“Mister President I wonder if some of the senators who got up to speak knw what this motion is about. This is a loan motion for food. Food. Why would it take speech after speech to debate the provisos of food for people who will be hungry, literally hungry? Food. But they can’t help themselves Mister President. They say this on Facebook and they said this on radio. Who said what? Who? Who is dissatisfied with food distribution in Belize given the COVID-19 pandemic situation? We have been intentionally praised and recognized for our food distribution campaign. Who? So it is so easy to come here and put facelessness to namelessness and say that not everybody is happy and we need to do this and we need to do that and we need to think about people who are border jumpers maybe we need to provide more for them so that they are not force to go across the border. Blah, blah, blah. All because you cannot say that this is a loan motion that is worth and that you accept it. If at times you can’t really see that then just shed up and sit down because when you get up and you speak all you do is speak foolishness. We barrowing ten million dollars and we said half of that will be on awareness campaign you would have heard why aren’t you spending the majority of it on food. We don’t need any awareness campaign. Why not food. So we spend the most of it on food. Why not an awareness campaign? Let me tell you say something unless you have been living under a rock for the last four or five months and unless you will admit that you are not seeing people the world over dying because f COVID 19, you really need more awareness. Do we really need to be told how much serious COVID-19 is? Senator Salas called for mass campaign. I would disagree. I would say put non for that and put all of it for food, for food. You talk about border jumpers and you don’t know the purpose for that. They are criminals, selfish criminals. You jump the border and we say over there is dangerous and you come back over here, selfish criminals that is what you are. Yes. When people Southside Belize City sell marijuana you don’t say well that is their only means of survivals so they must be given a pass. We call them criminals.”
