#‎MorningBlend‬ on February 5, 2015: Foreign Affairs & Immigration Minister Fred Mitchell speaks out on the controversy surrounding plans to have schools ensure that all non-Bahamian students have the relevant permits to reside in The Bahamas, and thus attend schools in this country. He explains that this is not an additional permit, beyond the residency permit.
Mitchell also addresses the long delays for those seeking the new “Belonger’s Permit” for individuals born in The Bahamas who have applied for citizenship, and the fact that the legislation to allow for this has not been before Parliament as yet. This, despite the fact that a “significant number” of people have applied for it since the new Immigration Policy came into effect on November 1. Mitchell says at best it may be about 4 weeks before the Department of Immigration can begin to issue the permits.
