DPD RI Requests Oversight of Illegal Foreign Workers to be Tightened

dpd.go.id Semarang, dpd.go.id - Vice Chairwoman of DPD RI is concerned about the increasing of illegal Foreign Workers (TKA) in Indonesia lately. For that DPD RI asked the government to increase the supervision of illegal foreign workers. "Not only in Semarang that has experienced an increase in illegal foreign workers. In North Sumatera, it has been increasing for long. So it needs supervision, "said Darmayanti during a working visit in Semarang, Central Java, Saturday (28/4). Previously, she continued, DPD RI has formed a Special Committee (Pansus) of TKA. Special Committee of TKA DPD RI has also conducted supervision and research. "The most important oversight by the Immigration, Police, Department of Manpower and regional government. I think this should be done, "said Darmayanti. She cited that North Sumatera is geographically close to neighboring countries. So many foreign workers who enter with the tourist passport, in fact they actually works. "If this is left by the immigration of illegal TKA this will increase," said this senator from North Sumatera. In addition, the regional governments must also open a complaint channel associated with illegal foreign workers working in various sectors. "Regional government must also play a role in opening the complaint of illegal foreign workers," said Darmayanti. As is known, President Joko Widodo has signed Presidential Regulation No. 18 Year 2018 on the use of foreign workers. Surely it raises the pros and cons in the midst of society. "With regard to the pros and cons, we have to be sensitive about this issue. Because if not our country will be invaded by illegal foreign workers, "explained Vice Chairwoman of DPD RI.
