first_imgDominica has become the latest Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country to announce the lifting of visa restrictions on nationals from Haiti, three months after CARICOM leaders agreed to the measure.Despite being part of the 15-member CARICOM grouping, Haitian nationals in the past have had to obtain a visa to enter several of the CARICOM countries.Barbados’ leadLast month, Barbados said Haitians would no longer require visas to enter the island and would be entitled to an automatic stay of six months upon their arrival in any CARICOM Member State.”Bridgetown noted that in accordance with the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas and the Caribbean Community Law, CARICOM nationals travelling to other member states must possess sufficient financial resources to adequately maintain themselves without becoming a charge on public funds.Justice, Immigration and National Security Minister, Rayburn Blackmoore, said that Haitians have made a meaningful contribution to the socio-economic development of Dominica and  that  “the vision of CARICOM depends heavily on our integrated and unified Caribbean and that vision cannot be realized by the imposition of barriers to travel among member states.Allowed automatic entry “The Heads of Governments in 2007 decided that all CARICOM nationals should be allowed automatic entry in a push to enhance the sense of belonging and community, entry would be denied if citizens were deemed undesirable, a security threat and if they were likely to cause a burden on the public purse.”Blackmoore said Haitians living in Dominica have successfully integrated themselves into the Dominican society.“Many Haitian citizens have obtained citizenship of the Commonwealth of Dominica and have integrated and become a vital part of the agricultural, the construction industry, the private security and the sewing industry,” he stated. “That can be seen as proof of their ability to assimilate into the Dominican culture, maintain homes and families and a decent standard of living.last_img read more


first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – THE Communication Workers Union (CWU) says the state-owned Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) is preparing to send home hundreds of workers through what it claims to be a “union busting tactic”.CWU secretary general Clyde Elder said the union held talks with the TSTT vice president for human resources, industrial relations and corporate support services, Carol David, regarding new structures for the telecommunications company.Three proposals to lay off workersHe told reporters that the company, has within a one-month period, sent three proposals, suggesting on each occasion a reduction in staff from 1,500 to between 700 and 900.He said in its latest communication, November 12, the company attached a list of over 50 positions to be made redundant.Union busting strategy?“We see it as nothing but a union busting tactic because while the unionized workforce is being decreased and depleted, the company has increased the non-unionized workforce.“It is clear to us what they are looking to do is to decimate the CWU, bust the union and the government is intent on busting the unions,” he added.Elder said while the company has indicated that there are people who are of ‘surplus requirement,’ it has nonetheless refused “to give us a number and names until we have completed discussions on the structure”.He said he believes the action by the company is a government initiative that started off at the state-owned oil company PETROTRIN where thousands of workers were recently placed on the breadline.“We expect it to continue at places like T&TEC (Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Company), the Port and it is all in an effort by the government to silence loud, large, right thinking, up standing progressive unions”.There has so far been no response from TSTT to the allegations made by the CWU.last_img read more


first_imgWASHINGTON, DC –  South Florida’s Congressional Representatives Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FL-26), Donna Shalala (FL-27), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) has called for the closure of the Homestead Temporary Shelter and for the transition of the children being held there to smaller facilities managed by non-profit organizations better equipped to care for them and transition to family or sponsors more quickly. The Congresswomen’s call for a shutdown of the Homestead Temporary Shelter follows the recent release of court documents that detail descriptions of psychologically isolating, “prison-like” conditions the children endure at Homestead.Disturbing report list atrocitiesAs reported by the Miami Herald, the lengthy court document provides more disturbing details about the mental and physical damage being inflicted by the prolonged detention of these children, including the strict rules they must follow, such as no water or bathroom breaks without permission and only two 10-minute calls a week to communicate with family members.Denied accessAfter previous oversight visits to the facility, all three Members raised concerns about the harsh conditions, inadequate resources and lengthy stays the children experience at the shelter. However, after federal officials announced the facility would significantly increase its capacity – from 2,350 to 3,200 beds, the Congresswomen were denied access to spot-check the facility. Last month, they requested that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General investigate various issues related to the facility’s conditions, oversight access, and contracting concerns.Details from the latest court documents add to the mounting problems plaguing the facility and the children it houses.Symbolizes everything wrong with Trump administration“The Homestead child detention facility has come to symbolize everything that is wrong with the Trump Administration. Reports of dangerous and scarring conditions are becoming too common. As of June 1, the 2019 hurricane season has begun, and neither the Administration nor the company operating the facility has a hurricane evacuation plan in place. When I first visited the facility, I was shocked and heartbroken at the prison-like conditions children are being detained in. Sadly, those conditions have only worsened as they continue to cram more children into already-limited spaces. It’s time the Administration begin taking the necessary steps to relocate the children who are fleeing violence and poverty to safe environments where they can prosper and begin living the American Dream – not the nightmare manufactured by a corrupt, greedy, and heartless Administration. The Homestead child facility must be shut down, so we can restore our country’s values of being a refuge for immigrants,” said Rep. Mucarsel-Powell.Crammed into prison-like facilities“When I first toured the Homestead shelter in February, I was deeply disturbed by what I saw: hundreds and hundreds of children crammed into a prison-like facilities with inadequate resources. When my colleagues and I tried to follow-up with a visit in April, we were denied access to the shelter, and therefore prevented from exercising our constitutional obligation to conduct oversight. After reviewing the court document, I think it’s time to take steps toward closing the Homestead facility and transferring these unaccompanied children to smaller shelters operated and overseen by experienced non-profit groups that have welcomed immigrants for years. The officials overseeing the shelter have clearly demonstrated that they do not have the skill or the understanding to properly care for these children and move them more quickly to family members or sponsors,” said Rep. Shalala.Provide humane living conditions“It’s time to shutter the so-called ‘temporary emergency’ Homestead detention center. The ever-expanding numbers and lengths of stay there are neither temporary nor emergent. The Trump administration must finally provide these young people with humane living conditions that treat them with dignity, ensure basic human rights, and provide comprehensive support and services. The latest court documents detail heartbreaking conditions that hundreds of children endure there every day. This must come to a quick and sensible end, one that prioritizes the welfare of these young people. Coupled with the denial of basic oversight, prolonged stays, and contract and conflict concerns tied to the for-profit operators, it is time for swift action to connect these young people with eligible sponsors, or move them into non-restrictive, licensed community-based residential facilities,” said Rep. Wasserman Schultz.last_img read more
