UK will not offer amnesty for illegal immigrants

The Home secretary of United Kingdom Theresa May has ruled out the possibility that the government will offer amnesty for Illegal immigrants in Britain. According to her this will send a wrong message to the foreigners. According to a recent statistical data of the London School of Economics and Political Science, there are more than 1 000 000 people. The exact number is of course unknown.  Most of those people have either entered the country illegally on boats or have been first on temporary visas and then did not leave the country after the visa had expired. Mrs May told The House ‘I think if you have an amnesty, what you are likely to end up with is not a situation which helps with the control of immigration but a situation where more people try to come to the UK illegally because the message you’re giving is that at some stage that’s going to be ok, and that’s the problem with the amnesty’.

According to Theresa May, most of the ethnic minorities in UK support the new curbs that are imposed on illegal immigrants. The reason for this is that they feel that the illegal immigrants are destroying the image of the foreigners, who work legally in UK. The idea that amnesty for illegal immigration should be rejected was not without its critics. For example the London Mayor Boris Johnson said that there is already an effective amnesty and he recommended that this is made official so that immigrants who are already living and working in Great Britain start paying social security and taxes.
