Minnis gives illegal migrants a deadline to leave the country
Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis declared in the House of Assembly today that all migrants in The Bahamas illegally have until December 31, 2017 to leave, after which they would be aggressively pursued and deported.
“This applies to all nationalities,” Minnis said.
“Those Bahamians who employ illegal migrants have until December 31, 2017 to regularize these individuals or stop employing them.”
Minnis warned that those who employ illegal migrants will be prosecuted.
“We must be a country of law and order,” Minnis said.
The prime minister also charged that the Progressive Liberal Party laid the foundation for much of the crime that is happening now because it tolerated “massive corruption” in its last term.
