The Trump administration on Tuesday issued new guidelines that constitute a “sweeping rewrite” of Obama-era policies on immigration, greatly expanding the number of individuals that can be forcibly deported and further emboldening the current crackdown.
The memoranda on implementation (pdf) and enforcement (pdf) of President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration, which were dated Monday February 20, 2017, and published by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), were leaked to news agencies over the holiday weekend and sparked wide concern among immigrants and civil liberties organizations.

– Has no moral authority to judge any sitting govt
Since Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo’ has a remarkable legacy of failure to his name then he has no place awarding any grade to the performance of the APNU+AFC Government.

2013 Final Electoral Map, the government won by a 2 seat margin
1. Consider this argument. The Central Bank (CB) Governor has refused to print any more money for the Minister of Finance (MOF). The MOF needs printing to continue to pay civil servants and keep Government running. If the Government can’t pay the civil servants this month, all hell will break loose.

Guyana and Black History— High time to change the Story
By Yvonne Sam
We are currently in the month of February, traditionally the period when Black History Month is celebrated. The truth be told Guyanese do not need to worry in any way shape or form about negritude or history as both are being daily celebrated. To be clear and also frank, Guyanese in Guyana have failed to make the progress that they mouthed, spouted and voted for. In fact, it appears that they have fast forwarded backward. So let us forget about placating ourselves by celebrating Black History Month. We have not broken any stereotypes. We have made no progress.We just haven’t. Continue reading →
