Migrant Raids Impede Vaccination Goal

Over the weekend, 156 undocumented migrants were arrested in a raid operation that is supposedly meant to help them register for valid documents and get vaccinated. First, we look at what happened on the night of the raid and how this has impacted the migrant community. Then, we replay an excerpt of an interview from Live & Learn, where YB Nurul Izzah Anwar discusses the government's treatment of migrants. Finally, we look at why it's crucial for vaccination efforts to reach migrants, and the importance of cultivating trust in the process.
