  1. MR President Ramotar how will u stop migration when these Guyanese want US currency so bad that they intend on breaking laws to go to the US for it.
    Mr President the business people in Guyana local and foreign are working out everything in Guyana in US currency but Guyana are working and being paid in Guyana $$..
    Mr President do you not see what the business community is doing to poor Guyanese .
    The rampant crime and corruption is another factor Guyanese are running from Guyana.
    Mr President kindly find the balls and hire the right people who wont fear their US visas be revoked to take the fight to criminals.
    Mr President take a look see how small Guyana population is and think how the next Guyanese is just a sitting Guyanese in waiting to be the next victim of these marauding criminals who come to your home and business place in broad daylight to take what you have.
