The Malaysian Immigration Department today has come out with a warning to illegal immigrants, particularly the Rohingya to stay away from the country.

Complete with a poster very much like that of an action movie, featuring officers in uniform, the message was posted on social media platforms signaling the intent of denying Rohingyas entry and refuge in the country.

Rohingya ethnic migrants are reminded that their arrival is uninvited and never allowed. The masterminds and syndicates involved will continue to be hunted in combating cross-border crime as well as other crimes.

Some Malaysians question the hostilities

When the post went on social media, it caught the attention of Malaysians who were shocked to see the authorities acting aggressively towards the ethnic group.

They were critical towards the message, saying that it’s inhumane to treat to the Rohingya in that manner.

Others supported the initiative

Although there were Malaysians who find the announcement distasteful, there were also those who supported the Department’s message.

Commenters who showed their support for the initiative urged authorities to check on immigrants in the Klang Valley area who are owning vehicles and businesses here in Malaysia.
