Foreign Criminals Cost Us £850 Million

Imprisoned - But Now What?

Imprisoned – But Now What?

We all know that when Tony Blair welcomed five and a half million immigrants into our country he didn’t do us any favours, but he also let in a lot of criminals. Apart from the load having to be carried by the Benefits System, NHS and housing, these criminals are now costing the British tax payer £850 million a year that could be better spent helping our own.

Those that are caught can be sent to prison, but the fact is, once they have served their term the authorities have enormous difficulty in deporting them. Because of the ridiculous restraints placed on our Justice System by the E.U. in Brussels we cannot send them back where they came from. Literally thousands of immigrant career criminals remain in the U.K. simply because we cannot deport them.

Our Justice System has become so lax that one foreign convict in six ducks under the radar and cannot be found. Of the rest, it’s the same old story, appeal after appeal. The U.K. currently has 4,200 foreign criminals living within communities, and thousands of offenders are setting up home in this country instead of being deported.

Since 2006 the number of foreign prisoners has risen by 4% while the number of deportations has fallen. Because of all the appeals, it takes almost ten years to deport a convicted criminal from our shores. That’s almost as long as it took to get rid of Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa. This is clearly ridiculous!

James Brokenshire, the Immigration and Security Minister has reportedly said: “The countless appeals and re-appeals lodged by criminals attempting to cheat the system cost us all money and are an affront to British justice. Too little progress has been made, despite the increased resources and effort devoted to this problem.”

However, changes are being made to the Immigration Act that will hopefully make the system easier. James Brokenshire said during the interview: “New powers came into force this week to cut the number of grounds on which criminals can appeal their deportation and to end the appeals conveyor belt in the courts. The Immigration Act will help us deliver an immigration system that is fair to the people of this country and legitimate immigrants and tough on those who flout the rules.” All I can say is let’s hope so!

This appeal farce has been going on far too long and it is well past time we toughened up the system so these people cannot slip through the net. Our entire Justice System has become a mockery, where just sentences cannot be handed out because we might trample on someone’s human rights!

But there is another reason for this failure. Government auditors found almost 1,500 failed removals, and of those a third might have been avoided if there had been fewer administrative errors, and better co-ordination between different government departments. It is a sad fact that only one in every 25 files sent to the Home Office to start the process for removal had the right identity documents. It would seem the Tory Party and David Cameron just cannot get their hands around this problem and deal with it effectively.

The Law and Human Rights

It is without doubt time we got rid of the Human Rights Laws as dictated by Brussels and went back to the tried and tested system of British Justice as it was before all this E.U. nonsense. The right to appeal should of course be given, but then it should be restricted to three times within a maximum of three months and no more. This current system of repeating appeals for years and years until you get what you want is ridiculous. In that way, these parasites can be gone after three months and it will hopefully serve as a warning to the rest.

Sham Marriage To Avoid Deportation

Sham Marriage To Avoid Deportation

Some of the more ridiculous successes in avoiding deportation I have reported on before, usually involving Clause 8 of the Human Rights Act: The Right to Family Life. As has happened, many immigrant criminals have abused this Act by marrying a British girl, which means they cannot be deported under this Statute. So far as I am concerned, He should still go and his wife can choose to go with him or not.

Why should this country be home to foreigners who cannot live within the law, we have more than enough of our own!
