The long wait to be processed upon arrival in the country is a further instance of a clueless government, which is presiding over a crumbling society.
While all capable administrations have created enabling environments at ports of entry, especially during this holiday period and in the aftermath of the Covid-19 lockdown, the Rowley regime has put its gross ineptitude on full international display.
The refusal to treat with the legitimate concerns of immigration officers is similar to the government’s patent rejection of citizens’ concerns over poverty, jobs, crime, poor roads, weak public health sector and other pressing matters.

Until decisive and positive action is taken, Trinidad and Tobago would continue to collapse under the most inefficient and sloppy government in its history.
