History

Dominicans residing in Argentina in the pursuit for a better life. Specific data on the amount of remittances from Argentina to the native land is unknown, given that the Dominican community here is not considered a large one. There are barely six thousand Dominicans residing in Buenos Aires, most of which are women that exhibit an irregular migratory situation.

Buenos Aires province concentrates 30 percent of the Dominican emigrants. The rest are spread across the remaining national territory.[1]

Many of the Dominican prostitutes ending up in Buenos Aires.[2] Thousands of destitute Dominican women are being victimized by human trafficking in the global sex trade, into other countries including the US.
