Caribbean American legislator critical of Trump’s plan to deport illegal immigrants

first_imgNEW YORK, CMC – Caribbean American Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke has strongly criticized United States President Donald T. Trump’s plan to deport millions of undocumented Caribbean and other immigrants.“We have a Bigot-in-Chief who is overstepping his authority in his role as president pushing to deport immigrants from America,” Clarke, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).“It’s clear that he has one objective: to whitewash America. But that’s not who America is; we are a nation built by immigrants. I will continue to push back on Trump as he tries to instill fear in and bully our immigrant neighbours, friends and family,”.Clarke, the representative for the predominantly Caribbean 9th Congressional District in Brooklyn, New York, said as a second-generation Jamaican American, “I know how immigrants contribute to our local and national economies by working jobs that pay taxes while also adding to the cultural fabric of our communities, making America the country we know and love today”.Clarke said her legislation, the Dream and Promise Act, which recently passed the US House of Representatives, will provide 2.5 million beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS), among others, a pathway to citizenship and the opportunity for legal residency.“We must urge our colleagues in the Senate to also pass this historic legislation,” she said.Late Monday night Trump tweeted that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency will next week “begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he tweeted.But a US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told ABC TV News that the deportations described by Trump are not imminent.Separately, however, a Trump administration official said that enforcing final deportation orders “is a top priority”.Clarke, other elected officials and immigration advocates, say since taking office, Trump has deported more Caribbean and other immigrants than any other president in recent American history.last_img read more

Guyana, T&T make losing starts in Gold Cup

first_imgGuyana defender Matthew Briggs defends against United States forward Tyler Boyd in the first half of group play in the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament at Allianz Field. Credit: Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports ST PAUL, Minnesota, CMC – Minnows Guyana tasted defeat in their historic CONCACAF Gold Cup debut here Tuesday night when they went down 4-0 to powerhouse and co-host United States.The loss was one of two on the night for the English-speaking Caribbean in Group D at Allianz Field after Trinidad and Tobago suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Panama in the marquee match-up.United States top the group ahead of Panama on goal difference with three points, with Guyana and T&T languishing at the bottom without a point.There was hope Guyana could spring a surprise on their far superior opponents and that dream stayed alive when they trailed only 1-0 at half-time through Paul Arriola’s 28th minute strike.However, the floodgates opened in the second half to erase any doubt over the result. Tyler Boyd doubled USA’s lead in the 51st minute, beating goalkeeper Akel Clarke from 13 yards out after being picked out on the edge of the box by Michael Bradley’s searching cross.And just four minutes later, the result was beyond dispute when defender Terrence Van Couten headed away Arriola’s cross into the box only for the ball to ricochet from Gyasi Zardes’s head into the back of the nets.Boyd got his brace nine minutes from the end when he curled in a superb right-footer from the edge of the 15-yard box.Guyana will now face Panama in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday.T&T, meanwhile, remained in the contest up until half-time with neither team able to break the stalemate.Eight minutes following the resumption, however, Armanda Cooper put Panama ahead with a sliding finish and Edgar Barcenas provided further sorrow for T&T nine minutes from the end when he beat Marvin Phillip after the previous two shots had been saved by the custodian.T&T take on United States in Cleveland in their second outing also on Saturday.last_img read more

Potential Brexit impacts see 888 assess Gibraltar operations

first_img EU research agency demands urgent action on loot box consumer safeguards July 29, 2020 Share FTSE250 operator 888 Holdings (888) is considering alternatives to Gibraltar as its operational centre, should the British Overseas Territory be negatively impacted or restricted by Brexit.The governance of 888, are the first industry stakeholders to publicly view Brexit as a potential ‘future risk’ for its operations. Publishing its 2016 annual report, 888 detailed that Gibraltar’s current licensing remit remains ‘unclear’ with regards to servicing European gaming jurisdictions.Last month, 888 CEO Itai Frieberger outlined the importance of growth within European regulated markets as a key dynamic of 888’s ongoing strategy and corporate value.Looking forward, a Gibraltar Remote Gambling License may not be sufficient to fulfil 888’s regulatory strategy as certain EU member states could potentially deem Gibraltar regulatory provisions as ineligible once the UK officially leaves the European Union.“The proposed status of Gibraltar in relation to the United Kingdom as a result of ‘Brexit’ is at present unclear,” 888’s 2016 annual report details“If 888 were to remain registered, licenced and operating in Gibraltar in these circumstances, its ability to rely on EU freedom of services/establishment principles in supplying its services within the EU will be limited.”The combination of low corporate taxes (1% cap) and Gibraltar’s full membership to the EU have seen the UK independent territory become the operational home to more than 30 online betting operators including; GVC, BetVictor, 888 Holdings and 32Red. With over 5000 sector employees the online gambling industry remains Gibraltar’s largest employer (population 32,000).Last January, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the UK and Gibraltar should be deemed as ‘single entity’ in their freedom to provide business services, making it unlikely that the EU will provide any dispensation for the overseas territory to access the EU common market.
