Hundreds of foreigners arrested for their part in the riots now face deportation.
Immigration Minister Damian Green has promised foreign rioters and looters will be thrown out of Britain at the ‘earliest opportunity’.
Around 150 of the 2,800 people arrested over the looting and arson attacks were born abroad, according to the UK Border Agency.
Most rational people wouldn’t trash their own home. Those who do, well, there’s something really wrong with them. So, you would think, if you are basically a guest in someone’s home, you wouldn’t go out of your way to trash it, right? Obviously, such a courtesy is no longer the norm.
They include a failed asylum seeker who is accused of looting clothes and cash from a branch of department store BHS in Walthamstow, East London.
Out of complete curiosity, if this guy was a “failed asylum seeker”, why was he still in the country? Shouldn’t he have been deported already? Just wondering.
Yesterday Immigration Minister Damian Green said: ‘We strongly believe that foreign national lawbreakers should be removed from the UK at the earliest opportunity.
Gee, ya think?
‘We also have the power to cancel the visas of foreign nationals found guilty of criminal activity, and this is something we will be looking to do when cases arise.
I should sure hope so! Honestly, if they don’t, then they are bigger wusses than even I thought. Now, if we could just get U.S. officials to take a strong stand about criminal “immigrants”.
