Fred Mitchell responds to continuing comments about new Immigration policy

STATEMENT BY FRED MITCHELL MP
MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND IMMIGRATION
ON REPORTS ABOUT COMMENTS OF THE OAS SECRETARY GENERAL

21 November 2014

Yesterday it was reported in the press of Jamaica that during a visit to Jamaica, the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS) Jose Miguel Inzulza made comments about the immigration policies of The Bahamas government. The report in indirect speech said that the Secretary General had referred to "round ups" in The Bahamas of Haitians.

Last evening, I instructed the Ambassador to the OAS Dr. Elliston Rahming to make an immediate call to the Secretary General for an urgent clarification of this report. I am to meet the Secretary General (SG) in Washington shortly.

I did not propose prior to now to make any public comment about the content of that proposed meeting because the concerns raised earlier by the SG had been raised in camera with our officials. I am advised that the Assistant Secretary General was briefed fully on the policies and by extension the organization. Therefore any suggestion of the round up of people should not have been expressed from that office.

The record will also show that I have repeatedly said: we do not round up people, you round up cattle.

(Photo courtesy of Foto Factory for Barefoot Marketing)FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- With everyone beginning to cement their holiday plans, the Bahamas National Trust (BNT) is hoping that Festival Noel is on the holiday calendar of everyone that will be in Grand Bahama this festive season.

The planning of this year’s festival, which celebrates 20 years of success, is underway with the highlights of the festival – the food and the music – confirmed for December 5th.

“After last year’s exciting event, we are thrilled to see most of our restaurants returning,” said Sarah Kirkby, Festival Noel Committee member. “Agave and Red Beard’s both secured their spots for this year and we are delighted that 'Dive-In Restaurant and Bar’ will join us for the first time.”

Thanks to Bahamas Wholesale Agency, each restaurant is given product to help to assist them with feeding the large numbers of guests that pour into the Rand Nature Centre for the BNT’s only annual fundraiser in Freeport. “We are also confirming one last restaurant and it will be their debut with us as well,” said Kirkby. “These restaurants will compete for the coveted Chef Noel 2014 title – voted on by our guests.”

Rounding out the food on offer will be the GB Shipyard apprentices and bosses, roasting the annual pig during the usually chilly evening.  According to organizers, the Shipyard has been a great supporter of the Trust in Grand Bahama and this will be their second year cooking but third year giving financial support to the event.
