LAWYERS who have been flooding the courts successfully blocking the expulsion of non-nationals want the Immigration Department to change its operations.
They have accused the department of abusing its power by attempting to deport non-nationals, some of whom were married to Barbadians, whose work permits might have expired or others whose only offence might be overstaying.
Attorney Samuel Legay, who has a reputation as the immigration lawyer, said that weekly he was filing injunctions in the High Court against the Immigration Department, chiefly for Guyanese and Jamaicans but also for other Caribbean nationals.
He complained about some of the situations in which the non-nationals were picked up, including the case of a woman married to a Barbadian whose young children were about to be sent out of the island.
