More than 100 Filipinos are being held at Japanese Immigration Bureau’s detention centers, after the deportation of 75 others over the weekend.
Filipinos comprise the largest group of foreign nationals held at these detention centers for being illegal aliens in Japan, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs.
The DFA has yet to be advised when Japan plans to undertake the next wave of deportation.
Filipino illegals account for the third largest number of over-stayers in Japan, next to South Koreans and the Chinese.
Some 75 Filipinos overstaying in Japan were deported over the weekend as the Japanese government began sending home immigrants lacking proper documents, the DFA said.
