REFUGEES must not be allowed to work in Malaysia.

FOR a political party which is finding it hard to reasonate in the Malay heartland, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, seems to have  an inbuilt mechanism to keep the majority of the Malay population from warming up to the party.

TAKE for instance, the proposal by the non elected Member of Parliament, Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, the Home Minister, who still has aspirations to be the Deputy President of the party, the next time the party elections are here.

DAFTLY,READ  : a consideration is being made on potentially allowing refugees to work, a move even though is merely at the consideration stage, won't be taken kindly by the Malay population. READ : The Majority of Malaysians regardless of Race Are Not Welcoming of Refugees.

THIS is where even considering allowing refugees, would pit the Malays against the mostly Rohingya refugees  over economic opportunities, as the Malays are the overwhelming majority in blue collar work in the informal economy.

WHY would any SANE Government, who wants to govern beyond the next General Election, wish to create YET another layer of competition for the  Malays, IS BEYOND ME.

INSTEAD of attempting to be the FATHER CHRISTMAS of Refugees, Saifuddin Nasution should instead  follow the foot steps of Singapore, by sending the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNCHR),  HOME.
