In the light of the Bureau of Customs' suggestion to impose higher taxes and inspection of balikbayan boxes, Kris Aquino answered her followers' pleas on her Instagram for her help in quelching this ruling.
Kris actually posted a photo of her shooting a scene at the Clark International Airport for her movie Etiquette for Mistresses. The actress was waiting behind a customs signboard. This triggered the outpour of messages from OFWs and their relatives on her social media account.
"To all the OFWs & relatives/friends of our OFWs, I already forwarded your concerns w/c you very clearly stated on my thread in my previous post to those in a position to not only address them but hopefully study, clarify, and act on policies that have a direct impact on you, your sacrifices, and your love for family that motivates not just you, but all of us to work hard," she said in her post.
Kris added that although she is not in office, she hopes she will be able to help them the best she can.
