On the bread line
People wait in line to buy bread at Ortiz bakery after the passing of Hurricane Maria, in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico,
Thursday. As of Thursday evening, Maria was moving off the northern coast of the Dominican Republic with
winds of 120 mph . The storm was expected to approach the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas late
Thursday and early yesterday.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley
has proposed that this country
open its doors and waive immi-
gration restrictions so that Do-
minicans left homeless in the
wake of Hurricane Maria can
ind shelter in T&T.

restrictions? Help within guide-

immigrants and rising horri ic
crimes occurring every day?
