwire

“The Dominican Republic announced that on Thursday they rescinded the national Order of Merit award given to Junot Diaz after he publicly asked the United States to act on behalf of the Dominican Republic’s undocumented immigrant population.”

The Dominican government’s despicable action has now called more attention to Diaz’ comments. Now more of us know about the problem than would have known had the government done nothing.
