Interior Minister Muammer Guler said at a news conference in Istanbul Thursday the Foreigners and International Protection law will "find a balance between public safety and the rights of foreigners."
A new department of government will be organized to police migration management in and out of the country, and Turkey will no longer receive immigrants whose entry into other countries was rejected, Guler said.
The law has strong provisions to protect the rights of human trafficking victims, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News said Friday.
