Immigration Row Erupts in the Caribbean

The often delicate diplomatic relationship between the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica is facing a new test this week in what appears to many to be a political standoff. 

Thirteen Jamaican nationals were denied entry to Trinidad’s Piarco Airport. Reports of the shoddy treatment they received at the hands of Trinidad’s immigration officials has led for a call to boycott Trinidad and Tobago goods.
