Warner calls T&T’s immigration treatment of J’cans inhumane

Trinidadian government officials are facing more criticisms at home over the recent decision by immigration officers to refuse entry to 13 Jamaicans.

This time, the criticism has come from Austin ‘Jack’ Warner, the controversial former national security minister in the Kamla Persad-Bissessar administration.

According to Warner, the decision to turn back the Jamaicans would not have happened if he was still the minister in charge of immigration.

Describing the treatment meted out to the Jamaicans as inhumane, he declared that during his tenure as national security minister he made it his business to facilitate regional immigration.

The outspoken former minister said the entire immigration impasse was being blown out of proportion and has been badly handled.
