SABAH, MALAYSIAN BORNEO INVISIBLE CHILDREN

When security forces roll into town, people run in all directions, desperate to escape. In their haste, they knock over trays of fish for sale at the local market. 
It is another raid by authorities seeking to flush out hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants in the Malaysian state of Sabah. 
Hiding in the shadows are tiny figures, the children of migrants who are growing up stateless. 
Born in Malaysia but citizens of no country, they cannot access public schools or healthcare. 
In this critical investigation, Al Jazeera’s 101 East exposes the hidden struggles of Sabah’s undocumented children.
Estimated to number at least 50,000, Sabah’s hidden children are among Malaysia’s most vulnerable. They are at constant risk of being detained and deported. With their families struggling to earn enough to feed them, some resort to sniffing glue to stave off hunger.
