WHEREAS, the Cayman Islands is a very small country of a total of 100 square miles with limited infrastructure; WHEREAS, thousands of native Caymanians of varying qualifications are currently unemployed; WHEREAS, hundreds of school leavers per annum need to be given the opportunity to find employment in their native country; WHEREAS, nine thousand (9,000) Caymanians/residents are on welfare; WHEREAS, native Caymanians are outnumbered or soon to be, in their native country, producing feelings of insecurity and tension between themselves and expatriates; and WHEREAS, native Caymanians do NOT wish for a repeat of the 2003 Caymanian Status fiasco by the United Democratic Party government cabinet in which almost three thousand (3,000) persons were recklessly and indiscriminately granted Caymanian status. With the addition of the dependents of the status grant holders, the total actual figure could have been in the vicinity of twelve (12) thousand status grants. We the undersigned petition the Premier and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the Cayman Islands TO REFRAIN from bringing a bill before the Legislative Assembly for the extension of Gainful Occupational Licenses ( work permits) from seven (7) years to ten (10) years, allowing applications for Permanent Residency at year eight (8) of their Gainful Occupational license. Maintain the original intent of the Rollover seven (7) year period.
