The unwelcome guests

Indonesian immigrants and Malaysian public responses

A. Kassim

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Malaysia presently faces serious problems of illegal immigration into the country. The migrants are largely from the ASEAN region, ie, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, while a few are from Burma, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India. As the migrants arrived illegally, it is impossible to determine their number. That a very large proportion of them are from Indonesia is evidenced by their conspicuous presence in town centres and on estates or plantations, and by the number of Indonesian illegal immigrants who have been detained by the authorities and deported. The presence of the Indonesian immigrants has serious socio-economic and political implications and invokes varying responses and reactions from different sections of the Malaysian public. Responses both at the macro and micro levels are examined. -from Author
