Measures to end illegal immigration looms

Last updated on July 12, 2019

Par­lia­men­tary Port­fo­lio Com­mit­tee on Home Affairs has declared on Fri­day it is actu­al­is­ing mea­sures to cease ille­gal immi­grants flood­ing South Africa.

Com­mit­tee chair­per­son, Advo­cate Bon­gani Bon­go said his crew will in the next term focus on undoc­u­ment­ed migrants.

 

“The com­mit­tee will work with the Home Affairs Depart­ment to ele­vate out steps to halt ille­gal immi­gra­tion into the coun­try,” Advo­cate Bon­go said.

His asser­tion fol­lows the arrest and depor­ta­tion of 37 ille­gal immi­grants in Pre­to­ria.

The com­mit­tee is cog­nisant the arrest of ille­gal immi­grants char­ac­terise a frac­tion of the whole, announc­ing the Com­mit­tee hopes the depor­ta­tion will act as a deter­rent to end­ing ille­gal flood­ing of humans into the coun­try.

“We have to dis­cour­age ille­gal immi­gra­tion into the coun­try at all times.”

In con­trast, stat­ed Bon­go migra­tion must man­i­fest inside the con­text of inter­na­tion­al and nation­al law.

It is on this basis the Com­mit­tee wel­comes the arrest and depor­ta­tion of these ille­gal immi­grants, “ said Advo­cate Bon­go whilst wel­com­ing the arrests in the cap­i­tal city.

He said migra­tion is the actu­al­i­ty that all coun­tries need to receive and lever­age for improve­ment and eco­nom­ic growth.

“We must report each man or woman inside the bound­aries of South Africa to make sure they keep per­fect records.

Doc­u­men­ta­tion will also allow gov­ern­ment and non-gov­ern­men­tal groups at all ranges to lay­out and to recog­nise how to allo­cate the assets they have,” Advo­cate Bon­go said.

“We also know of the inef­fi­cien­cies with­in the Depart­ment of Home Affairs.

We must resolve them to make sure we do not put migrants in the dis­ad­van­taged posi­tion when apply­ing for doc­u­men­ta­tion,” Advo­cate Bon­go emphases.

Advo­cate Bon­go said the Com­mit­tee joint­ly with Home Affairs Depart­ment inside the safe­ty clus­ter need to start anti­cor­rup­tion tech­niques in oppo­si­tion to alle­ga­tions of bribery.

“The com­mit­tee will mon­i­tor plans to make sure cer­ti­fied migrants law­ful­ly get doc­u­ments,” added Advo­cate Bon­go.
