North America is continuing to rid the country of foreign criminals by sending them back to their countries of origin and over the past six months, some 65 Bahamians were deported.

News Americas recently reported that more than 88,000 criminal immigrants were deported back to Latin America and the Caribbean over the past six months.

The problem here is that a lot of these countries blame their rising crime on these ex-criminals that have been returned, but may not have had much contact with the country prior to.

Therefore they have no identification with the country of birth, but more with the country of their parents, i.e. a person born in The Bahamas by Haitian parents who then moved to the United States.

This report noted that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation data obtained by NAN (North America News) show that from the beginning of the 2011 fiscal year in October last year to the end of March this year, 88,497 criminal “aliens” or migrants were deported back to their country of birth in the Latin/Caribbean region.

According to the article, a “criminal alien” is defined under U.S. immigration laws as a migrant who is convicted of a crime.

While the Latin America crew stop at 86,469, only 2,028 were sent back to the Caribbean.

It was noted that over the entire fiscal year 2010, from October 2009 to September 30, 2010 some 190,860 criminal migrants were deported.

In the report, those deported from the Caribbean were: the Dominican Republic which received the most criminal deportees, some 1,066. They were followed by Jamaica which received 528 since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2011. Trinidad and Tobago was third with 125 followed by Belize with 74, The Bahamas with 65 and Guyana with 64.
