In the last two days, the new government modified the country's penal law allowing discrimination against people based on sexual preference and orientation. It also doesn't consider discrimination if the action comes from a "moral, ethical, personally held belief or institutional retirement". Reaffirmed the country's draconian abortion law by denying it in all instances (one of the few countries with total ban).

Dominicans in Twitter have been calling for a boycott on tourism (which is the only industry the government cares about) and making note of this decision using the hashtag #DontcometoDR.
