I refer to your report Foreigners with ICs: Activist threatened.
I recently returned to Sabah having been away since 2001. I couldn't believe how much Kota Kinabalu has changed. A city should change for the better but KK has changed for the worse due illegal immigrants.
Touching down on Jan 26, my happy and excited mood was ruined by the scenes that greeted me. I saw many street kids (speaking Filipino) loitering around the city and gambling on the streets in full view of the public. The worst thing was when I saw a local man shouting for help and chasing a thief.
The same night, my friend and I decided to have a drink and we managed to find one parking space near the pub. Right after we alighted from the car, a group of street kids surrounded us and asked for money if we wished to park our car there. Who are they to ask for parking fees? But we had no choice but to give them money since they were in a group and kept disturbing us.
When I talked to the local folk in KK, many said they were afraid to go out at night as the crime rate in Sabah was increasing by the year. They say most of the criminal cases are committed by the illegal immigrants. I believe them. In just one night, I saw many things in KK that I could not believe. Come to KK for a night and see for yourself.
The number of illegals is increasing and they multiply very quickly. In my opinion, the signature campaign launched by activist Patrick Sindu is acceptable and I believe all Sabahans accept it. Do you think Sindu would have launched this campaign if the authorities had really done their job? If the situation was not critical, do you think Sindu would have launched such a campaign?
I want to ask my dear government: When are you people going to start taking action and be serious over this matter? Is action only going to be taken after the illegal immigrants have taken over Sabah? Our country were once invaded by the British and Japanese and I don't want to see new history being printed saying that Sabah was once a free state.
I love Sabah and I love my country very much. I have always respected the government, but I feel you (the government) should do more by helping Sabah to solve this problem. These illegal immigrants will have a huge effect on our country. Save Sabah now please!
