    Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal today said the government has taken an initiative to deport around 11,000 foreigners staying in Bangladesh without valid documents.

    The minister came up with the disclosure at the secretariat following a meeting of the cabinet committee on law and order.

    The authorities enlisted around 11,000 foreigners who do not have valid visas or passports, the minister said, adding that some of them are currently imprisoned for their involvement in crimes.

    Although their passports expired, they never tried to return home. Even the embassies of their respective countries in Dhaka did not respond when the authorities concerned contacted them to discuss the issue. That is why the government has taken an initiative to send them back to their respective countries, he added.

    Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque, also the president of the cabinet committee on law and order, echoed the Home Minister's remark, saying, "Our intelligence agencies have worked successfully to identify the illegal foreigners."

    Minister Mozammel also said the process of deporting some foreigners appeared to be complicated as there is no money with them. Besides, there are some countries that do not have embassies in Dhaka.

    The cabinet committee recommended allocation of some money in this regard, he added.

    Lemme make a few guesses - some from Africa? Plenty of Indians too - I suppose.

    Problem with local neighbor countries is that borders are porous. I mean people can simply walk across. Both local desis and people from Africa for example.

    So Indians can cross over to Bangladesh. Some of these Indians are impossible to differentiate from locals (from border areas).

    So all of a sudden Bangladesh cannot get much more developed economically compared to Pakistan or India (or vice versa) until border porosity problem can be solved (or at least controlled somewhat). There will be massive influx of illegal immigrants.

    No matter how well-managed and developed Bangladesh gets - therein lies the dilemma. Barbed wire, sentries every hundred yards, drones, nothing will solve this problem.

    Sanghis live in a fool's world if they think they can control this.

    Its in the other (repeated post) topic thread:

    https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/bang...ey-11-000-foreigners-living-illegally.642269/

    Most of the 11,000 illegal foreigners are from African countries like Nigeria and Tanzania, according to the minister.

    Of course, illegals hiding from ICE in sanctuary state themselves can spout their angry feelings and cry-drama as they want. They do worse than Haitians in the US for a reason after all. Illegals stronking about the subject matter of illegals....always funny thing...hypocrisy is always rife in swamp gutter genetics.
