Damn criminals who want to help Taiwanese people for free, get the bums out of the country. It's much better if they're out drinking and womanizing.
It is not idiotic since then people could claim to be volunteering when they are actually working. They could bring in a Filipino nurse and say she was volunteering at the hospital. English teachers who get busted could claim to be volunteers. Some laobans would start holding English classes in churches and have volunteer teachers while not paying taxes on any of it.
