By NAN Staff Writer
News Americas, KINGSTON, Jamaica, Fri. Nov. 13, 2015: The Jamaican government will soon know the immigration and criminal histories of all nationals being sent back from the US to their homeland.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Ministry of National Security of Jamaica this week signed a memorandum of cooperation in Kingston that will enhance the two nations’ ability to share records containing immigration and criminal histories of Jamaican nationals being repatriated from the United States.
These records will help identify and classify individuals with criminal removal priorities in support of national security.
ICE has similar agreements with Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador.
U.S. Ambassador to Jamaica Luis G. Moreno and Peter Murcott Bunting, minister of Jamaica’s Ministry of National Security, participated in the signing ceremony at the Ministry of National Security’s headquarters.
