Haitian illegals in the Bahamas have until 31 December 2017 to go back to Haiti or face deportations

For Haitians immigrants in the Bahamas, there is no such thing as TPS... Haitian illegals in the Bahamas have until 31 December 2017 to go back to Haiti or face deportations, according to Haiti radio news report Friday.

We dug further and discovered that Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis announced to parliament in early October that all illegal migrants in the country, regardless of their nationality, have until 31 December 2017 to return voluntarily to their country of origin.

After this deadline, the Bahamian Prime Minister said, these illegal immigrants will be pursued and immediately arrested and expelled from The Bahamas.

When you take into account that nearly half of the 80+ thousand Haitians living in the Bahamas are living there illegally, we are about to witness a mass deportation of Haitians from the Bahamas back to Haiti.

What do you think about that?

I think the laws of Haiti must be respected should I enter Haiti.

Similarly, the laws of the Bahamas should be respected by Haitians and all other foreigners too. What do you think of sending guns and bullets to The Bahamas instead of the coffee, taffia and sugar that Bahamians once purchased?

What do you think about Haiti now buying rice from The United States and sugar imports increasing.

A mon avis, les questions idoines (the genuine questions) à se poser sont, - en plus de se les poser uniquement en se demandant quoi en penser -, les suivantes:

1. Que doit faire Haïti pour éviter d'avoir des migrants aux Bahamas?

2. Comment agir et quoi faire pour réguler le flot des déportations des 40.000 illégaux qui vont être déportés?

Pour les Haïtiens immigrés aux Bahamas, il n'y a pas de TPS...

Les Haïtiens illégaux aux Bahamas ont jusqu'au 31 décembre 2017 pour retourner en Haïti ou faire face à des déportations, a rapporté vendredi une station de radio haïtienne.

Le Premier ministre des Bahamas, Hubert Minnis, avait annoncé au parlement début octobre que tous les migrants illégaux dans le pays, quelle que soit leur nationalité, ont jusqu'au 31 décembre 2017 pour retourner volontairement dans leur pays d'origine.
