======================Amnesty mobile clinic held in San Pedro
An amnesty program designed to legalize undocumented immigrants in Belize held mobile clinics over the weekend of April 2nd. Over 200 islanders looking to address their legal status in the country visited the San Pedro High School, where they were assisted with residency applications. The amnesty program is available to Central American and CARICOM citizens.
The program is supported by Belize Rural South Area Representative Honourable Andre Perez, who made it part of his manifesto while campaigning. Perez visited the mobile clinic, spoke to those applying to change their immigration status, and met with the officers and volunteers running the services. Besides the Immigration Department and other government officials, other entities assisting in the event included members of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, the International Organization of Migration, and the San Pedro of Justices of Peace. The immigrant station screened applicants to determine if they qualified for the program or needed other documents. Perez indicated that it is the right thing to do, as Belize and its neighbors have a lot in common. Registered asylum seekers automatically qualify as irregular immigrants who have resided continuously in Belize for five or more years. Other conditions considered are those with Belizean children, persons who may have completed primary and or secondary studies here, and those married to a Belizean for at least one year or in a common-law union with a Belizean for a continuous period of five years or more.
