Illegality: What to do | Daily Express Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu: Activist and surgeon Dr Chong Eng Leong said the key to solving the problem of undocumented migrants lies in real political will and cooperation between the Sabah and the federal government. „Simply talking about the problem without taking meaningful and decisive action will not see any progress in solving this problem,” he said at the GC Woolley Hall in the State Museum after launching his latest book, „Population Explosion and Demographic Change in Sabah”. Saturday.


His book includes proposed solutions that include tackling corruption among enforcement agencies, setting up a Philippine consulate in Sabah and Malaysian consulates in Nunavut and Zamboanga, and establishing a special government secretariat to oversee the settlement of migrants. Dr Chong is skeptical about the effectiveness of the state government's digital registration of foreigners.
