Illegal immigrants problem not a priority to BN

Kota Kinabalu, Aug 5, 2010: SAPP Youth warns PBS not to think the public ignorant or gullible so as to believe the BN political mind games.

"Despite the bravado statement by PBS Secretary General, Henrynus Amin, the fact remains that BN is perceived by the public to still have huge vested interest in the continued illegal immigrant presence in the State," Youth Leader Edward Dagul said.

"When the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Datuk Seri Idris Jala, disclosed the fact that the illegal immigrants problem in Sabah was not one of the country's top six order of priorities, it clearly supported our worries all this time that the oft described "Mother of All Threats" issue in Sabah is actually a non-issue to Putrajaya.

"The illegal immigrants problem is a security issue and this should be treated as such. When we as Malaysians talk of Security breach which may lead to the eventual erosion of our sovereignty, this issue should be given top priority irrespective of the fact that the security breach occurred in Sabah or anywhere else in Malaysia.

"As pointed out by Henrynus Amin, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin had been vocal on the call for the BN government to resolve the issue by 2012. This was a well known fact to all especially the Prime Minister, Datuk Najib, who officiated the 2009 PBS Annual Congress.

"Who could believe that even PBS's and UPKO's top leaders as senior ministers in the Federal Cabinet could not get the Prime Minister's attention on this illegal immigrants issue which is a threat to national sovereignty? Have these leaders compromised State interests for their own benefits?

"The special laboratory set up in Sabah was an after-thought. This was done to "appease the growing frustration and public discontent in Sabah". By the time the results of the special NKRA laboratory is known, the next 13th General Elections is over. And BN parties like PBS and UPKO still dancing to the tune of the master as if this problem can be solved just by a few statements calling for BN action. They have conveniently forgotten that they are part of the BN government.

"BN has ignored the issue because they are having the support of PBS. It is this, i.e. PBS's collusion with UMNO, that has further eroded Sabah's rights and autonomy.


  1. The problem of these illegal immigrants in Sabah was never a concern of the federal govt ie. BN.

    This matter was often the topic of kopitiams in Sabah for decades and we know what the intentions were and are.

    THe only solution to this problem is to change the government, not only Sabah but the whole Malaysia.

    Pakatan Rakyat should allow SAPP to form the Sabah govt while they concentrate at toppling the corrupt BN govt in West Malaysia.

    We need to analyse the whole country's political, electoral, racial needs to come up with a comprehensive and agreeable condition for the peoples' trust and confidence.

    Should the people surrender to the wants of the federal masters..we will be forever in shit!

  2. govt still try to solve illegal immigrants problems. i hope this problem will be solve.

  3. Apa-apa pun, diharapkan isu PATI ini boleh diselesaikan sebelum masalah tersebut melarat.

  4. Not only SAPP concern about this case but also other party.. Here are on of it..

    PBS Wants Federal Government To Resolve Illegal Immigrant Problems In Sabah

    KOTA KINABALU, Aug 4 (Bernama) -- The Federal government must act now to resolve the problem of illegal immigration rather than later if the Barisan Nasional (BN) government were to appease the growing frustration and public discontent in Sabah.

    Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary-general Henrynus Amin said the inclusion of illegal immigration in the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) was necessary to compel enforcement agencies to produce results.

    A Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Datuk Seri Idris Jala had recently said that the issue of illegal immigration was not one of the country's six top priorities and therefore not included in the NKRA.

    Henrynus said PBS feared the non-inclusion of the illegal immigrant issue in the NKRA would reinforce public opinion that the federal government was not interested or lacked the political will to act.

    In this respect, he said PBS commended Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman for his foresight to have the special laboratory held in Sabah to signify the importance of the national security issues.

    "But the result of the laboratory must be disclosed now and acted upon. Otherwise, it may be seen as mere window dressing, or at best, an academic exercise," he said in a statement, here Wednesday.

    The special laboratory on foreign workers and illegal immigration involved participants from the relevant departments and agencies including the police, immigration, Attorney-General's Chambers, Election Commission, local authorities, district offices and non-governmental organisation (NGOs).

    PBS reiterated its support for the special laboratory as part of the party's initiative to bring the issue of illegal immigration to the national agenda, he said.

    Henrynus said PBS firmly believed the presence of a huge transient population in Sabah was a national problem which required national solutions and commitment.

    He said opposition propaganda were exploiting public fears of transient population by twisting and spinning the facts and the good intention of the government.

    He said by supporting the special laboratory, PBS was being unfairly accused of being responsible for the proposal to hire illegal immigrants.

    For the record, he said, the PBS President, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan, was interviewed by the special lab committee where he clearly stated PBS policy of zero tolerance on illegal immigration.

    He said Pairin did not mince his words when repeating his call for the issue of illegal immigrants to be resolved by 2012 and urged the authorities to include the issue in the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) in order to achieve results.

    Henrynus said personal statements in the press perceived to be contrary to PBS official stand would not nullify PBS resolve to find ways and means to end the perennial problem of illegal immigration.

  5. People also need to know their own role ... Do not just put the Burden on Govt shoulder, then you take it easy .. we must stand together to success in this plan ...

  6. is it because of there is no report about the government's efforts to eradicate illegal immigrants, then we conclude that the government does not concern with this problem??
    actually, is not necessary to tell media for every operation made by the state government.

  7. It will be baseless if the government tells the media on every operation. Operation may just be show. When caught some will be released with money.

    Look at passengers inside the local bus & boat transport then you can figure out. Don’t be surprised to find some of these are illegal immigrants.

    Look at those crimes like robberies, rapist, snatch thief, etc most of them are illegal and some of them have repeating entering into our country.
    If our security is strict how can those illegal repeating entering into our country.

    Knowing our government well, for the good of the peoples they may compare the above problem with third world countries. They may tell us we only get small number of illegals. But they will never compare with those countries where security is strict?

  8. Read today news "" on Mat Rampit.

    A self-confessed illegal racer, who wanted to be known as Justin, said he raced in remote areas in order not to pose a nuisance to others.
    Even the media able to interview an illegal racer but the police unable to trace them.

    So what do you think on illegal immigrants?

  9. Saya yakin kerajaan sedang berusaha tanggani hal ni so janganlah kita fikir yang bukan2.

  10. Apapun, semua pihak harus bekerjasama dan bukannya hanya tunding jari pada gov.

  11. I think you're true villager :)
    What for bising2 kan. hehehe

  12. never was, never is and never will be!! Secure voters for UMNO BN!

  13. 50 years ago and 50 years later will still be the same if we do not want changes.
    The poor will remain poor unless they have talent or good connection.
    The rich will become more richer.

  14. Re phrase on the above

    Now & 50 years later will still remain the same if we do not want changes.

    The poor will remain poor unless they have talent or good connection. The rich will become richer.

  15. Actually it is the priority of BN but to keep them here becoz it serves them politically notwithstanding the security threats, sovereignity of Sabah.

    KL won't care a shit for Sabahans, all they want is to control you people, take away your economy and let you begging all the way.

  16. Of course it is not the priority of the BN.

    Projek IC as we commonly called, it the pet project of the then Dr Mahathir, Mustapha, Harris to neutralize the true Sabahans voting rights and power and the advent of Umno into Sabah territory.

    While treacherous as it is, Umno has succeeded in gaining a foothold in Sabah politics.

    Illegal immigrants problem will not perish nor solved and Mykads will be issued everyday to these people.

    How to beat the BN is something we ought to seriously think about.

    Come elections, SAPP needs to devise some sort of strategy to staff off phantom voters.

  17. What priority?Even for QEH, SAPP can strike another 1200days still useless.
    Focus is on that piece of land at QEH gazetted $$$ but who care sabahan's medical matter so much!
    Motion should be raised in state and parliament or appeal not for the land to be used with other purpose but restore QEH. Include Leow and two health ministers before how much had been spent public $ in past long years at QEH,you tell me?
    Sabahan leaders mostly are silly in the eyes of Federal EPU planning.They are here to swap up logs,oils and now lands.
    Enough!Wake up and change!

    PBS Wants Federal Government To Resolve Illegal Immigrant Problems In Sabah

    PBS has been barking abt the PTI issue from 1985 (PBS became gomen) till 2010 still barking.

    PBS consists of a bunch of hypocrites and know only how to bark! Sabahan do not need an incompetence people to manage Sabah. GET LOST!

  19. villager said...
    is it because of there is no report about the government's efforts to eradicate illegal immigrants, then we conclude that the government does not concern with this problem??
    Based on the statistic given by the home ministry, the PTI already been legalised and filled up 40% of total Sabah population.

    I reckon you better wake up from your MABUK all the time, sigh!

  20. Driving in a car may not see the actual problem. But taking public transport can really see what is going on. So villager must be driving or chauffeur driven.

  21. who can give assurance that the new government could solve this problem? if the others parties is really concern about this, give an idea or show your efforts to overcome this problem. not just using it for your political interest.

  22. actually I'm really want to see how SAPP and other opposition parties will solve this problem..

  23. What it takes is sincerity of the government of the day, it is not who can solve this problem.

    It only takes the we say, in my old school motto..."Where there is a will, there's a way and also what we do, we carry through"

    Your hope is to try a new government in Sabah and Malaysia.

    The harm is done, there is no harm trying...for a change! Hidup SAPP dan Pakatan!

  24. Chong: Yee has done nothing for 8 years as a minister
    KOTA KINABALU, Aug 12, 2010: Resources Development and Information Technology Minister, Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai should stop his blaming game on the Saham Amanah Sabah (SAS) issue.

    Instead, he should concentrate on discharging his duty as a Minister of the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to find ways to solve the problems of stranded Sabahans in Kuala Lumpur and youth unemployment in Sabah, said Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Supreme Council member, Dato' David Chong Ket Sui.

    Chong who is also SAPP Api-Api CLC chief said Dr Yee was continuing to mislead the people with his demand for former Chief Minister, Datuk Yong Teck Lee, to take responsibility for the SAS disaster.

    Commenting on Dr Yee's statement during Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Tanjung Aru annual general meeting on Sunday, Chong said Dr Yee who is also a PBS Deputy President was doing this just to distract the people from his own failures as a Minister. What has he done for the people in his 8 years as a Minister? Nothing.

    "Only the BN government can take this responsibility no matter who is the chief minister. In this case, Datuk Musa Aman as the chief minister should look for the solution so that the affected investors get back their money.

    "Why blame Datuk Yong Teck Lee and SAPP? Why don't you (Dr Yee) blame Umno or any other BN component parties? Who are the members of the Board of Trustees of SAS? Who appointed them? Who is the Chairman? Does Datuk Yee not know? Umno is the biggest party in BN and has control over the Ministry of Finance, why doesn't Yee ask them?" asked Chong.

    It was also reported that the SAS price fall was due to the Asian financial crisis in 1997 – 1998, which affected all the government-run trust fund shares as well as commercial counters at the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. "I fail to understand is it Dr Yee either ignorant or pretending to be ignorant by continuing with his obsession to attack Datuk Yong," said Chong.

    However, Chong said the people was disappointed to note that while it was said by the State government that it has billions of ringgit in reserves and billions ringgit coming into the state but none of it was channelled to the SAS.

    He said the present move by the State Finance Ministry to pump in two hundred million ringgits into the SAS was not still not sufficient as the share unit price, which at its height reached RM1.43 sen per unit, barely moved. Where have all the billion and billion of ringgit gone to? Dr Yee as a Minister in the BN government must take the responsibility to explain to the investors why the BN government cannot help them. "If Dr Yee is adamant to say that Datuk Yong Teck Lee should be responsible then hand over the BN government to him and let him take the responsibility," said Chong.

  25. The corrupt faces of DAP are starting to surface, and people has to be alert to the 'clean' image that DAP has always been harping on. I'm not saying that DAP is equivalent to BN or UMNO, but what I'm saying is DAP is not as 'clean' and as 'accountable' as they claim to be. The arrogant attitude of our YB for Kota Kinabalu is for all to see.

    Therefore, it would be in the best interest of the rakyat to have a third force that is able to kill off UMNO/BN while providing a check and balance on the increasingly arrogant and incompetant DAP Sabah whose core is actually in West Malaysia.

    Beware that when Pakatan Rakyat is too strong, it is not necessarily good for the people as well.

    Only when we don't have a dominant political player then we can have a check and balance to address the rampant corruption in Malaysia.

  26. DAP & SAPP should make peace with each other & merge for the good of both side...fighting with each other is not a good sight especially through the eyes of potential voters...

  27. Solving illegal immigrants problem, easier said than done.
