    • No Chinese illegal arrested. After those 30 were arrested & relesed, Chinese illegals now above the law.
      They come on investors permits, next day you find him selling salaula on the street.

      Our porous immigration is the biggest threat to our country.

  6. Is this a sign that Immigration has waken up and started doing their work? Where, how and when still remains a secret as to entry into the country. Are the immigration drawing any lessons from these send offs because the number is big.

    • Unlike the immigration officers in the Western countries, African officers are corrupt to the core. We want to live what we believe like whites by any means.
