Minister of Immigration addresses border issues…

Godwin Hulse

On Monday, tensions ran high at the western border with Guatemala in Benque Viejo del Carmen. Police and immigration were stationed at the border stopping Guatemalan laborers who travel to Belize for work, without the requisite documents. On Monday, following the Senate Meeting, Minister of Immigration Godwin Hulse spoke to the media about the operation at the border.

 

Godwin Hulse, Minister of Immigration

“The police and immigration undertook an exercise this morning because there have been lots of people streaming across the border, we understand, to come to work and you can’t work in this country as a foreigner without a work permit; as simple as that.”

 

Reporter

“We are hearing that they are quite riled up about it. in fact they may end up planning a demonstration tomorrow and even talking about not allowing tourists, not allowing people to go across either way.”

 

Godwin Hulse

“Who is they?”

 

Reporter

“The Guatemalans.”

 

Godwin Hulse

“Well the Guatemalans can’t demonstrate in Belize.”

 

Reporter

“But they can demonstrate perhaps that area in front of the adjacency/O.A.S. office.”

 

Godwin Hulse

“Nobody can tell them what to do and not do in their country; we do what we do in our country.”

 

Reporter

“But certainly you will send out reinforcement or try to find out if in fact that is the case?”

 

Godwin Hulse

“The police will do what they have to do.”

    Awesome… a man on a mission. Finally, someone who puts Belize’s interest first instead of out looking for personal gain. One of the best decision PM Barrow made when he transferred a corrupt politician out of the Police Department and assigned someone who has the respect of the people at home and abroad.
