    20,000 Jamaicans residing illegally in Trinidad.

    .
    Griffith, in a statement, claims that more than 20,000 Jamaicans were residing here illegally and have become a burden on the state.


    Former minister blames CSME for Jamaica-T&T migration problems

    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Former national security minister Gary Griffith is urging the Trinidad and Tobago Government not to be intimidated by calls out of Jamaica for that Caribbean Community (Caricom) country to seek legal action regarding the deportation of Jamaican nationals.

    Griffith, in a statement, claims that more than 20,000 Jamaicans were residing here illegally and have become a burden on the state.

    Earlier this week, Caricom Deputy Secretary-General Ambassador Dr Manorma Soeknandan said there is need for more sensitisation among regional border officials regarding the rules and procedures governing free travel within the 15-member grouping.

    Soeknandan said that the way Caricom nationals were treated as they travelled regionally continued to generate discussion.

    Jamaica has in the past few weeks been critical of the decision of immigration officials in Trinidad and Tobago to send back some of their nationals claiming that they were being deported because they would be a drain on the local economy.
    Jamaicans have called for a boycott of goods from Port of Spain and earlier this week Opposition legislator called on the new Andrew Holness-led Government to take the matter before the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

    But Griffith, who served as national security minister in the former government, said: “It is indeed alarming, that the Jamaican Opposition would question the legitimate actions by our immigration officers, as they attempt daily to do their jobs, after being abused constantly by a few Jamaican nationals who attempt to enter our country without the appropriate requirements, and documentation.

    “It is because of this, that there are over 20,000 Jamaican nationals who have done just that, by using the CSME (Caricom Single Market and Economy) angle to enter for six months, but then refuse to leave after that six-month period.

    “They remain unemployed and become a burden to the State; if unemployed, at times some turn to a life of crime, inclusive of gang activity; If they do work, many are abused by their employers because they are here illegally and paid below the minimum wage; be employed illegally, and hence taking a job away from a bona fide TT citizen who is unemployed," Griffith said.


    He said despite their illegal status, the Jamaicans still have full access to State resources such as education, medical care and other social services, and this is costing the State over TT$500 million (One TT dollar=US$0.16 cents) annually.

    Griffith said that while the oil-rich twin island republic always had a policy of welcoming non-nationals, it disallows them solely on the grounds of them being a national security threat or burden to the State purse.

    He said that the situation would not have reached to this extreme had Trinidad and Tobago been stringent with its laws.

    He said it was this relaxed attitude which resulted in “certain Caricom nationals” abusing the CSME programme.

    “To the Jamaican Opposition, if they are not aware, several Jamaican nationals verbally abuse our immigration officers on entry, and below are just a few examples that would confirm that such individuals should definitely be debarred entry if they attempt to enter our country, and no CSME clause can override this,” Griffith added.

    The CSME allows for the free movement of goods, skills, labour and services across the region.

    Wow, that is a lot, but we need Jamaica Govt to stimulate their economy so that we don't have all these freeloaders coming over for a free meal. What we should do is that if you can't prove you were born in T&T then you shouldn't qualified for these benefits, once Jamaicans and the rest of freeloading islands know we are generous , they coming, so we need to implement these laws to end them from coming !



    No wonder the spike in crime, i am sure this is contributing to the lawlessness going on there now !

    I concur 100% with everything you stated.

    For a quick second I was coming in here to blast you, then I realize that you somewhat supporting Trump #MakeAmericaGreatAgain , so I was coming to say how you want to send home Jamaicans, but have a problem when Trump and the Republicans say it…..but, your message and your take match !




    Unlike like 90 of your Bias fellow countrymen, it is ok they Ban and disrespect other Blacks (Jamaicans, GT, etc…..)who seeking a better life in a perceived better economy, lifestyle, yet have a problem when Trump and the Republicans taking a radical stand to say…..the Mexicans, , undocumented ( Caribbean, Hispanics, etc ) are “ here illegally and have become a burden on the state.”

    So I find it hypocritical that they agree with T&T Govt, but have a problem when Trump and the Republicans say the same thing! ….but yeah, I understand….trust me on that !



    My take on this…If I can borrow your term, they need to send home all the “ lowlives “ Jamaicans in Trinidad that are now taking part in “ Freeness “ and escalating the violence in Trinidad….I mean, let’s face it…T&T never had a crime issue until the Illegal Jamaicans started coming for “ freeness”......


    ..you know everywhere the Jamaicans go, UK, Bahamas, Barbados, etc….they are not wanted in the ppl them country due to the tendency of violence, drug trade, gun runners, Daggerin, Slack Dancehall lyrics, bleaching, Rasta, Ganga smokers, etc…..So yes, I concur 100 with the Gov’t of Trinidad…..Fcuk Caricom Laws…If you coming into my country and all of a sudden we in a recession, crime spiking….I too as the PM would Ban them and feel no way about…….


    So we in agreement here, Ban the “ Lowlives “ let the Jamaican Gov’t put things in place such as create an economy where you don’t have citizens running from their Homeland to give another country/Island problems, Trinidad’s point :" and have become a burden on the state."




    Send Them Home!

    I say legalize those Jamaicans ASAP that way we keep PNM in power. after we legalize the Jamaicans the next move is to legalize marijuana. The oil price is in shambles, gotta move on to cultivation. Marijuana = the healing of the nation and the economy.
