People of Haitian descent in the Bahamas are being targeted and detained in high numbers since a change in the country’s laws on citizenship. The stricter Bahamian immigration policy echoes stances in other countries in the region, which attempt to stem the flow of Haitian immigrants. Immigration officers in school buses have been rounding up those without passports or work permits. Hundreds have been swept up since the new policy requiring everyone to hold a passport, even if they were born in the Bahamas, took effect.
