Malaysia Will Be Free Of Illegal Immigrants From Aug 31, Says Immigration Dept
Starting August 31, the Immigration Department has vowed to clean up the country from illegal immigrants. On top of that, even employers who hire and harbour them would be detained.
The department is looking to go into overdraft from the date, to meet its goal of an illegal-immigrant-free Malaysia.
According to The Star, Director general of the Immigration Department, Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said,
“We have started the voluntary surrender programme or better known as 3+1 which enable all illegal immigrants in the country to return to their countries of origin voluntarily.”
He also added that the illegal immigrants still have the chance to surrender until Aug 30, before a firmer approach would be taken against them.
Op Mega, which was launched on July 1 to curb the presence of illegal immigrants, has managed to apprehend more than 3,000 illegal immigrants nationwide as of now.
