Public invited to immigration sessions

The Consultative Immigration Reform Working Group is inviting the public to three follow-up sessions to discuss the formulation of recommendations on mixed status families.

The first session was held at Berkeley Institute yesterday with the aim of solidifying definitions, answering questions and gauging public opinion on cases where members of the same family have been granted different statuses in Bermuda.

Chairman of the group William Madeiros said the meeting was well attended and the input from the public “invaluable”.

He said: “I would like to take this time to thank my fellow group members for the tremendous effort they have put forth over the last six months. Everyone has taken time away from their families and other commitments in order to ensure we do what is best for Bermuda.”

The group will be working to formulate their recommendation on mixed status families after public consultation.

Follow-up sessions are:

• Tuesday, October 11, at Francis Patton School

• Wednesday, October 12 at Berkeley Institute

• Thursday, October 13 at Dalton E. Tucker.

All meetings will be from 6pm to 8pm.

Submissions to the Consultative Immigration Reform Working Group can be made via the group's dropbox located on the ground floor of the Government Administration Building on Parliament Street, by calling 500-4664 or emailing

More sessions on immigration will be held in the coming month
