Foreign Workers

Lately, there has been a lot of adverse publicity on foreign workers. But Marina Mahathir is right when she pointed out that they are not the main crime offenders and they are not stealing jobs from locals. In fact, they are working in places where our own people refuse to work.

Yes, repatriate them by all means, if illegal workers are caught. Unfortunately, there is a syndicate that arrests illegal workers and then demand for ransoms from the workers' employers for their release. The government should investigate this matter.
