Fred Smith, QC: Mitchell’s absence from immigration debate is lamentable - Jan 28, 2015 - 6:56:13 PM

I was disappointed to learn that Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell is currently out of the country and therefore will not be available to take part in the upcoming COB debate on his controversial new immigration enforcement policy (today at 6pm, Harry C. Moore Library). I was looking forward to a lively and constructive discussion with the minister on the legality of the policy and its consequences for human rights in The Bahamas.

I maintain that the new policy, launched on November 1, 2014, involves several fundamental violations of the Constitution of The Bahamas, and is therefore unlawful. It is also my contention that harsh though it is, the policy is nothing more than a superficial, attention-seeking exercise designed to distract from the many failures of the PLP administration...
