Walang Free Pass: Foreigners with permanent residency must follow PH laws - BI




Being a foreigner in this country does not carry the right not to respect and follow Philippine laws.

The Spanish citizen residing in Dasmarinas Village in Makati who was caught in video allegedly violated enhanced community quarantine measure and cursing at the policemen last weekend might face deportation proceedings, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said.


Javier Salvador Parra the foreigner in question is not exempted from the lockdown rules and "have to obey our laws," said Immigration Spokesperson Dana Sandoval.

"Ang visa po o any relationship dito sa Pilipinas -- kahit sabihin nating permanent resident po siya -- it's not a free pass for people, foreign nationals to do whatever they want dito sa Pilipinas," she told DZMMin an exclusive.
"Kahit may asawa po siyang Pilipina o siya ay residente dito o kung ano man ang status niya, maaari pa rin po siyang i-subject sa deportation proceedings," she added.
(The visa or any relationship here in the Philippines -- even if let's say he's a permanent resident -- it's not a free pass for people, foreign nationals to do whatever they want here in the Philippines. Even if he has a Filipina wife or he's a resident here, whatever his status is, he may still be subjected to deportation proceedings.)

Sandoval said "perhaps within the week" will give more details on its investigation against Parra.
