Importing Criminals

It's long been recognised that the immigration system in the UK is broken. Unfortunately, the government seems unwilling to do anything at all about it.

Eighty foreign killers are exploiting the chaotic asylum system to set up home in Britain, it was revealed yesterday.

The convicted murderers from Albania have been given British passports despite being officially listed as 'wanted' by Interpol.

And it doesn't just end there-

The scandal came to light when Albania's chief of police complained that 100 criminals from his country have been granted British citizenship and now live here.

The police chief said the criminals have been allowed to stay even though the Albanian government has informed the Home Office of the true identities of the men and their crimes, which also include rape and robbery.

Of course the usual canard about their human rights is trotted out as a reason that they cannot be simply removed from the country. The government seems entirely oblivious to the human rights of British citizens who may be at risk from these criminals.
