This is yet another statement about illegal immigrants in Sabah, Malaysia.


Step closer to solving illegals woe

Penampang: Sabah Barisan Nasional's clarion call for a speedy solution to the illegal immigrant problem has made some headway - Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar has been given the task.


Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Bernard Dompok on Friday said Syed Hamid was instructed by the Prime Minister to focus on this issue in Sabah when the matter was raised the Federal Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Dompok, who is Upko President, was speaking after chairing its Supreme Council meeting here.

Upko, he said, wants to continue ensuring the Federal Government gets to brass tacks on such issues as illegals, disparities in development, oil royalty rate for Sabah as well as Borneonisation of the civil service, all of which need urgent attention.

On the question of Sabah's representation in the Federal Cabinet he said they agreed that enough had been said.

"We want to move on," he said, pointing out that Upko's focus now would be on issues which have been on the backburner for a long time. The party had put forward its recommendations to the Prime Minister during his recent visit to Sabah as well as at the Federal Cabinet meeting earlier this week. Daily Express Newspaper.

I trully wonder when this issue can be solved. I remember what the founder of KadayanUniverse.Com and Kedayan.Org said in his personal blog

Part 3. There are topics that I avoided at the moment.

One of them is illegal immigrants issue. You probably not agree with my view. But to me, it just waste my thought and writing effort.

Should I start writing it and I can live for 100 years from now, I suspect the problem still persists. There are so much empty promises on how to dealt with illegal immigrants, yet these people already penetrate the whole system of the country.

To much “hoo - haa” in the state level but the final say comes from federal government which in turn, provide none of the solid solution to it since independence.

He may be sound a bit cynical about the whole issue. But wait, it has been 45 years since Sabah became part of Malaysia, and as the statement say, it JUST getting closer, it's yet to be there!
