Speaking to mainstream media reporters at a coffee shop on Wednesday, Bukit Batok candidate Dr Chee Soon Juan said the recent detention of 8 Bangladeshi nationals for ISIS terrorist related activities highlights the Govt’s need to tighten Singapore’s immigration policy.
Dr Chee said”: “That starts at the ICA and this is I think where the lax immigration policy is. You let in hundreds and thousands, millions, you got to be asking yourself. There cannot be people there who are not properly vetted. … The Government must pay more attention to this problem right now. Tighten the immigration policy for goodness sake, we have been saying this for so many years.”
He reiterated his call on the Government to deal with the terror problem at its root cause by stopping the inflow of such radical elements through proper vetting mechanisms.
