Tuesday’s Yomiuri gave top play to a report that as a way to resolve the problem of long-term immigration detention of foreign nationals who have been issued deportation orders but refuse to leave Japan, the Immigration Services Agency has decided to introduce a new system to allow foreigners who have applied for asylum or are in litigation proceedings and are expected to be detained for more than six months to live in Japanese society under supervision. They will not be allowed to work and will be penalized if they flee from supervision. In addition, the paper said the agency will also establish a new system to accept foreign nationals who are unable to repatriate due to conflicts in their countries as “quasi-refugees” and allow them to stay in Japan for protection.
