“On Saturday, the eleventh of August, 2012 CIB personnel visited the K.H.M.H. where they saw Lindy Aranda, twenty-nine years Honduran mason, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the left shoulder. Initial investigation reveals that at around 10:30 p.m., Aranda was riding his bicycle along with other friends on Faber’s Road heading towards Central American Boulevard. And upon reaching in front of St. John Vianney Primary School, he was approached by a fair-complexioned male person who pulled out a firearm and fired a single shot at him causing his injury. Aranda was treated and released from the hospital and we are still looking for that person.”

    He’s a human, I hope he recovers. But is he here legally, with a proper work permit? We have unemployed masons of Belizean birth, so why import more to increase poverty and unemployment here? I don’t get the GOB’s immigration strategy, if there is one other than selling visas and permits.
