Bittersweet Bateys

Betty Bazile holds her newborn twins, Kendri Emanuel and Kenia Esperanza, born January 3, 2014, in a premature infant ward at a hospital in San Pedro de Macoris. Because she is an undocumented Haitian, her infants were not given Dominican birth certificates and are not eligible for state assistance. She worries about being able to pay the hospital bills and feeding her two newborns.
