Cutting Down Illegal Immigrants

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Home secretary John Reid spoke out on the BBC news this morning about how he plans to reduce illegal immigration in the UK. New plans include introducing ID cards for foreign nationals, using text messaging to alert when visa’s are due to expire, high landlord fines for anyone housing an illegal immigrant and the generation of a ‘watch list’ of people who aren’t entitled to public services.

Mr. Reid stated “It is unfair that foreigners come to this country illegitimately and steal our benefits, steal our services like the NHS and undermine the minimum wage by working”.

I personally agree with Mr. Reid and hope they are able to implement the suggestions made this morning. However as usual, this will cost millions of pounds to put into action so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
