Granting Amnesty for illegal immigrants in UK

1980

Whilst I am not an advocate of illegal immigration, I firmly believe that granting amnesty to illegal immigrants particularly at this time when the UK is preparing to leave EU will make perfect sense and the benefits are more than the costs. Deporting an estimated 500,000 people is not only “Mission Impossible” but it is costly and may take many years.
Legitimising these people will enhance the taxpayers’ purse, fill vacant jobs and will help reduce immigration caseload within the courts. It is also important to educate the native people of the benefits of regularising the status of these people. The Government should also ensure that in future such illegal immigrants at this scale will not recur by putting in place a robust system that is adequately fit for purpose.
