Immigration group to hold first meeting

The Consultative Immigration Reform Working Group will hold its first public meeting this week.

The group, which will examine the issue of immigration policy, was appointed after a week of protests outside Parliament sparked by the controversial Pathways to Status legislation.

The first meeting will focus on the topic of children adopted from overseas by Bermudians and the rights and privileges that should be extended to them.

It will take place on Thursday between 6pm and 8pm at the Bermuda Public Services Union headquarters.

The working group has said that it plans to have its policy on the issue formulated by June 10 after consulting with stakeholders.

Anyone unable to attend the meeting can make submissions through the group's drop-box located on the ground floor of the Government Administration Building on Parliament Street, by calling 500-4664 or by e-mailing immigationbda@gmail.com
