Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
In short, yes. The bench warrant could show up when they run your passport. If it does, you will be detained, either trying to re-enter the United States or when you enter Punta Cana. I would not attempt to travel out of country until you get the bench warrant issue cleared up. Having said that, if they just stamp and do not scan your passport, then you likely will not be affected. It is a risk though that I cannot advise you to under take.
