Datuk SP Joseph Pairin Kitingan has indicated 2011 as the target for the country to rid the country of all illegal problems. According to him, the "reasonable time frame (set) would enable Malaysia to discuss with its neighbours, particularly The Philippines and Indonesia ".
Is the time set reasonable and achieveable? No body is talking of solving the problem holistically. This writer seeks answers as to how they intend to stop these illegals coming back to Sabah? You may be able to flush out these immigrants, according to the DPM to number some 300,000 in Sabah. But how many will seep back through the security sieve to Sabah? What is to be done to those "illegals" holding My-Kads?
