Poets Corner: Registration Law
Published on February 15, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

Registration Law

By Abdulmjeed K. Nunez

There needs to be a correction
We’ve been saying re-registration
When in fact its registration
Void of politicians
We need to stop the procrastination
Blaming cost is and over exaggeration
COMMONERS has long given the solution

Here’s how you fix immigration
Everyone can get a ninety-day stay from immigration
After ninety days you go back to your destination
All job applications are to be applied for from your homeland
When they come to Belize it’s for a vacation
Specialists will get first consideration
They will not take any jobs already being held by Belizeans
It has to be an area for which we have no specialization
A nuclear scientist, a factory to bake chips or Pringles
Canning factory like Del Monte for our people
Water melon juice purification to sell globally
These people will be given priority

To get a job you’ll need a resident permit
To get a resident permit you will need a workers permit
You’ll need more than money to get it
Every man jack and his brother needs to be registered
The cat and dog included
No strays, every living creature needs to be registered
From birth, so the state will know when you’re eighteen
No politicians need intervene

Primary residents must be registered
Any where you reside over ninety days is your primary residence
Whenever you move you deregister and register your new residence
It’s your duty as a citizen of this country
Registration is mandatory
You can’t be registered by any political party
Registration has to be done individually
With all required documentation
Even for your children information
Moving will be deemed as a crime without involving the state
All persons’ whereabouts must be known by the state

Police, customs, income tax must know everyone’s location
This is the makeup of the national security of the nation
This need to be made into law
This is the reason the system has so many flaws
Everyone would know their constituency
Since they’ve registered their primary residence already
Re-registration is manipulating the democracy
It needs to be mandated you register at the Police Formation you have residency
Ninety days and above will be your primary
Ninety days and under is secondary
There will be a shared national database for the ministry of national security
The state must have control
As it stands the politicians have control
