A former National Security Minister is applauding the prime minister for his announcement to waive immigration restrictions so that Dominicans left homeless in the wake of Hurricane Maria can find shelter in T&T.

Gary Griffith says he is confident that all measures will be in place to allow for the integration of Dominican nationals into this country.

He believes the move poses no threat to the safety and well-being of this country's citizenry.

Griffith says the PM's call for persons to open their homes must not be used to gain political mileage.
