New Delhi: The government will identify all illegal immigrants and infiltrators in the country and take measures to deport them, Home Minister Amit Shah said.
Replying to a question in Rajya Sabha, Shah said: “We will identify all the illegal immigrants and infiltrators living in every inch of this country and deport them as per the international law.”
The Home Minister’s statement comes a day after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said that the Centre has adopted a multi-pronged approach to ensure effective surveillance and domination of international borders to check infiltration of illegal migrants.
“Physical infrastructure like border fencing, floodlighting, construction of border roads and establishment of border outposts has been created,” the Home Ministry said.
The ministry has said that a technological solution in the form of Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) has been implemented in some vulnerable border areas.
The detection and deportation of illegal immigrants is a continuous and ongoing process, the ministry added.
