(CaribWorldNews.com): Over 50,000 convicted Caribbean-born criminals, who have called the U.S. home for many years, have been shipped back to the Caribbean in the past decade under tough U.S. immigration laws, a CaribWorldNews analysis of new Department of Homeland Security data reveals. The number of criminal deportees sent back to the Caribbean between the decade of 1999 and 2008 totaled 50,589, DHS statistics released this month and analyzed by CWNN reveal. Last year, the number was at 4,343, a slight increase from 2007, when the total was 4,315. However, it was an improvement from 2005, when the total rose to 5,149, the highest for the decade.

    I know of one Caymanian man who got deported from the U.S. around two years ago, he migrated to New York as a young boy and lived there for over 30 years, im sure there are other Caymanians that  have been deported from the U.S. over the years as well.It would be intresting to find out the number of Caymanians that  have been deported over the last 10 yrs., and also if any was in this recent batch, i wonder if CNS could get some figures for it’s readers?

      I wonder how many of those deportees from neighbouring Caribbean islands ended up in Cayman? I would hazard a guess that there are quite a number of recycled criminals that we are presently entertaining in Cayman.

        This is one of the reasons visa requirements were introduced. Now apparently we are supposed to pretend that there are no valid reasons for them.

    Hi Anonymous,

    Are you kidding with that question? Of course there is a WAY to know, but will we know – NO. Why you ask – because the reporting in all of our news feeds is not reporting, it is RELAYING. Reporters should/would ask why and probing questions on stories they cover. Ever watch News27 – its like a kids newscast, just tell a story but never ask any question that would come to any persons mind. Ever see editorial in compass – what a joke – try writing a story and send it to them, they will put it in their paper verbatim – spelling mistakes and all.

    There is no such thing as reporting in Cayman. CNS is decent because at least they update their website and relay stories without delay.

    Oh and by the way – the day we get a real reporter down here – he will be run off the island real quick, there are way too many skeletons in Caymans closet for anybody to be asking probing questions. Ever hear of David Marchant in Bermuda?

    Break the rules whilst working in a foreign country and you can expect to get thrown out.

    Same for Cayman…commit a crime here and you get thrown out.

    Simple really..yet so many still do it.

    This is what we should be doing. Instead of housing convicts here and trying them here. But no…once again spending money we don’t have.

    Is there any way to know if any were Caymanians? Or returned to Cayman?
