We are migrants and mixed blooded people, so what?

We are migrants and mixed blooded people, so what? Who are the real first original pure-blooded people. There is no such thing or people in this world. More than 99.99% of  the world are migrants and mixed blooded. The remaining 0.01 just pretending or wrongly thought that they were original pure-blooded superior race.

UN and the whole world should pressure the Japan and Korea to accept migrant workers and should reprimand Brunei and OPEC Arab nations to nationalize the migrants and to give citizens to them.

We were discriminated as a mixed-blooded person and because we were from the minority religious group. Once migrated here, our hope was crashed by another round of discrimination again. We are called Burmese or Myanmar and even denied the facilities enjoyed by other foreigners e.g. Americans, Japanese, British, EU citizens, Arabs, Taiwanese, Hong Kong people, Commonwealth countries, OIC e.t.c. Our hope of early assimilation with the majority Malay Muslims was dashed cruelly by the concept of Malay-Indon brotherhood.

At first I thought that I had made a wrong decision by choosing Malaysia instead of migrating to more democratized Christian countries like USA, England, Australia e.t.c… Easily accepting as Permanent Residence and getting the citizenship easily because of incorrupt Public Servants and Transparent Rules and Regulations just lead to the misconception that they are better. Actually after that, there is no more progress because there is an invisible glass ceiling above the migrants especially if they are non-Christians and specifically if they are Muslims. My wife’s aunts from Perth, Australia told me that just because some of the Chinese Muslims visited them during the Eid, their neighbours threw plastic packets of shit in front of their portico.

BANGKOK, Oct 5 —The global economic crisis has reduced the role of migrant workers, but that is likely to change dramatically as developed countries face a shortfall in workers over the next four decades, a UN report said today.

Demand for migrants will return when economic revival is underway, offering huge administrative and recruitment cost-savings for companies operating in rich countries, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) said.

“Following recovery from the global recession, the demand for migrant workers will return,” said Jeni Krugman, author of UNDP’s latest report on migration.

The report called for restrictions to be lifted on the movement of migrant workers, particularly unskilled labourers, to allow them to transfer to other jobs when they become available.

The UNDP also recommended that countries avoid protectionism, liberalise labour laws and stamp out xenophobia and marginalisation of migrant workers, whose families benefited greatly from “social remittances” sent home.

Earnings by economic migrants from poorer countries were 15 times higher than at home, which meant those employed in developed states were helping to double school enrolment rates and significantly reduce instances of child mortality at home.

The UNDP said demand for migrant workers in developed countries would be higher in the next four decades when domestic workforces shrink. Populations are expected to grow by more than a third in poorer nations.

“Trends in population and demographics are a sign to recognise the need for migrant rights and removal of restrictions on movement,” the report said.

The findings showed many were working in poor conditions and were viewed negatively because of misconceptions about migrant labour.

Most migrants moved within their own countries, rather than across borders, and made little impact on government resources.

Migrants typically boost economic output and give more than they take,” UNDP said. “Immigration does not crowd out locals from the job market and improves rate of investment in new businesses and initiatives.” — Reuters
