Has liberal immigration policies made Singapore more vulnerable to foreign interference?

The politics of Singapore should be decided by Singaporeans alone. The Government of the day must ensure that Singapore does not fall prey to foreign interference and state-sponsored disinformation campaigns which threaten our national security.

But before enacting new laws, the Government must convince Singaporeans why existing laws are insufficient to negate such threats. The Government should also explain to Singaporeans if its immigration and manpower policies have made Singapore more vulnerable to foreign interference.

Last month, a Hong Kong restaurant owner, Alex Yeung, who organised an illegal public gathering in Singapore to discuss the ongoing Hong Kong protests was given a stern warning by the police, and was repatriated. A Singaporean real estate businessman, Philip Chan, was also warned for facilitating the gathering. It is reported that Mr Chan is a new citizen and runs an organisation which helps new immigrants integrate into Singapore society .

The report added that Mr Yeung and Mr Chan met for the first time in the Chinese Embassy, where they met with an embassy official. Mr Chan declined to comment why he went to the embassy, but pressure was put on the Singapore Police Force (probably by a foreign entity) to act in a certain manner in the case.

This is very worrying! New citizens like Mr Chan – who do they owe their allegiance to? To Singapore or to the country he hails from? How and what kind of influence does he have on the new citizens he has access to?

Incidents such as this makes Singaporeans question how foreigners are assessed before citizenship or permanent residency are granted to them. Unless the Government of Singapore adopts a more stringent assessment criteria to accept foreigners as citizens or permanent residents, it will put Singapore and Singaporeans at a disadvantage to be unfairly influenced by foreign powers.

    Naive and daft Sillypore is still sleeping, oblivious to the infiltration and threat of CCP.

    If left unchecked, a pliant vassal state friendly to CCP’s evil will be installed.

  • Art Of Deception:

    Don’t be alarmed if this could be the ‘tip’ of the iceberg. Many could have got through to become PR or new citizens. Most important there must be draconian laws in place to deal harshly on them whether PR, New Citizens or Local-bred Singaporeans.

    If I am not mistaken Alex Yeung is well-known in HK for his strong pro-China views and is unpopular among Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protesters.

  • You Die Your Own Business:

    It is beyond liberal, but simply irresponsible immigration policy.
    The policy exploits cheap foreign workers at the expense of local jobs, while enriching the greedy and evil.

  • most uselss:

    In parliament, we have Malaysians and Indian nationalities and they both work very hard to suck up to Pinky.

    FTs coming to Singapore will suck up to white party but will still promote their own interest, like hiring their own natives.

    This explains why JP Murugam all Indian management, all have become new Singaporeans.

    We cannot stop their 10M plan unless they are voted out.

  • consequences of ceca ah nehs:

    ceca for ah nehs has enriched pap folks via GDP growth statistics so much so 24 months bonus year in year out has blinded them to the harm of pap open legs policy.

    ceca ah nehs has also enriched the ah neh HR middlemen. they bring in the ah nehs at a commission, then they bring in their villages at another commission. this is besides not hiring a single local born saving on true wages if they hired 70% sheep and they low ball the wages for the ceca ah nehs they bring in.

    who pays for this pap open legs folly?

    1st, the 30% OPPO. they get crowding everywhere they go. worse is litter since the ceca ah nehs bring their 3rd world habits over here. worst they talk down at you since when they marry 70% sheep women and buy the S$1.5m condo they talk to you like you HDB rentees shit go ffff off.

    2nd, the 70% sheep. they become security guards in ceca ah neh naturalised citizen S$1.5m condo. they serve NSF NSR with Saturday Sunday riffle range when ceca ah neh siok siok wife Saturday Sunday 70% sheep women wives.

    whose fault ultimately? 70% sheep.

    ffff the 70% sheep whose stupidity has harmed us 30% OPPO folks.

  • have there been such cases:

    //A Singaporean real estate businessman, Philip Chan, was also warned for facilitating the gathering. It is reported that Mr Chan is a new citizen and runs an organisation which helps new immigrants integrate into Singapore society .//

    at least, these are the ‘noisy’ ones – who are more visible and hence presenting easy catch for the white idiots to earn some brownie points or some badge ?

    the insidious ones are the more silent ones perhaps coming with stirling credentials and slowly co-opted into positions of influence and making key decisions in the likely acceptable line of economic growth (but with physical or social externalities socialized to all) ?

    at 20k p.a of naturalization, what are the chances of such ‘security issues’ becoming internal problem (something committed by our PROUDLY OWN sinkies, naturalized ones) ? well, have there been such cases already and detected (or yet to be detected) ?

  • China influence Aus?:

    So many India nationals have coded for garment projects. Any backdoor inserted in codes?
    So many China-born uni students given scholarships using our tax monies. And they get high paying Singapore jobs and in public sectors and GLCs.

    What Guarantees these will not sell info to China?

    What is a new citizen?
    He is one who Left his motherland for Foreign land.

    So, I am not saying they demonstrated betrayal to their motherland but I am saying these proven they can leave their citizenship for other pastures. Proven track record

    the reason why the white idiots ‘preach’ about ‘no foreign influence or no foreign interference’ sounds so laughable, hollow and naively simple (perhaps such simple naivete is also good enough to fool many daft sinkies) just because they decide to change the badge of FT into sinkies ?
