Premier invites BIU President's participation in seeking resolution
Today the Premier and Minister of National Security the Hon. Michael Dunkley, JP, MP, sent correspondence to BIU President Chris Furbert seeking to resolve the current impasse regarding immigration reform.
In that letter the Premier said, “It has become clear from public statements and private discussions that most key stakeholders who have spoken about reforming immigration seem to agree on a few key tenets of reform:
- Dealing with children who are born in Bermuda or who arrived in Bermuda at a young age;
- Maintaining the integrity of mixed status families; and
- Addressing those who have been allowed to remain in Bermuda to this date for 20 years or more.

Andrew Simons – Bye-Election Candidate for Constituency #13: ‘Seniors need a champion’
The most important thing any government can do for its senior citizens is to protect their quality of life.
What is clear from all the people I’ve spoken with in recent years — seniors and their families, medical practitioners and health officials — is that seniors need watchdogs in the ranks of government to ensure that protection.
But seniors also need champions, those who will fight to make sure their concerns are addressed with action, not just words.
