Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David, Jr. said on Tuesday that he will not resign until all corrupt officials and employees of the agency are eliminated.

However, he told radio station DZRH during an interview that he would not be bothered if President Aquino removes him, saying “I will continue pursuing his marching order ridding the service of corruption.”

He said that despite the management's all out anti-corruption campaign some insiders still persist in doing under-the-table deals, which to them are normal things to do.

The BI has been under fire recently following a series of flights of local and foreign fugitives via the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and other ports, notably investment swindler Park Sung Jun and former Palawan Governor Joel Torres, the principal suspect in the slaying of an environmentalist.

The immigration chief admitted that some BI personnel are members of syndicates who facilitates the entry and exit of undesirable aliens, and are into the lucrative racket of  helping local fugitives escape to foreign lands.

He said the syndicate is made up of erring immigration people and personnel of other agencies assigned at international ports.

He mentioned an employee of the  transportation department who was seen in  closed-circuit television assisting Park in getting his boarding pass at the NAIA.

David said Korean police authorities have not shown any displeasure for the BI"s failure to capture Park as he was immediately arrested upon his arrival in Korea.

He said that the BI has been very cooperative on the requests of foreign governments to apprehend and deport  their wanted nationals hiding here.

According to  David, a total of 15 Korean fugitives  was arrested and deported during the past two years.
