The south east Asian nation of Malaysia does not tolerate illegal immigration and systematically arrests, imprisons and deports all those who come into its territory illegally—an absolutely correct policy which, if implemented by any European country, would be condemned by anti-whites as “bigoted.”
According to an article in the New Strait Times newspaper, the district Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) “intercepted and detained two dozen immigrants leaving the country illegally via a rat lane off the waters” on Saturday, August 19, 2017.
Director Maritime Captain Romli Mustafa told the newspaper that a patrol boat on duty had stopped a “suspicious vessel” at 2.15pm, and had found 24 Indonesians, including its skipper, aged between 10 months until 54 years old, on board.
“The skipper and two passengers possessed identity documents but did not have the entry and exit stamps from Malaysian Immigration Department.
“The rest failed to produce any valid identity documents,” he said in a statement.
The skipper also committed other offences like overloading of passengers, carrying passengers without providing them with safety vests and using an illegal coastal route, the New Strait Times added.
“Those detained have been brought to the Tawau MMEA jetty for investigations under the Immigration Act 1959/63, and Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants (Atipsom) Act 2007,” Captain Mustafa said.
Such interventions are common. As reported in the Bangladeshi BDNews news service, last week the “Malaysian authorities detained more Bangladeshis in a drive on a market at Jalan Silang in Kuala Lumpur conducted as part of the ongoing crackdown on illegal immigrants.”
The market is known as ‘Bangla Market’ as it is frequented mostly by Bangladeshi workers living in Kuala Lumpur.
A Bangladeshi businessman in the area said the number of detained Bangladeshis would be 50 to 60, including some women.
Malaysian departments of immigration and customs and Kula Lumpur City Corporation jointly conducted the raid for around two and a half hours. Kota Roya Bangladeshi Traders’ Association President Rashed Badal told bdnews24.com that the authorities checked whether the businesses at the market were following the laws. “They have warned us against employing illegal immigrants,” he said. “They detained 50 to 60 Bangladeshi customers during the drive,” he added.
After hundreds of Bangladeshis were detained in the crackdown on illegal immigrants in Malaysia last month, Bangladesh Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Nurul Islam said on July 16 that “Malaysia has suspended the crackdown because of the Bangladesh government’s initiative.”
Bangladeshis made up nearly half of the 1,035 foreign nationals detained on July 1, the first day of Malaysia’s crackdown on illegal immigration, according to the local media.
