That aside, it seems that the US Immigration authorities have rounded-up 60 Indonesians for various immigration violations and is to deport them back to Indonesia on a chartered flight scheduled for 14 August 2008. This means that they will be back in time for the 17 August Independence Day celebrations that will dot the archipelago.
The deportation of these 60 individuals follows the deportation of 54 Indonesians on 10 April 2008.
The focus on illegal immigration in the US, at least on the majority of talk shows and other punditry programs, is on the Hispanic population. However, the deportation of Indonesians, Filipinos, Cambodians, Canadians, and the like, highlights that the issue is much more wide-spread than just one group of people.
The issue of illegal immigration is probably worthy of a more lengthy post. Yet, I guess my point for this brief little spiel is that sooner or later you get caught.
