Protesters in Bishkek demand action against migrants


BISHKEK -- Hundreds of activists gathered at Ala-Too Square in Bishkek Thursday (January 17), urging the government to deport illegal Chinese migrants and to stop granting them citizenship, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported.

All Chinese migrants in Kyrgyzstan are there legally, Foreign Ministry official Almaz Imangaziyev told the demonstrators.

The demonstrators demanded that the government inspect all Chinese businesses in Kyrgyzstan to locate illegal immigrants.

They also voiced support for ethnic Kyrgyz who are reportedly incarcerated in re-education camps in Xinjiang Province, China, a claim denied by Beijing.

Every person should do their thing. The elected president should lead the country, the government is the executive branch, lawmakers are in the parliament. A constructor builds houses, a road builder does roads, a worker works at the factory, a doctor treats patients, a teacher teaches children, a vendor vends - everything will be fine in the country then. It looks like a layman who has no idea about governing categorically dictates the government how to run the country. No country, including the USA, would have allowed such demands. There should be order and stability, peace and moderation in the country and that would help in its development.
