For the last couple of days Immigration has been sweeping the north construction sites and rounding up the workers who are here illegally. Iím not sure just what they are doing with them but this is good news.
This afternoon there was a check point at the bridge and they were checking the people who were crossing.
Iím hopeful that this is something the local politicians and police can agree on.

IMO -they should also do a sweep of the schools=we have way too many illegals on this island and we should only educate the legal children on this island

Brussel, I do believe Pedro's comment is what is commonly refered to as sarcasm. wink

Harriette, if all the illegal construction workers are rounded up, who is going to do the work? and at what price?

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

If all the illegal people were paying for work permits, they would not be illegal and then we would have all the money needed to educate all the children. Problem solved.

Amazing insight here. Who would have known it is okay to break the immigration laws of the country of Belize, so long as one is willing to work for sub-standard wages in the field of construction, and live in an equally sub-standard 'house'. Do we really need those pesky visas?
