Ladyville house used for elections registration processing?

Aside from the use of fraudulent addresses in Orange Walk, this morning in Ladyville dozens of immigrants lined up outside a private house in the Mitchell Estate area, a stone’s throw away from the home of area representative Michael Hutchinson, where it is believed that immigration officers were on hand to facilitate the naturalization process.  Ordinarily, the procedure entails the filing of legal documents, including passports and birth certificates, as well as a battery of physical and medical examinations to accompany each application prior to the issuance of a nationality certificate.  We cannot ascertain whether those tests have been conducted but what we do know is that the process was not being carried out at the Immigration and Nationality Department.  Instead an officer, as seen in this amateur video clip, was dispatched to the neighborhood where he reportedly assisted in the expedition of that process. While we did not sight Hutchinson at the house, we did see his vehicle parked in the vicinity.  On Tuesday, a resident of San Lorenzo in Orange Walk came forward with proof that her address was being used fraudulently during in the naturalization of immigrants.

    I am sick and tired of the media houses making this news its was done by the PUP and now by the UDP..why is it a big deal now and when it was done in the past we shut our mouths. Same thing with the SSB write off the government is trying to help the poor people of Belize unlike the previous government that gave write offs to the rich and then again no one said nothing..Novelos and all the others.

    It is a big deal because it is wrong.

    This way of politics is based on corruption for power, it should be illegal, and

    It should be stopped.

    I hope the media is not run by any political party, because people need to know what is going on in their country. Goverment should not have all the power.

    Politicians goes knocking on doors in Belize promising people wood to build homes, money to pay school fees, house rents etc, so the people falls right into the same pattern as poverty victims waiting for elections to rescue them.

    This is wrong, and should be stopped.

    Corozal Beauty, the media is doing a good job. We just hope that they keep improving and keep as neutral as possible.

    It doesn’t matter who does it, its still illegal and should never happen.

    I am no kind a “P” but the legalization of undocumented people in the country is a good move. The timing may be questionable but every thing politicians do is to gain political millage: I hope no one finds this surprising.

    Granting leagal status to immingrants is not a bad thing and could be an improvement to our tax base. We have many working without paying into the system but are still reaping the benefits of the country. Even if they are less than honorable there will be documentation of them now and if there are any leagal problems there is documentation to make them more easily identifyable.

    How many Belizeans live all over the world and strive to get legalized just the way these people are. It also does not have to be done at an office. These situations always create industries because there are those who are smart enough to assist those that need help in these situations for a fee.

    Wake up my people!

    I had to laugh at Corozal Beauty…. she mentioned about GOB helping poor people by writing off their SSB loan… IF they were poor they wouldn’t have made such a loan… Those people are all trying to satisfy themselves… look at the scandal that they have in SSB now… GOB is doing all in its powers to get the people again but they have failed miserably… They know they don’t have the Belizean people so they now are trying to bring undocumented people so they can gain their votes…. But the people will smart them out and, they know better.
