Influx of Chinese in PH : A security threat

Since the warming of ties between China and the Philippines under the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, the Department of Tourism has been happy with the numbers of arrivals coming from the Asian giant.
Chinese tourist remain on the top 3 of source of foreign arrivals in the country.

"As the National Security Adviser, I have the tendency to look at it as a threat," he said.
"I’m on the cautious side. When foreigners, regardless of nationality, come in, and their intent is not clear. Or when some of them are undocumented, or have false documentation."
The National Security adviser said that it is not a bad idea to start looking into the work of the agencies concerned with the entry of foreigners, to see if the proper processes are being followed.

"If we have such things as rules of naturalization, rules of labor, and they are not followed, bakit nagkakaganoon?" he said.
“Mayron bang diperensya ang ating immigration officers? Tatanungin ko si Commissioner Morente, dahil sa pagkakaalam ko, napaka-strikto niyan. Nakikita ba niya lahat ng ginagawa ng mga tao niya, kung nababantayn ba kung ano yung pagpasok.”
