YBO - The northern province of Yen Bai detected 1,113 cases of illegal immigration in 2015-2020, with 1,796 violators, most of them ethnic people of Mong, Dao, Tay, Cao Lan and Thai, among others.
The localities need to carry out programmes and socio-economic development projects and improve quality of people’s lives so as to help them earn stable income.
Local people’s lives still face difficulties, most of them do have neither certificates, sufficient educational level nor skills to earn stable jobs, or have low income.
Some of them are gullible while others take advantage of the policies on immigration, tourism and labour exports to organise illegal entry and exit.
Along the Vietnam-China border, there are numerous trails, crossings, rivers and shallow streams, which are favourable for such unlawful acts.
To combat illegal entry and exit, local authorities, organisations and relevant agencies need to engage in labour management and job arrangement, open vocational training courses and foster labour export projects to create jobs for those who are in the working age.
Localities are requested to carry out programmes, socio-economic development projects and improve quality of people’s lives so as to help them earn stable income.
The public security force at commune level, with its key role, needs to ensure the efficiency of residential area management work at grassroots and promptly detects cases of absence without reasons, as well as keep a close watch on suspicious people and impose suitable measures.
A campaign calling on people to protect national security has been launched in various forms, particularly mobilising people of great influence in the community to promote their role in the work, thereby raising public awareness of illegal immigration.
