Value(s) and Belief(s):

Humanity, freedom, justice

Proposal of Solution:

Immigration law needs to change immediately to restore the rights of being born in Sabah. Discussion with politicians to bring it up in Parliament will be important to change and improve the law. The law to protect them from being sent back to their so called country should also be amended.

Isu dan Polisi Semasa:

Ramai kanak-kanak yang dilahirkan di Sabah dikeluarkan surat beranak yang menyatakan dengan jelas bahawa mereka dilahirkan di sini tetapi ketika mendaftar untuk mendapatkan I.C., mereka masih akan dilihat sebagai warga Filipina atau Indonesia, pegawai imigresen enggan memberikan mereka I.C.

Nilai-nilai dan Kepercayaan:

Kemanusiaan, kebebasan, keadilan

Penyelesaian:

Undang-undang imigresen perlu segera diubah untuk mengembalikan hak dilahirkan di Sabah. Perbincangan dengan ahli politik untuk mengemukakannya di Parlimen, akan menjadi penting untuk mengubah dan menambahbaik undang-undang. Undang-undang untuk melindungi mereka dari dihantar kembali ke negara ‘asal‘ mereka tersebut juga harus diubah.
