Statement By Fred Mitchell MP Minister Of Foreign Affairs And Immigration On Reports About Comments Of The OAS Secretary General
Statement By Fred Mitchell MP Minister Of Foreign Affairs And Immigration On Reports About Comments Of The OAS Secretary General Yesterday it was reported in the press of Jamaica that during a visit to Jamaica, the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS) Jose Miguel Inzulza made comments about the immigration policies of The Bahamas government. The report in indirect speech said that the Secretary General had referred to "round ups" in The Bahamas of Haitians.

Last evening, I instructed the Ambassador to the OAS Dr. Elliston Rahming to make an immediate call to the Secretary General for an urgent clarification of this report. I am to meet the Secretary General (SG) in Washington shortly.

I did not propose prior to now to make any public comment about the content of that proposed meeting because the concerns raised earlier by the SG had been raised in camera with our officials. I am advised that the Assistant Secretary General was briefed fully on the policies and by extension the organization. Therefore any suggestion of the round up of people should not have been expressed from that office.

Obama to immigration critics in Congress: "Pass a bill"
Obama to immigration critics in Congress: Pass a bill President Obama on Thursday defended the actions he's taking to shield about 5 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally from deportation as "lawful" and consistent with what his predecessors have done.

"I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law," the president said. "But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President - the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican presidents before me - that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just."
