The fast approaching deadline of February 4 for amnesty to illegal residents is making many illegal workers think hard on whether to exit the country or not. The idea of returning home to start life afresh is a daunting prospect for most who have been sending money home to run their families. Although the law will allow them to return on an employment visa, many do not feel that it might be true. They feel that they will be banned for life. Also most of them are unable to find an employer to issue them a visa to come back.
Many are going to take a chance and make money as long as they can and if they are caught, they feel that after a short term jail they will be deported. They would rather put that day away for some time !!
