Depite Wayne Monroe nan Bahamas panse li jwenn solisyon an pou pwoblèm ilegal ke peyi l ape fè fas jodi a. Li pwopoze ke gouvènman bahameyen an kòmanse tòtire ak touye moun yo k ap viv la san papye, imigran ayisyen espesyalman. Avoka bahameyen sa reyalize ke tòtire ak touye imigran ilegal, an patikilye Ayisyen, se yon mezi piman bouk; sepandan, li panse li pral sèvi kòm yon prevantif bay moun ki panse pou dezobeyi lalwa imigrasyon bahameyen. Dapre depite Monroe, "Si imigran ilegal, patikilyèman Ayisyen, te konnen nou te ap tòtire ak touye yo, yo pa ta vini"
Dapre dènye figi, apeprè 50,000 imigran ayisyen kounye a ap viv nan Bahamas. Wayne R. Munroe se Prezidan aktyèl ak pase nan Bahamas Bar Association. Yo te admèt li nan Bar nan Angletè ak Wales nan 1990. Li posede kabinè avoka Munroe & Associates, epi li pi popilè deyò nan Bahamas paske li te reprezante Anna Nicole Smith.
Deputy Monroe proposes torture, death to illegal Haitian immigrants
Deputy Wayne Monroe of Bahamas thinks he has the solution for the current illegal problem faced by his country. He proposes that the Bahamian government starts torturing and killing the people living there without paper, specially illegal Haitian immigrants. The Bahamian lawyer realizes that torturing and killing illegal immigrants, Haitians in particular, would be a harsh measure; however, he thinks it will serve as a deterrent to those thinking about breaking the Bahamian immigration law. According to Deputy Monroe, "If illegal immigrants, particularly Haitians knew we were going to torture and kill them, they would not come"
According to the latest figure, close to 50,000 Haitian immigrants are currently living in the Bahamas. Wayne R. Munroe is the current and past President of the Bahamas Bar Association and was admitted to the Bar of England and Wales in 1990. He owns the firm of Munroe & Associates, and is most famous outside of the Bahamas for his representation of Anna Nicole Smith.

Florida House of Representatives member Daphne Campbell has not been quiet since the November 1 policy passed by the Bahamas that seeks to deport thousands of Haitians who have lived and worked in the Bahamas for years (and children born of such parents in the country) back to Haiti. Campbell has since called for the State of Florida to boycott tourism to the Bahamas until they rework this immigration policy which she says discriminates against Haitian children. While Ms. Campbell has taken her protest up the U.S. political chain, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell has denounced her campaign as 'stupid' and 'baseless'.
Foreign Affairs Minister of Haiti, Duly Brutus, is leaning toward common sense and cooperation to defuse the current crisis in the Bahamas in regard to the treatment of children born in the Bahamas to Haitian parents. He has taken a different route than that of Ms. Daphne Campbell who is a Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives who has called for a boycott of tourism in the Bahamas following the implementation of the new Immigration policies
Haiti pressured to process more quickly Passports for Immigrant Descendents in the Bahamas
Foreign Affairs Minister Duly Brutus has expressed concerns about children born of Haitian parents in the Bahamas. Photos have appeared of immigration officers seizing children left unattended by caretakers.
New immigration policies are putting an increased burden on the Haitian government to process the required Haitian passports for descendents of immigrants to remain in the Bahamas.
Human rights groups say new immigration policies unfairly target Haitian undocumented migrants.
As part of the new wave of cracking down on illegal immigration in the Bahamas, specially toward Haitians, these two Haitian nationals have been apprehended by Immigration services in the Bahamas. As you can see, the second gentleman did not even have a chance to put shirt on his back before he was taken to a detention center where he will likely be deported to Haiti
Boycott of the Bahamas Targets Child Discrimination
The Haitian Bahamian Society of the Bahamas President Jetta Baptiste supports Florida politician Daphne Campbell, who is asking tourists to avoid the Bahamas, to stop them sending Haitian children to detention centers.
Campbell says the Bahamas will need to answer her delegation in person if they don't change their policies in one week.
Robert Dieudonne of the United Association of Haitians and Bahamians says the women have no ". . . authority to speak on behalf of Haitians and people of Haitian descent in this country."
Daphne Campbell who is a member of the Florida House of Representatives did not manage her words in regard to the current mass deportation of Haitians in the Bahamas. She came out strong to denounce this kind of discrimination against Haitians. Ms. Campbell calls for a boycott of the tourism industry in the Bahamas
As she repeated in a news conference given recently: "Boycott Bahamas! Boycott Bahamas to end discrimination against Haitian children!"
Daphne Campbell, a Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives recently spoke on Channel 7. She called to boycott Bahamas tourism for displaying a discriminating attitude towards Haitian children. As long as the immigration policy remains unchanged, arresting and deporting Haitian children born in Bahamas to Haiti, a land completely unknown to them, is unfair and injustice. She pledged to raise awareness around the world and has given Bahamian officials one week time to reverse the policy. However, the Bahamian Foreign Affairs and Immigration Minister Fred Mitchell dismissed her threats as amazing stupidity and rejected her claims about mistreatment of Haitian children as baseless allegation.
Here is a picture of two Children of Haitian descent as they are being deported from the Bahamas. These children are not Haitians and have never been to Haiti. They were born in the Bahamas from Haitian families who are in the country illegally.
Children Of Haitian Descent Handcuffed Deported From Bahamas.
While viewing the images of the children of Haitian descent, being sent cuffed to ordered out of the Bahamas, Daphne Campbell, a Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives, has given her strong response to the act. She has condemned it as unfair, injustice and cruel. Punishing an innocent child whose only knowledge is that of the Bahamian soil, and separating him from own family and deported to another country which he has never seen, is totally inhumane. This new policy attempt by the Bahamian authority to curb illegal immigrants in the country, has caused much dissent among the Haitian activists. As per Campbell's statement, until something is done to resolve the issue, all industries should ban the Bahamas.
These innocent children probably feel humiliated as they are walking and apprehended by an immigration officer in the Bahamas. They have become the center of attention as the many in the neighborhood are stopping what they are doing to watch.
As I recollect, It their age, I was very proud and this would have been devastating to me.
Remember, these children have done nothing wrong
Here is a picture of an immigration officer in the Bahamas humiliating two young Haitian immigrants during an operation in the Bahamas in October, 2014. The Immigration department of the Bahamas is assisted by the police to conduct Immigration Operation against Haitian in the Bahamas. Children, included those who were born in the Bahamas are rounded up and put in a bus to a detention center.
Are the Bahamas targeting Haitians for Deportation?
The Bahamas are becoming paranoid about a huge influx of illegal migrants from Haiti and have stiffened its immigration regulations.
Frederick Mitchell, Bahamian Foreign Affairs and Immigration Minister, says the overwhelming number of illegal aliens from Haiti threatens ". . . Bahamas national security . . . national identity . . . and . . . social stability."
Haitian-American anthropologist Bertin Louis says the Bahamas "has historically promoted a xenophobic policy toward Haitians in particular."
Here is a picture of several Haitian Children being taken into immigration custody in the Bahamas without their parents. One can imagine what is going on in the mind of these innocent children as the see authorities taking them to an unknown place without their loving parents.
These children were born in the bahamas by Haitian parents with no status. As a result, these children are citizens of the Bahamas but are treated as illegal immigrants, just like their parents. They are taken into immigration custody.
New Immigration policy In Bahamas least to detention of Haitian children
The new Bahamian policy that so widely affects the Haitian population living there is reminiscent of the country's history of xenophobic behavior towards foreigners in general and Haitians in particular. The recent raids to round up illegal Haitians in the Bahamas was similar to the 1967 clamp down undertaken by the government that led to the deportation of many Haitians. The potential impact for the Haitian community there now will be vast, as, in the capital of Nassau alone, some 50,000 Haitians reside.
According to Wikileaks, a U.S. diplomatic cable revealed that the the Bahamian government is anxious over the Haitian birth rate in the country
The Bahamian government is concerned that the number of Haitian children born to Haitian women in some parts of the country is almost equal to the Bahamian population and in some instances, it surpassed the main population. It is estimated that if the Bahamian government does not become more effective in returning the Haitians back to their country of haiti, the Bahamian population will be creolized in about ten years
