Checking illegal migrants from BangladeshThe problem of illegal migrants from Bangladesh is not a new problem. It has been in existence for a very long time. They were said to be coming from across the border in West Bengal.
Now, a shocking report in the Coimbatore city edition of Times of India, dated the 13th of December 2018, that there are several illegal migrants in the city of Tiruppur in jobs in the textile units there, is an eye-opener. There have been some cases of thefts and even other anti-social activities reported in the past. The police were able to trace the culprits to West Bengal and arrest them.
However, this is a human issue as well. If we were to give them legal status, what will happen? In any case, if it is proved that they are illegal migrants from Bangladesh, what will be the legal position, as such?
Members who know the actual position may please respond.
