House Chair, the ANC believes that while migration is a global phenomenon, there is a need for a swift action in dealing with undocumented foreigners and those who commit crimes in our country.
Kicking off the safer festive season campaign, the South African Police Service in Gauteng led by Minister Ndosi, arrested 380 undocumented foreign nationals in Hillbrow, on Friday 8th November. The issue of undocumented foreign nationals especially those involved in criminal activities is a serious cause for concern.
As the ANC we understand that foreign nationals have chosen South Africa for various reasons. We therefore call upon our government to crack down on those who are undocumented. The ANC election manifesto directs us to take tough measure against undocumented migrants involved in criminal activities.
We remain committed to achieving Outcome 3 of the National Development Plan, NDP, to protect all living South Africans, tourists who visit including those who study and work legally. I thank you.
