Website To Report On Illegal Foreigners

Author: Nicolas Delerue, Issue: March 2004, Topic: Immigration

The immigration bureau of the Justice Ministry now offers the possibility to report on a special form the presence of illegal foreigners in one's neighbourhood. The forms ask details on the foreigner (address, working place, etc.) but also the reason for which the tip is given. Pre-set choices for the reason of the tip includes "causing anxiety" or "causing a nuisance to the neighbourhood". According to Amnesty international this service will encourage "reports without any concrete proof" and will "fan aversion and anxiety" toward non-Japanese.
