January 20, 2013 - Believe it or not, experts, pundits and political scentriec see it that the illegal influx of illegal immigrants into the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) is nothing less than a time bomb.

Occasionally, I am painfully reminded that Juba, the capital city, a place I once called home, is now harboring tens of thousands of undocumented aliens from all over the world, but supremely from the neighboring countries of Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea and even Somalia.

As I always delve when writing an article, a few weeks ago, I called Dhanojak Obongo, the distinguished Deputy Head of the Mission at the Republic of South Sudan Embassy in Washington DC, to get his perspective on this critical illegal immigration nightmare.

Here’s what Ambassador Obongo had to say: “Illegal immigration is not only a threat to our culture and our way of life, but most importantly our national security in the long run. “But for the best interest of fairness, he went on to say, “We are really and truly indebted to some of the neighboring countries for they were there for us when no one else was.”

Yes, I could not agree with him more, and so with Justin Maker Bol, an SPLM outspoken member and a businessman in the state of Ohio, USA. He said, “Although immigrants are essential to fill in gap in the market place, illegal immigration is certainly not the answer.” “Aliens who break the law by crossing the border without proper documentation, or overstaying their visa should be deported.”

Subsequently, the government of the RSS should put into account the consequences of having that very many undocumented immigrants on our soil, and recognize the fact that sooner rather than later, we will have a culture take over in the same manner in which the world most richest and most powerful country, The United States of America, finds itself in deep trouble, for allowing over twelve million and counting illegal immigrants into it’s land. Not only that, the Spanish language will soon be the tongue of the day in the USA.

The truth of the matter is employing illegal immigrants creates an unfair competition in the work force. As a result, there are thousand, if not millions of South Sudanese citizens who are jobless, because illegal immigrants are taking them.

You need more?

Studies after studies have shown that illegal immigrants have no loyalty to the host countries, but in most cases, they have no interest in assimilating. Instead, they often try to impose their own will, culture and language on the citizens of those nations.

Beyond that, it would take some bravery…. Not political correctness on the part of the government of the RSS. It should do it utmost to come up with a comprehensive resolution to put and end to what could become a crisis, if it’s not already is.

    I agree with you Luk, I wonder why Deng is just mad of your article. These neighboring countries have contributed with us a lot right from when we were in war till we get our right but this does not mean that they take advantage on the situation. The Government will find it’s own way of compensating their contributions but not allowing them to snig into the country without any proper documentation
