    I hope someone made sure they at least had food and water to go on their way.  I know, its against man's law, but I'm pretty sure we will have to answer to God if we don't help these people in some way.

    Yet another example of the abuse of moral integrity and human rights on the Cayman Islands. And you preach to us that you are all good christians, shame on you. Spend less time in church and actually help your fellow man.

    Pretty sure that Bill of Rights extends to everyone in the Cayman Islands, even those in territorial waters, so come November gov may find it needs to think again about the way it treats these poor souls in need……

        I would suggest that you go to Dr Foley and let him fit you up with a pair of glasses. Cayman has over extended hospitality to not only Cubans, but to almost everywhere. They have outnumbered us, and forhet about most of them being kind to us. They screw us in any way they can. Do you have any idea the amount of money that Government spent on the Tent City crisis? If Fidel did not put a stop to this we would have to be extending a piece on to Cayman. Not only did the Governmet help but so many good hearted folks from the general public. They left Cayman and there was very few who even communicated to say how they are getting along. Thats the reason why the word UNGRATEFUL surfaces so much.

          I agree completely with your post 15:36. I have seen the way our Immigration treats these people, even when they show up here illegally, they are treated with the upmost consideration and respect, and are allowed a lot of privileges over and beyond what they should expect or are entitled to.

          However, what do we get in return? trickery, ungratefulness, dishonesty and a confounding sense of entitlement! Not to mention, their involvement in certain other activities, that i am not at liberty to disclose on this forum.

          Nonetheless, we will continue to help them and assist them whenever they show up on our shores, for after all, we are all God's children and this is the Caymanian way.

          So let me close by saying this, to all of those poster that are bashing Cayman that we are  without compassion, etc, GET THE FACTS FIRST BEFORE RUNNING YOUR MOUTH ON THIS FORUM!

          Just saying!
