Assistant Director of Immigration, Rudolph Ferguson backed a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs concerning members of the public questioning the immigration status of persons in the country.

Ferguson flanked by Minister of Labour and Immigration, the Hon. Keith Bell told reporters, “we want the general public to understand that the immigration department, indeed immigration officers, are the sole authority to interview and invite persons to be interviewed for any breaches we believe may occur. Immigration officials are the keepers of our borders. So any other person that is out there doing anything that is untoward we say to the general public right now to refer all those matters to the Immigration Department.”

Assistant Director Ferguson says officers will identify themselves properly before making inquiries and that persons should take every precaution.
