Green Card for Boots?

Anthony “Boots” Martinez

Minister of Transport Edmond Castro had his U.S. diplomatic and personal visas revoked a few weeks ago for unconfirmed reasons, though his alleged involvement in the Immigration scandal is considered a key reason in some quarters.  But speculation has run rampant that other Government Ministers are in danger of losing their visas as well. One is Minister Anthony “Boots” Martinez, who was questioned in Belmopan today. Like his Cabinet colleague Castro, Minister Martinez is not hot about the idea of heading to “States” any time soon, but he confirmed that he does have an application in for a green card for himself and members of his family.

 

Anthony “Boots” Martinez, Minister of Human Development

“I have a paper right here, sir; where the Embassy is inviting me to fill out [an application] for my green card; I’m not even certain if I want a green card, but I am saying right here in my bag I have the application right here. And so I am not a person excited over America; at the time when I filed I filed for myself, my mother filed for my daughter and so; the paper has come up now, it’s up to me to take it in. so it’s not here or there. The United States invited me to not only have a visa but to live over there.”

 

After four terms in office, Martinez will step down as Port Loyola area representative at the end of his current term. And we’ll have more from the senate when we come back.

FOR THE IGNORANT AND ILLITERATE ONES WHO MAY WANT TO BELIEVE HIM AND KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING; YOU DON’T FILE FOR YOUR OWN GREEN CARD. SOMEONE HAD TO PUT IN A PETITION FOR HIM. ALL OF A SUDDEN NONE OF THEM HAVE “STATES FEVER” AND NONE WANT TO GO TO THE US. LMMFAS. I DIDN’T KNOW THE US EMBASSY WAS IN THE BUSINESS OF INVITING PEOPLE TO GO FILL OUT FORMS TO FILE FOR GREEN CARD. WHAT A COINCIDENCE HE’S CARRYING THE APPLICATIONAROUND IN HIS BAG. YOU SHOULD HAVE ASKED HIM TO SHOW IT TO YOU. YOU SLIPPED UP ON THAT AS A JOURNALIST. AND FOR HIM TO HAVE AN APPLICATION IN FOR HIS FAMILY, HE WOULD HAVE ALREADY HAD TO HAVE HIS GREEN CARD AND HE’S THE SPONSOR. PLEEASSSEEE BOOTS, I BEG YOU TO GO IN FOR THAT GREEN CARD. IN THE MEANTIME, CALL CANDELARA SALDIVAR, JOHN SALDIVAR, GODWIN HULSE . AND ERWIN CONTRERRAS. ALL OF YOU HAVE GOTTEN OR SOON WILL BE GETTING THAT INVITE TO FILE FOR YOUR GREEN CARD, HOLD ON, WHEN YOU GO IN, I HAVE TWO COUSINS WHO ARE DYING TO COME TO THE US. PLEASE SEE IF THE US EMBASSY WILL GIVE YOU A GREEN CARD APPLICATIONN FOR THEM.
