Keep J’can crooks out of Cayman

THE EDITOR, Sir:

During the recent visit of Prime Minister Andrew Holness to Cayman, he suggested that Cayman open its borders to unrestricted travel by Jamaicans.

Currently, we have a mutual visa regiment in place that at least requires some screening of the individuals’ background in the way of a police report.

Please explain to us how we would be able to keep criminals out of our country if we were to open our border to unrestricted travel by your countrymen.

Of course, it goes without saying that no one wants the type of criminal activity Jamaica is experiencing in Cayman. With that said, Cayman has a large population of law-abiding Jamaican nationals living here.
