Russian Illegal Immigrants Return from South Korea
South Korea has launched a crackdown on undocumented immigrants illegally resident or working in the country.
KHABAROVSK. May 13. VOSTOK-MEDIA – Border checkpoints of Khabarovsk and Jewish Autonomous District are registering an increased number of Russian nationals deported from South Korea for violations of immigration laws.
A spokesman for Khabarovsk Border Service told Vostok-Media South Korea has recently launched a crackdown on undocumented immigrants illegally resident or working in the country.
The move came following increased social tensions in Korea resulting from the global economic meltdown, the all-round fall in the living standards and job cuts. Since Korean employers started to hire cheap foreign labor leaving hundreds of locals jobless there has been a number of clashes between Korean nationals and immigrants.
A number of Russian illegal workers resident in South Korea decided to return to Russia, officials said.
Recently, the Khabarovsk-Airport border checkpoint officers detained three Russians with expired external passports and tourist visas.
