Immigration policy

"These people are really undermining us now" - Look at what Foreigners were spotted doing

It's a hot-button issue in South Africa, where immigration has become an issue. Despite the fact that South Africans are organizing to raise awareness about the immigrant situation and find solutions, foreigners are organizing counter-mobilities against their country's citizens. 

Foreigners' stalls were removed from Bara Taxi rank and several were told to leave. Support for anti-immigration movements was soon gathered by ordinary South Africans who allege that foreigners are stealing their employment. 

Activists like Operation Dudula have received less backing from South African government and other citizens. While these movements have been branded anti-immigrant and xenophobic, the very same individuals who may not have democracy in their own towns are accused of violating their rights. 

Protests by Bangladeshi and Pakistani residents of Mthatha today were witnessed by locals. Immigrant demonstrators were captured on camera and posted to social media. A group of South Africans, on the other hand, was protesting against them. Illegal immigrants had left messages on their billboards warning of drugs and prostitution. 

According to a commenter on one social media site, "These individuals are putting a lot of pressure on us. As far as I can tell, none of them have the necessary abilities to be here in South Africa. In 2024, when the ANC's time is up, I'd like to see who will be there to defend them "It's true. 

Immigrants seem to have a hard time comprehending why they are here illegally. As long as they have valid documentation, they should follow the rules of the country they've entered. Instead than enforcing the law, the government is allowing this to happen because they prefer Pan-Africanism to doing so. 

Do you have any thoughts on this matter? I'd love to hear from you. To keep up with the latest material, please like, share, and follow.
