PR quandary continues

Cayman’s Permanent Residency issue stretches on and there’s no clear word from government on when a decisive position will be taken to address the growing mountain of applications. Around nine-hundred people are waiting for a decision, a situation created by the 2013 revision of the Immigration Law and further compounded by a court ruling last year calling for a review of the current system. That review is complete, but Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin has refused to make it public and nor has he taken a decision on a way forward.
Home Affairs Chief Officer Wesley Howell acknowledges the situation is a problem, but assures it is being addressed.
“I am sure it is going to be addressed. At this point I cannot speak to the timing or what the methods will be to deal with issues that have been highlighted with the current system for PR grants, but I know it is being addressed,” Mr Howell says.

Opposition MLAs have suggested Cayman may once again be faced with mass status grants, similar to that of 2003.
