Another change in immigration rules on cards for removal of foreign offenders

Another change in the immigration rules is on the cards to see the removal of foreign offenders having no right to stay in the UK.


A Home Office spokesman said: “Detaining and removing foreign criminals, who flout the rules is vital to protecting the public and to safeguarding the economy by controlling immigration.

“It is not acceptable that foreign offenders are winning more than 60 per cent of allowed appeals to stay under the right to a family life.

“We will shortly be changing the immigration rules to reflect the public interest in seeing the removal from the UK of those who should be removed.”

The assertion came after figures released by Tory MP Priti Patel suggested yust about 39 people out of 456 at the Morton Hall detention centre were deported in the five months since it reopened last May.

Damian Green, Immigration Minister, has already stated: 'The immigration system we inherited was chaotic and this government is working to fix the mistakes of the past by making better decisions, ensuring cases are properly tracked, improving intelligence and speeding up removals….'

The Home office too has all along been stating: Dealing with historic cases is just one way that the government has improved the asylum system. It has also brought costs down, doubled the number of failed asylum seekers removed within one year of their application and now concludes cases quicker with almost two thirds decided within a month.
