Immigration Amendment Bill approved in Parliament

Lusanda Bill
23 March 2011

The Immigration Amendment Bill was passed in the National Assembly yesterday.

The Bill was not received well by opposition parties.

The parties have voiced their concerns saying it is not fair to give asylum seekers only five days to report to a refugee reception centre from the time they cross the border.

ANC MP Andre Gaum rejected their criticism. He says asylum seekers' human rights will not be infringed.

Gaum said “we do not want refugees to dwell in the country they must go and report to the nearest refugee reception centre”.
