A strict immigration policy has helped make Japan one of the world’s oldest and most homogeneous societies. However, in order to address the shrinking work force, Prime Minister Abe announced plans to increase the number of migrant workers invited to fill vacant positions. Though the government has not released any numbers, it is said the invitations may increase the migrant workforce by up to 40 percent. Anti immigration protests held in Tokyo were followed by anti -racist protests. Pray that changes taking place will cause unease that results in many seeking spiritual peace and stability in Jesus Christ (The Bible, Isaiah 43:19).

Abe wants foreigners to bolster Japan’s shrinking workforce but finds vocal resistance
