Josepha: Necessity does not justify illegality

Minister JosephaWILLEMSTAD – Our needs on the local labor market for certain specialties does not justify illegal aliens here in Curacao. This is what the Minister of Labor, Sherwin Josepha said during the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers. “We have to see how to solve this problem in a legal way in which we find people with specialties that we need in our labor market. Or we have to prepare our people for the future. We have to also start training our people who have qualifications that we don’t need at this moment and train them in something that is needed in the labor market,” according to the Minister.

Origin of this explanation is the continues checkpoints done by immigration authorities in which they arrest illegal aliens. Authorities are constantly arresting foreigners who do not have a permit to be on the island. “Necessity does not justify illegality,” Minister Josepha emphasized.
