(YANGON, Myanmar Mizzima) - Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) sent back 18 Rohingyas to Burma on Tuesday, according to Bangladeshi media.

The Rohingyas had been detained at different locations in Cox's Bazar, according to a named commanding officer of BGB 17 Battalion.

Meanwhile, Dhaka-based The Daily Star reported on Wednesday that 17 other Rohingyas, including women and children, had been detained after being apprehended on a passenger bus on the Cox's Bazar-Teknaf highway that afternoon.

“Of the detainees, Mabia Katun said she and many other Rohingyas fled Myanmar and moved to Bangladesh three years ago,” the report said.

Quoting local police, the report said that, in general, the Rohingyas were spreading out from the Rohingya slum in Kutubpal to different parts of Bangladesh in search of livelihoods.

Pay attention to how the rest of the world deals with "undocumented" workers...

Editor: Yeah use that as an excuse for what?  Americans are all imported, we are all here 'illegally' because we stole the damned place from the Native Americans.  Anyway just be glad for where you were born and be a little nationalist if you want, don't worry about the way the USA has f*cked Mexico and other nations south of our border for the last 60+ years, destroying their economies with our bullshit racist superiority, don't worry about the suffering children, don't let the fact that the US drug war has destroyed these countries bug you, because we'll probably have problems in this country that will dwarf what we are seeing now - karma is a bitch -  and they will impact us directly.  Love you guys but you seriously crack me up spouting this ultra-nationalist bullshit and you can say it isn't racism but you wouldn't fight them if their skin was white, which defines racism.  Finally, you remind me of that line in 'Independence Day' - "Damned illegal aliens" - hey at least there is time to snivel over little shit, that is after all the Amerikan way right?
