More privileges for foreigners

Foreign employment pass dependants can stay, but some Singaporeans' foreign spouses can't?

As a Singaporean, I find it somewhat ironic that an average of 35,000 dependents of employment pass holders who are foreigners, entered Singapore each year from 2005 to 2010, of which about 4,200 have gained employment, when thousands of Singaporeans' foreign spouses were denied permission to live in Singapore, or to work here.

The above is by Leong Sze Hian from his article posted in TOC

Foreigner's dependants and wives can stay and work, those of Singaporeans can't. Leong Sze Hian was referring to a Malaysian wife of a Singaporean who died and would probably be deported. Now, does she have children that are Singaporeans and also own a HDB flat? Or they were not qualified?

It's no point trying to reason with deaf frogs.

Just continue to recruit voters for the Opposition.
And vote out another GRC/Minister in GE 2016.

When a foreigner takes up citizenship, does it mean that the family could also become citizens. Wife and children could be a natural thing. What about parents in law?

Compare this with a Sinkie marrying a foreign wife. No citizenship. Children status, I dunno. Should be citizens I think.

Good questions.
Doubt if the deaf frogs can or will give you a good explanation.
This explains a deaf frog's action.

This country had gone down the drain. The government is not listening to the people. Now you have one law for foreign criminals and another harsher one for Singaporeans. Police are found to be corrupt and biased. There is no more hope in Singapore. If one has even a small chance to leave this sickening place to live and start a new life somewhere else one should just jump on it, what can be worse than a country who treats its people as second class? Go for it you have nothing to lose.
