Dear Mr Goh,
Your statement implies that you and LHL opened the immigration floodgate without really understanding the full 360-degree consequences.
The issue is not skilled immigrants v/s locals. Locals are skilled too but they are being marginalized in competition for jobs created in Singapore.
The issue is – no other country including immigrant friendly countries such as US, Australia, Canada allows reckless immigration without any consideration for its own citizens which has nearly destroyed core social fabric of the society.
We are human beings and not just economic digits for elite economists.
These foreigners don’t have roots in Singapore whereas our families depend on our livelihood.
Have you considered the impact on our young generation due to the paranoia that their parents are going through?
