Nassau, Bahamas - The Ministry of
Foreign Affairs takes note of a statement purportedly issued by Freeport
Attorney Fred Smith about the Immigration policies of the Bahamas Government.
The statements by Mr. Smith are in
grave error and are materially incorrect.
The Ministry is again concerned by
certain actors in the population that appear to be intent on chasing
headlines, seeking to create public hysteria and resorting to misinformation in
order to do so. Their language is intemperate, inflammatory and the claims regarding
the immigration policy are inaccurate.
There has been no breach of the law
and no violation of anyone's constitutional rights, sanctioned by the Bahamas
Government in the enforcement of the country's immigration laws.
That is not the policy of the government.
