KUALA LUMPUR, April 25, 2020 - The government will not compromise on ensuring the country's borders and sovereignty are not compromised by illegal immigrants (PATI).

Senior Minister Dato' Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said enforcement agencies have been directed to plug illegal routes into the country, as an influx of migrants could jeopardise initiatives undertaken to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

Thus far, 84 individuals who tried to sneak into Malaysia through the backdoor have been nabbed.

Police have detained 19,434 individuals for breaching the movement control order since March 18.
