Kamina Johnson Smith Minister

Fewer Jamaicans Deported from T&T

The number of Jamaicans denied entry into Trinidad and Tobago has declined by 64-percent since March last year.

That’s according to Foreign Minister, Senator Kamina Johnson-Smith.

Last year, Minister Johnson-Smith reported that 326 Jamaicans had been denied entry into the twin-island republic in 2015.

Many Jamaicans have also complained about the poor conditions in which they’re kept while awaiting deportation to Jamaica, after being denied entry.

Minister Johnson-Smith says the complaints have decreased.

She was speaking this morning at a media conference at the Ministry, highlighting what she calls ‘significant achievements’ over the past 10 months.
