Dominica’s PM: ‘Xenophobia Should Have No Place In Caribbean’

Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said Monday xenophobia should have no place in the Caribbean, where the countries may have to take turns helping one another.

Skerrit, who spoke to CNC3 News, was asked to respond to some citizens in Trinidad and Tobago who reacted negatively to a call last week by Prime Minister Keith Rowley for T&T to open its homes to displaced Dominicans.

While the majority of locals welcomed any suggestion of aid to Dominica, Rowley’s appeal was also followed by some xenophobic and racist remarks, mostly visible on social media.

Many of the comments appeared to be politically motivated.

Skerrit said yesterday there would always be those who will look to politicise and he would not pay attention to negative comments from anywhere.
