    Where is the evidence to suggest Jamaicans are joining ISIS and if there is no tangible evidence Mr. John Kelly should be careful of how he tries to associate people of other countries with terrorist. Nationwide as a media house should make sure to fully investigates allegations before carrying it. Outside of Asia and the middle east America has more nationals than any other nation joining ISIS. Mr. John Kelly need to point that out. Nationwide do a full job and not a half job.
