Description:
British Labour MP Barbara Ross in an interview with anchor Mike Jarvis discusses the British immigration restriction and apparent discrimination against Caribbean immigrants into Britain.

He states that the Board of Management being established by the British Government for the British dependencies is to be renamed, correspondent Sandra Baptiste interviews Mark Lennox Boyd, Reuben Meade – Montserrat’s Chief Minister and Lavity Stoutt - British Virgin Islands Chief Minister on this issue. (07:46 – 10:48).
Exiled Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide Jean Bertrand Aristide is warning fleeing Haitian’s of the dangers of making the perilous sea voyage to Miami in an often fruitless search for US political asylum. He said that he was upset, and encouraged the refugees to mount local resistance to the de facto government. Correspondent Gary Allen looks at the welfare of Haitian refugees in Jamaica.

In Cuba some 900 Haitians are to be repatriated over the next 3 days. They are part of the group of over 1000 Haitians who arrived there last November. (13:04 – 13:12).
Correspondent Mike Jarvis reports that death row inmates in Jamaica’s St. Catherine’s prison are refusing to come out of their cells over a government decision to enforce a rule barring visitors from 11:00 am. The actions of the prisoner’s means that they are denying themselves access to food and baths. Human Rights activists in Jamaica say that enforcement of the rule effectively restricts lawyers from meeting with the inmates particularly now that they are being reclassified (13:13 – 14:06).
