New York Times ( 5-31-2019) reported that in the 12 months that ended in March, more than 112,000 people were prosecuted for illegal entry or re-entry.   In contrast, nearly 50,000 foreign workers from South-East Asia fled, and the situation is bad ( immigration government statistics: 48299 by 10-31-2019, 47632 at large by 7-31-2019,  46980 on the run by 6-30-2019).      Formosa TV (民視英語新聞) English News at 3-25-2019:  ......  All workers from Southeast Asia know that in Taiwan there are no consequences for getting caught, so why not run for it?  Even on social media, they openly say that Taiwan is the perfect place to run away.   What a shame of Taiwan  !  


The United Daily (聯合報) 、the Liberty Times (自由時報) at  9-5-2019、 Taiwan News at 9-4-2019 reported that there're lots of prostitutes and illegal workers coming from South-East Asia,  however,  National Immigration Agency parried by the phrases their Specialized Operation Corps and Brigade are 'understaffed' therefore resulting in social security loopholes  ......  Radio Taiwan International (中央廣播電台 12-26-2018) reported Taiwan's National Immigration Agency government and Ministry of Labor were criticized and were corrected by Control Yuan for their poor performance of duties, conducting checks and taking of conclusive evidences ...

 

FTV News 3-25-2019: Over half of the workers that run away are caregivers.   United Daily group (聯合報, 7-22-2015, 經濟日報、聯合晚報, 11-28-2015 ) reported that many caretakers avoid the elderly with serious illness ( it's "Adverse Selection" ! slight disease needs caretakers? ) or weight 70+kg ( ps: Average weight of N. American adults is 80.7kg - Wikipedia ;  007 in <You Only Live Twice>: I just might retire to here, Japan - a country men come first, women come second;  but Taiwan is a country maids flee first ).   High percentage of foreign caregivers running away endangers health and life of the cared who are not allowed to apply a new one within 3+ months  ――  The Labor Gov. and Legislative Yuan can not escape censure for wrongly amending and executing Employment Service Law... (ref. to Liberty Times, 6-30-2019).   Those politicians are as cold-bloody as runaways.    Formosa TV news (民視新聞) 9-2-2018TVBS 9-8-2018, CTV evening news 10-20-2015, etc commented again and again that the public seemed to be angry that the only thing Taiwan can do is to repatriate South-East Asian migrant care-givers who did evil things to the cared, the elderly.   CNA (中央社, 1-23-2018): a Labor official in Southern Taiwan said no any illegal foreign worker caught there got penalty-fine.  Till end of 2018 Taiwan even let go some foreign worker guilty in criminal case (ref. to United Daily, 12-14-2018).  Is it a principle of Verhältnismäßigkeitsprinzip (proportionality) or New South Bound Policy ?
 

Kao-hsuing City mayor & KMT presidential candidate Han in early Sept. '19 said  "We are grateful to all the new immigrants who come here to work legally.  But as for those illegally and causing trouble, this is absolutely unacceptable".   A few days ago Han just spoke out publicly a controversial phrase describing the flight of Taiwanese talent and the arrival of migrant workers as "phoenixes flying away and a bunch of chickens coming in!" (  in Taiwan and Hong Kong, etc, "chickens"  mean prostitutes, in here, also hint illegal workers ).  

 

Certainly I agree NIA and president Tsai's words, migrant workers should not be 'insulted'; However, we only respect those who respect themselves.

To solve the problems, the site urges Taiwanese governments should give more efforts on arresting illegal migrants ( not just occasionally crackdown 500 laborers, in June '19), and should put priority on serious cases so as to protect the elderly, infirm, ill, and disabled people from being hurt.   Nice assistances from all nationals and foreigners in Taiwan are needed and appreciated.   The site is trying to stop those bad care-givers and maids going overseas to hurt weak people in other countries as well. 

 

 I personally saw more than once an illegal broker hanging around in one of largest foreign labor companies and another one with top score given by Taiwanese Labor Gov.   A broker company said some groups gave covers and aid to run-away migrants, this reminds me of critiques (2012/2013) of accomplices (city mayor, County Magistrate, city/county councilors, legislators, gov. officials etc ) exploiting foreign laborers.  Are same sort of politicians still doing this ?   Taiwan arrested 4,000 major gangsters within a short time years ago, now they fail to catch tiny little South-East Asian laborers? 

 

   What a shame of Taiwan  !   in all the past years, int'l fraud ( quora: Taiwan largely sees these as an asset rather than liability...) , drug base ( CTN: Taiwan is producing and selling center of Asia ), women & children trafficking ,  abusing migrant workers ( USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices ), pirate ( GreenPeace: Taiwan gov. knows this issue but does little, TW just won't change unless Europe gave a yellow-card ) , a paradise for illegal migrants, bad judiciary,  ... all low-down dirty plays  !

But after running away, many end up realizing that the promises of higher wages were all lies.  
They paid same wages
(as working legally), but gave laborers harder work to do.

This mirrors how our government cares about the elderly,

  once foreign laborer run away, most likely, the gov. can't find her, you can do nothing but await 3 months
or a lot more time to get a new care giver,
and possibly a bad one her previous boss threw away

illegal migrants in Taiwan  

Below is a serious case, M**** Ummi (name with mosaic) who fled, most likely, to escape justice and possible legal punishments, instead of running away for being exploited (ref. to Taiwan Legislative Yuan, 5-6-2019  醒報 ) or abused like many others. 

 

Missing or run-away Ummi - reward NT$ 10,000  ( details - see below "ending" )

●  (1)  many run away for illegal broker's lies

        Formosa TV English News  (3-25-2019)   Brokerage fees are not the main cause for escaping.  That's an erroneous assumption.

        Over half of the workers that run away are caretakers.   Many workers flee in hopes of finding better-paying jobs.  
        But after running away, many end up realizing that the promises of higher wages were all lies.  
        They paid same wages
(as working legally), but gave laborers harder work to do. 

 

 

●  (2)  Avoid being abused or hurt !

   
        M.  Ummi is young
good looking, the underworld may or might abuse her or illegally "use" her !?

 

        Ref to info. from one of largest foreign laborer companies in Taiwan   http://www.sea.com.tw/promote_detail.php?sn=5157#.XWjWiDp7mUk
 

        news: Running away led to a miserable end, 40 laborers were raped and forced to have 'drugs'


 

 

 
TKI YANG KABUR AKAN MENGALAMI NASIB YANG SENGSARA, ADA 40 ORANG TKI KABURAN YANG MEMAKAI NARKOBA DAN DIPERKOSA
 

 
Menurut laporan berita, ada kelompok buruh illegal yang dipimpin oleh Tuan Chen, yang mengendalikan 40 orang TKI kaburan dengan narkoba, tidak hanya upah dikurangi, sepulang kerja mereka ditempatkan di tahanan rumah di sebuah asrama sempit, di antara mereka, banyak perempuan dan pekerja asing yang dipaksa melakukan hubungan seksual, jika tidak patuh diancam akan dilaporkan ke departemen imigrasi. Lingkungan yang sengsara seperti rumah budak. Asia tenggara group memohon kepada TKI agar memperhatikannya, jika ada masalah dalam pekerjaan, mohon hubungi agensi, telpon ke 02-2763-1234, agar tidak terjadi penyesalan dikemudian hari.
 

 
MISERABLE OF RUN AWAY FOREIGN WORKER.FORTY FOREIGN WORKERS RUN AWAY WERE FED TO THE DRUG ALSO SEXUAL ASSAULT
 
According to news reports, surnamed Chen Group, led by illegal labor brokers to drug centralized control of 40 run away foreign workers, not only salaries cut wages, after work, they will be under house arrest in cramped quarters, some of female foreign workers were also forced sexual relations with Mr. Chen, if not follow Chen's Instruction will notification to the Immigration Department arrest threat, tragic environment like sex slave camp. Southeast Asia Group, please remind all foreign workers should pay attention, if any problem about the work, please contact the company (02) 2763-1234, in order to avoid the occurrence of regret.

 

 

 

●  (3) Taiwan has long time records abusing foreign laborers, according to US state gov. human rights reports

 

 (4)  The employer is a victim of political persecution
        
Therefore, had Ummi experienced some pressures (or had secrets) from bad politicians to ask her run some risks to do or say something?  the evil powers may cover her running away ?  Ummi, should stand up and speak out to the whole world !  be courageous !!

 

 

 

 

ending: 

       If anyone found her, M.  Ummi , pls. report the police or related units.     The China Times ( 中國時報 ) at 9-12-2015 : Taiwan's Ministry of Labor give reward money NT5000 ~ 20000 to anyone who report   illegal run-away (or lost-contact) foreign laborer(s), NT 20000~70000 to anyone reporting illegal broker-agent(s).
 

       The site will give extra prize(s) equaling about NT5000 to the one reporting police and hence get M. Ummi caught.  (~ 2020)

What makes Taiwan’s foreign workers flee?

 

 

★   Formosa TV English News  (民視英語新聞) 3-25-2019 
 
Phony tourists aside, the whereabouts of some 52,000 foreign workers is also unknown. These workers came to Taiwan legally to pursue employment. Why have they run away, and where do they go?

Foreign workers who want to work in Taiwan legally must first pay brokerage fees in their home countries. Ah-hsiung himself entered Taiwan with US$6,000 of debt. In comparison, fees for entering Taiwan on a tourist visa and working illegally are cheap, costing between US$1,000 and US$2,000.  Of course these workers want to lower the cost of leaving their country, because their end goal is to make money.

Secondly, the system does not allow foreign workers to change employers freely. So if, as a worker, you have problems with your employer and you haven''t yet fully paid your brokerage fee or settled your debt, and on top of that you are not making any money, what would you do? You might decide to run away. Agencies claim that high brokerage fees are not completely to blame for runaway workers.  Employment services group Brokerage fees are not the main cause for escaping. That''s an erroneous assumption.  Over half of the workers that run away are caretakers, you know what I mean? They pay a brokerage fee of US$1,000 but they still run away. It''s the lowest fee. Many workers flee in hopes of finding better-paying jobs. But after running away, many end up realizing that the promises of higher wages were all lies.  Ah-hsiangVietnamese caretaker For example, there are many employers that will offer you a salary of NT$40,000. But after you pack your bags and move there, they tell you it''s not that much. They then pay us the same wages that we had earned when working legally. We make the same amount of money for harder work. 

Where do all these runaways end up?  Chen Hsiu-lienTaiwan International Workers'' AssociationAs far as I know, construction, agriculture and caretaking are the sectors where escapees end up. These are three of our biggest industries, but Taiwan hasn''t been able to meet their labor needs.  Scholars say labor shortages are widespread and not limited to these a few industries ...  (brief)
