MORE THAN 300 undocumented Chinese workers, including seven minors, were deported on Tuesday, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) reported. In a statement, BI said “it has deported 294 Chinese nationals in two chartered flights earlier today at the Puerto Princesa International Airport.” They were arrested last Sept. 16 for working without permit in eight hotels and restaurants. The seven minors were nabbed on the same day. BI Intelligence Division Chief Fortunato C. Manahan said they were arrested for “violating the conditions of their stay by working in the country without the necessary permits and visas.” — Gillian M. Cortez
