1. Why do people give up their citizenship???
2. Why do people apply for PR status???

I am not so sure, but I THINK, the main reason for No.1, are because they felt their present country is not worth it, and the country of their choice will be better for them and their family. There are possibility that they had no choice ... and so could be other reason as well.

As for No. 2, it could be due to requirement, or the first step to getting citizenship. Now, to me as long as someone feels that a/any country could fullfill his needs, he should make a choice that will be good to him/her and their family.

Suddenly, our Envoy to the US wants to offer those people who gave up their CITIZENSHIP, even if he feels that they NO LONGER WANT TO BE ...

Is PRIDE to CHEAP ????????

Envoy : Give PR status to former M'sian citizens

ROMPIN : The government should consider offering permanent resident (PR) to more than 200,000 former Malaysian nationals who are now US citizens to create a strong economic network between both countries, said Malaysian ambassador to the United States Datuk Seri Jamaluddin Jarjis.

He said this was because most of the former Malaysians worked in various professional fields and held important posts in multi-national companies, which could benefit Malaysia. "Although they are no longer Malaysian citizens and no longer want to be, their heart still lies in Malaysia"

Jamaluddin told reporters yesterday the presence of former Malaysians in the country would also inject foreign currency into the economy each year. He said if one of them spend as much as US$10,000, (RM38,000) in the country, US$2 billion (RM7.6 billion) would be channeled into Malaysia annually.

Jamaluddin said the suggestion to offer PR status would be brought up to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak who is schedule to have a meeting with US President Barrack Obama by year end. - Bernama

When someone wants something, let them ask nicely, if it is worth it, and benefit Malaysian why not, but PLEASE Mr Envoy don't make us look so desperate, we deserve better.

Remember Malaysia FIRST.
