Come on Koh Wee Sing Head, Public & Internal Communications, Corporate Communications Division, Immigration & Checkpoints Authority, in the light of it being made a matter of public record that:
— a 30-something sexy looking Chinese citizen working as a shop assistant being made a PR (She had come to prominence when she violently assaulted an SMRT officer for daring to ask her to pay her child’s fare);
— two PRC PRs who were hawkers;
— a Chinese dolly bird that was given PR status but then returned to China, and making fun of how easily she got her PR status; and
— one in three second-generation PRs do not serve NS, a reflection on their parents’ (first generation) attitudes towards S’pore,
how can you write with a straight face the following:
In assessing applications for citizenship, permanent residence (PR) or immigration facilities, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority adopts a holistic, calibrated approach, which includes interviewing the applicant and sponsor, where necessary.
Each PR application is evaluated on its own merits based on a set of criteria, including the individual’s economic contribution, qualifications, age, family profile and ability to integrate well into Singapore society.
Yr idea of a holiday season joke?
