Surely it's better to try to turn this around than keep bringing in people to replenish the local population, especially if they cannot become citizens without renouncing their other citizenship(s) beforehand...


BTW, I understand Japan, with a larger aging population, are informally making people with experience in geriatric care PR status, as long as they commit to a certain # of years

A few Filipino nurses have 'migrated' to Japan ..

as for fertility and balancing population, if it was not told before, let me say it .

the idea is to win the next election, and increasing population is one sure way to loose the election ..


You mean via migration and not child birth. Presumably the PAP has modellled the new votes for the PAP from new citizens vs the votes lost to old citizens who don't like the new citizens and made a decision.

The new citizens may hate the growing population with even more hatred than the old citizens. A neophyte syndrome.

It's so inspiring to see such a selfless offer. There is hope for this country after all. :)

They've spent 30 years telling people not to have children.

'Well hello!!' to the result.
