(MENAFN - Arab News) There are about five million illegal expatriates in the Kingdom who are, according to police reports, allegedly behind 60 percent crimes in the country.

The Shoura Council will discuss the issue of growing illegal expatriates during a regular session next week, press reports said.

Most of these undocumented foreigners have either overstayed their Haj and Umrah visas or entered the Kingdom illegally.

The Foreign Affairs Committee at the consultative body has called for a quick solution to illegal aliens who live mainly in Makkah, Jeddah, Taif, Madinah, Yanbu, Riyadh, and the Eastern and southern provinces.

The Shoura panel proposed the formation of a committee comprising representatives from the ministries of foreign and interior to send illegals back to their home countries in coordination with their embassies.

It also called for intensifying measures to prevent illegals from remaining in the country as they form a big threat to the Kingdom's security. The report referred to increasing crimes among the Burmese community in the Kingdom.
