I wish to express the greatest sympathy and support to the Haitian community both in Haiti and abroad. Regrettably Haiti seems plagued with bad luck and this is yet another chapter in its tragic history. It is gratifying to see how the world and many in the Bahamas have reacted so supportively to assist.
I wish also to congratulate and applaud the Prime Minister and the FNM Government in releasing illegal Haitian nationals for the time being, providing them with temporary residency status, and also stopping any further raids and repatriation exercises.
This is the rational, sensible and humanitarian thing for the Bahamas to do. It is a responsible reaction to this crisis which is affecting not only the people in Haiti but so many outside. It would be inhuman and degrading for the Bahamas to continue to engage in such exercises and to do so would only bring down the ire of the entire civilized world on the Bahamas.
It is the Christian thing to do!
Again, Mr. Ingraham should be applauded.
What Mr. Ingraham has done will go down in the annals of Bahamian history.
