Caribbean teachers recruited to work in the United States two years ago, are protesting the New York City Department of Education’s failure to keep its promises.

Housing assistance, reimbursement for travel and a pathway to permanent residency were among the promises not kept according to an article in the Trinidad Guardian.

Instead, teachers were given several incorrect visas and now those whose children came with them  and are now turning 21, are facing deportation.
