NO to BN Reason 99: Amnesty for illegal immigrants is asking for trouble

Do you accept and allocate a room in your lovely home for a strange intruder to your compound?

The answer is definitely NO.

Why BN government offered numerous amnesty programs to illegal workers? I am not an xenophobia and racist, but the rationale behind these amnesty programs are beyond my comprehension and defies my commonsense.

Q1: Why there are 2-3 million illegal immigrants hiding in a small country like Malaysia?

A1: This is telling me 200,000 immigration, police and army personnel are either sleeping or corrupt to the core.

Q2: Why there are countless of amnesty programs like Malaysia annual cheap sale?

A2: This is telling me either the situation is out of control or someone is profiteering from the exercise.

Q3: Why the canning punishment for employer who hires more than four illegal workers never being enforced by our court? A couple thousands of employers should be canned for violating our stringent labor law, but not a single case was reported.

A3: This is telling me again the police and court systems are corrupt to the core. A mockery of Malaysia law without the enforcement.

BN government is inviting more illegal immigrants to our land because every alien knows RM10,000 will “kautim” (settle everything) under the routine bleaching exercise.

Worker amnesty program used as political tool: Report

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Amid the confusion of procedures and fees for Malaysia’s amnesty program for migrant workers, Indonesian permanent residents in Malaysia have reportedly been offered a Malaysian citizenship identity card.

“There are offers of Malaysian citizenship identity cards addressed to Indonesian permanent residents amid [the implementation of] the amnesty program,” Migrant Care Malaysia executive director Alex Ong posted on the Amnesty 6P Malaysia page on Facebook on Tuesday.

He said blue identity cards that were on offer would bump up Indonesian permanent residents’ status, but “the status of Indonesian citizenship will be stripped”.

Permanent residents hold red identity cards, while Malaysian citizens carry blue cards.

The Malaysian government began registering illegal migrant workers by recording their fingerprints on Monday under the amnesty program, which aims to control the number of foreigners seeking menial jobs unwanted by Malaysians.

The Malaysian government has withdrawn criticism due to its lack of clarity about the program, leading to the presence of brokers, bogus agencies and appointed agencies who charge extra fees.

“Indonesian migrant workers should not be tempted by the offer, which is untrue and carries high risk,” Ong told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday, adding that there were about 300,000 Indonesian permanent residents in Peninsular Malaysia alone.

He said he did not know how much Indonesian permanent residents would have to pay for a blue identity card today, but in the early 1990s something similar happened, and blue identity cards cost between RM 5,000 (US$1,682) and RM 10,000.

News portal malaysiakini.com reported on Tuesday that woman who held a red identity card attained Malaysian citizenship less than four hours after its previous report that she appeared as a newly registered voter in the Election Commission (EC) online verification system while she was still registered as a permanent resident in the National Registration Department (NRD) online system.

Permanent residents do not have the right to vote.

Less than four hours later, the woman, identified as Mismah, appeared in the same NRD system as a citizen and had collected her blue identity card, the news portal reported.

Allegations of foreigners being illegally registered as voters to shore up support for certain political parties have been continually raised by opposition parties, but constantly denied by the EC, it reported.

“I think the list of PR names in the NRD’s website was the old one and not updated,” EC chairperson Abdul Aziz Yusof told malaysiakini.com.

He reiterated that only Malaysian citizens could apply to register as voters.

“[Permanent residents] are not allowed to vote unless the Home Ministry has approved their application for Malaysian citizenship. Otherwise, their application to register as voters will be automatically rejected by the EC screening system after checking their status with NRD Agency Link-Up System [Alis],” he said as quoted by malaysiakini.com.

Head of information, social and cultural affairs at the Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Suryana Sastradiredja, said he had heard about the offer but he doubted that such deals were really taking place, as people with red identity cards were generally older, and permanent residents were currently not at risk of being deported.

“It is too early to offer blue identity cards at this moment because no one is being forced to return home. What happens now is that [Indonesian migrant workers] can return home voluntarily if they wish,” he told the Post.

Former National Registration Department (NRD) officer told the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI)About 100,000 blue identity cards were given to immigrants in Sabah in 1993 (Projek IC).

The late Tan Sri Megat Junid Megat Ayub, who was then the deputy home affairs minister, had ordered him to issue NRD receipts enabling illegal immigrants to vote in the 1994 state election.

It has been confirmed finally (even Tun M himslef) that the EC and NRD had been directly involved in the issuance of Mycards and registration of aliens as voters illegally. The highly arrogant, corrupted, abusive, repressive and oppressive UMNO controlled BN would not have been able to rule for 55 years without direct assistance from the EC and NRD and the manipulation of election results through ballot swappings. Bersih and all NGOs must now step up their pressure on the chairman of EC and his deputy. Both must quit their post if they still cannot implement the Rakyat ‘s demand for a clean, free and fair election within the next 14 days.
