Minister of Immigration weighs in on Immigration scandal

IMMIGRATION MEETING 2

Non-Belizeans must go through a process in order to acquire their Belizean Nationality and no step can be omitted in the process to get their paperwork done; that is what the substantive Minister of Immigration, Godwin Hulse, had to say to us following the lines at Dianne Finnegan’s constituency office last week.  As we reported, a crowd was at UDP Standard Bearer, Dianne Finnegan’s office last week Friday to see how they can get their documents expedited.

Non-Belizeans must go through a process in order to acquire their Belizean Nationality and no step can be omitted in the process to get their paperwork done; that is what the substantive Minister of Immigration, Godwin Hulse, had to say to us following the lines at Dianne Finnegan’s constituency office last week.  As we reported, a crowd was at UDP Standard Bearer, Dianne Finnegan’s office last week Friday to see how they can get their documents expedited. According to Minister Hulse there are steps that need to be completed before one acquires their nationality and no Minister or Area representative can bypass those steps.

Godwin Hulse, Minister of Immigration: “There is absolutely no way. It is not possible for anybody, for any area representative, for any aspirant to ensure that anybody gets nationality without going through the process- the process is absolutely clear. The 6th of January 2014 we signed into law a nationality committee, that committee is made up of social partners and government representatives, no politician, in fact it is cochaired by the social partners. The law calls for anybody whose application meets the satisfactory requirements that application is published in the gazette first so everybody knows that Aaron is applying for nationality and then it goes to the committee. The minister cannot sign the certificate without it going to the committee and once the committee approves it then is published again so the nation knows Aaron has now gotten his nationality. The certificate is then signed, its not finished there, there is a swearing in process which is public and open where everybody goes to that swearing in and there was one yesterday. None of those steps can be missed so there can be many many people applying and area representatives can say “man I will try see if I can get your document to the immigration.” they help you , that may be what politicians do but that process holds right through to get nationality.”

A meeting was held Monday night with Central American immigrants desirous of becoming Belizeans. At the meeting were several immigration officials speaking with the hundreds of people that were present.
