Do you know that the total amount of immigrants in Malaysia now has surprisingly reached about three times the population in Singapore? Our country is constanly being changed into an alienated land. Are you willing to risk your country for that? Definitely no. Therefore, legal immigration must be stopped in order to maximise manpower of Malaysians as well as to reduce money spent and problems associated with these immigrants.
First of all, the major factor of a nation’s success lies in the hands of its people. Instead, Malaysia is now being too dependent on immigrants. We can see nowadays that a lot of Indonesian employees are being imported especially for construction field. Even though they are legal immigrants, their presence obviously restrict our manpower to be maximised. A lot of different fields from babysitters to business owners are now being dominated by these outsiders. These jobs opportunities should be offered to our own citizens so as to achieve success purely by Malaysians themselves.
As a human being, immigrants also have their rights for basic needs such as shelters, monthly payments and also health insurance. This will indirectly make a decreament on our nation’s economical status. For instance, when an immigrant worker involved in an accident at his workplace, the employer which is usually a Malaysian, has to pay for his hospital bills as well as his life insurance if the injuries involve any lost of his physical capability or even that cause him death. Those money actually can be used for other beneficial purposes rather than being spent on someone who cannot be sured to stand and fight for our country.
Like we all know, each citizens of a country has been taught, whether in school or at home, to love their country and to have strong spirit of patriotism since childhood. These is also being instilled among these immigrants. Such norm might put our people in a big risk. How is that so? When two governments got into some political misunderstandings, the immigrants of respective countries will defend their homelands by any means such as riot or dreadful threat. This action is clearly observable when the Indonesian immigrants shout out “ Crush Malaysia” in October 2009 over a simple misunderstanding on culture. During this period, our people suffered from a horrible experience of scaredness and insecurity, which should have been avoided from the first place.
We do realise that our government together with all Malaysians are putting our whole hearts and efforts to bring Malaysia into a fast-developing country by the year 2020, which I believe excludes the immigrants. Therefore, a paradigm shift is totally needed to establish the importance of Malaysians, not the immigrants, to make Vission 2020 into a reality. Once again I would like to highlight the fact that Malaysia does not need immigrants at all to be developed. Just bear in mind, we are 1Malaysia and we are one nation.
