Immigration Does Not Know What To Do With Somalis

Immigration Issues70 citizens of Somalia and Bangladesh are being held in the jail of the National Immigration Service, but so far, the Panamanian authorities are not able to determine what to do with them.

The Director of Immigration, Javier Carrillo, expressed his concern about the issue because these people arrived at the country with no passport and they are not certain about what their names are.

Carrillo admitted they do not know what to do with these undocumented immigrants, because Panama does not have embassies or consulates in Somalia and Bangladesh, so there is no way to issue safe-conduct passes for them.

Despite the efforts, the Panamanian authorities fail to prevent human trafficking. In the case of extra-continental foreigners (Somalia, Bangladesh, among other countries) arrive in Colombia and from there they illegally enter Panama. (TVN)

Drop them off the coast of Venezuela. They'll blend right in, since Venezooella is cozy with Iran. Allah Akhbar.
