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.Follow us on Social Media
