The government of Pakistan wants to make illegal immigrants leave the country by November 1st. This includes millions of Afghan refugees. Police have been rounding up Afghan migrants and sending them back to Afghanistan. The law in Pakistan says that anyone born in Pakistan after a certain date is a citizen. The law has changed a bit over time, especially after Bangladesh separated from Pakistan. This change meant that a lot of people who were citizens of Pakistan lost their citizenship. Many Biharis, who were loyal to Pakistan, were stranded in Bangladesh and were not considered citizens of Pakistan anymore. The government has not been very helpful in bringing them back to Pakistan. This shows that Pakistan has not changed its thinking about citizenship since the 1970s.
