Yesterday, the South African Department of Home Affairs said that more than 10,000 illegal migrants have been deported from South Africa during the first six months of 2019.

The spokesman of the South African Department of Home Affairs Minister, Siya Qoza said it the authorities are clamping down on illegal migration. Also, he revealed that there are further plans to secure the country’s porous borders.

“These deportations happen regularly, following the prescribed legal processes”, Xinhua quoted him as saying.

“In the same period we have charged 1,048 employers for breaching immigration laws and more than half of these were in Gauteng.

“With regards to hiring of undocumented foreign nationals, we will clamp down on private business owners who do not abide by the Labour and Immigration Laws,” said the spokesman.

Also, Qoza said the department is making moves to implement the Border Management Authority in the next financial year in order to improve the security at the borderline and ports of entry.

“The Border Management Authority will help us because the problem is not the actual port, but the borderline.

“This will allow us to have guards along the borderline and also simply process people around the border,” said Qoza.
