【看英文中國郵報學英文】台北(移民署)移民署說明,累計自961月至1086月底,生母為失聯移工或不實身分者,屬非本國籍之無依兒少有754人。

According to the National Immigration Agency (NIA), Taiwan recorded 754 unregistered newborns of migrant workers from January 2007 to June 2019. These children are either currently missing or living with forged identities.

移民署基於移工人權保障及兒童最佳權益考量,查獲懷孕或攜有幼子的失聯移工,原則均依法予以收容替代處分,由當事人覓妥適當人士或機構具保,或繳交保證金,並由專勤隊協助渠等儘速辦妥返國手續。

Yet, the National Immigration Agency has embarked on safeguarding their rights and those of absconded migrant workers by providing them with shelters instead of handling out punishment. If the workers have guarantors or pay a safety deposit, they will receive assistance with legal procedures to return to their home country. In other words, the National Immigration Agency encourages absconded workers to seek help from local branches of the Department of Social Welfare or government authorized childcare centers.

移民署另表示,針對生父不詳,外國籍生母失聯的無依兒少,內政部於106年已函頒相關作業流程,在協尋生母期間,由社政單位協助安置,經國內外協尋生母未果,由內政部認定為無國籍後,即可辦理收出養及歸化國籍,現行作業可完善保障無依兒少權益。

Since 2017, children born of an unknown father who have also lost contact with their mother are taken into government care. The NIA will look for the children’s birth parents at home and abroad for six months before putting them for adoption and having them naturalized according to the nationality of their adoptive parents. The National Immigration Agency believes that the current measures can effectively protect the rights of unregistered children of migrant parents. ●
