HUMAN Resources Minister M. Saravanan has called legalising undocumented immigrants in the workforce a “stupid idea”.
The Tapah MP said the best course of action is to deport the immigrants to their country of origin.
“It is a ‘stupid’ idea to give, when someone comes illegally to your country, you must deport them. If illegals come to your country (and) you legalise them, you will have more and more illegals coming to the country.
“We should not do anything that encourages illegals to come to our country,” he told a press conference after launching a national forum entitled Human Capital Migration and its Impact on Sabah today.
Also present was HRD Corp board of directors chairman Jamil Salleh.
Meanwhile, Saravanan voiced his concerns over migration, especially involving young people from Sabah to other states in search of better job opportunities.
He said in 2020 alone, some 45,900 people from Sabah moved out of the state.
“The ministry is committed to working with all parties in Sabah to develop and implement policies that will attract high-value investments and create new opportunities for skilled talents and knowledge workers in the state.
“The ministry will continue to introduce initiatives that can help Sabah folk upskill, reskill, cross-skill and multi-skill through our agency HRD Corp. This will be complemented by programmes implemented by the Social Security Organisation, Skills Development Fund Corporation and TalentCorp,” he said. – Bernama, June 16, 2022.
