A leaked secret memo reveals Home Office officials changed guidelines in order to grant indefinite leave to remain (ILR) to 40,000 people because it is going to be too difficult to remove them, the Daily Telegraph reports.

They are among the backlog of 450,000 historic ‘legacy’ asylum cases which ministers have pledged to clear by 2011, even though many of the individuals would have eventually been removed.

It is alleged that some of the claimants have been in the country for as little as four years and will be allowed to stay because of the delays in processing claims.

Migrants on working visas must wait five years before being granted indefinite leave or residency. They also face stringent checks and must pass a Life in the UK test.

Many Senior Carers have been refused ILR because they have a gap in their work history – a gap caused by the UK Border Agency’s change in policy on Senior Carer Work Permits and subsequent transitional arrangements, which eventually led to a further change in the rules allowing the workers to renew their permits and visas. Thousands were caught out by earlier changes in the qualification period required for ILR from 4 to 5 years.

The memo also reveals ten of thousands of migrants who should have left the UK as long as a decade ago could still be here because the Home Office has no idea where they are – which sounds like a contradiction.

Some go as far back as the mid-1990s and means, if their circumstances have not changed, they are now illegal immigrants.

Chris Grayling, the shadow home secretary, said: “If we bend the rules to give people the right to stay, it gives all the wrong messages around the world about our immigration system.

“This looks like double standards from ministers, talking tough in public while quietly changing the system behind the scenes for political convenience.”

Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman, added: “The Government is prepared to quietly relax the rules in the interests of political expediency but still brag about its record on deportations.”

In 2006, John Reid, the then Home Secretary, announced there were up to 450,000 historic asylum files that had not been dealt with, some dating back to the 1990s and pledged to clear them by 2011.

The memo, from Matthew Coats, the head of immigration for UK Border Agency, is headed “Restricted – Policy. Completion of the legacy exercise” and reveals ministers now want the backlog cleared by December 2010.

He discusses how to deal with a cohort of 40,000 of the cases “which could not be granted indefinite leave to remain under he current parameters of the operational guidance… but which we will almost certainly not be able to conclude through removal”.

He says the main problem is difficulties in enforcing removals to certain countries and shows that Phil Woolas, the immigration minister, asked whether the cohort should be granted indefinite leave or some form of temporary leave.

Mr Coats is “loathe to recommend” what would have constituted a specific amnesty for the group, similar to one given to some families in 2004, or country-specific exceptional leave because of the “high profile” of such an approach.

Instead he suggests changing guidance on current immigration rules that effectively reduces the time individuals have to have been in the UK for them to have a strong case for indefinite leave – from 10-12 years to 6-8 years or even four to six in cases of difficult removal.

He says: “We do not believe the rule itself needs amendment. We do, however, need to make some amendments to the underpinning operational guidance to give caseworkers the necessary latitude to deal with this cohort.”

The memo was sent to Phil Woolas, the immigration minister, and Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, in July and hundreds have already been cleared to stay after it was signed off by Mr Woolas.

Immigration staff are also frantically working through another 40,000 historic files of migrants and visitors who were told before 2003 that they no longer had a right to stay in the country.

They are made up of individuals who were here on work permits, temporary leave to remain, student visas and visitor visas who were all turned down for extensions to their stay.

But no record has been made as to whether they ever left the country. Some may have left of their own accord and some may have applied under different visa routes and been granted stay but it still raises the prospect that tens of thousands of them could now be here unlawfully.

Damian Green, the shadow immigration minister, said: “This new discovery will only make the delays worse.”

Mr Huhne added: “Needle in the haystack operations like this are the direct consequence of decades of mismanagement of our borders.”

Mr Woolas said: “There is no amnesty.

“Our guidelines were updated to provide case workers with a simple framework to judge cases, and to avoid long drawn out court battles.

“No lawbreaker will be allowed to say, and each case is still decided on its individual merits.”

Mr Woolas insists that tThe UK Border Agency continues to ramp up performance and is concluding several thousand cases a month. 

‘Less than 40% of cases are being granted and I am confident that we will clear all of these cases by 2011.’ 

On the non-asylum backlog, he added:

“This is not a new backlog. The majority of these cases are from prior to 2003, and we believe many of these individuals will either have gone home, been removed following enforcement activity or been granted leave through a different route.”

Source: Daily Telegraph

The UK has an estimated 500,000 – 750,000 illegal workers, and leading think tank, ippr, says it would take 20 years and £5 billion to remove them.

The London School of Economics said in a recently published a report that granting amnesty to long-term illegal immigrants in the UK, could add up to £3bn to the economy. The LSE report added that an amnesty would not lead to a rise in migration but would raise spending on welfare services and housing. 

But in the current climate, where a recent ‘Yougov’ poll revealed that immigration is the second most important issue to voter, a full scale amnesty is unlikely.

    It is a real irony of life, to think that some people who have this stay are solely dependent on the system, collecting free money forever, while some others who are intelligent, hard working and want to make a good living for themselves, dont want to depend on the system are not granted the stay. i know some people that havr really suffered in this country. They are stucked here cant do nothing, cant go nowhere , or even get to see their loved ones, i think these ones should be considered. The govt should look inti this, how could someone be here for ten years, and have built a family life here be sent away just like that, or denied.

    Today, we are looking to speak to people ANONYMOUSLY – WE PROMISE NOT TO IDENTIFY THE PERSON SPEAKING…about the hardships involved in waiting for an asylum decision, the years of waiting and uncertaintly…what that feels like and if after a while, anyone has given up waiting for the Home Office and decided to work instead.

    Please can someone text me or call me. I can call you straight back. We really want to speak to people to explain how hard it is and why sometimes, it is easier to decide to go to work instead of waiting for a decision. All the interviews – we will NOT IDENTIFY the person. Please do not worry.

    hello there,
    My name is Jade Zhao, 8 years ago,I travelled more than 6000 miles from China came here for good life(I like this number 8)sorry! carry on, I found there are many good ‘jobs’ in here, for example, pick shells nearby shores,guess what? it is free and you can enjoy brilliant views and sunset when you picking up those fresh shells,sometimes,you can make a jokes with your female pickers.After picking,you can sit and relax your soured back with your partner, that’s really romantic. But bad news came in, a few years ago, several my colleges got drunk because of they didn’t have many experiences with those rough tides,and forget dress in life jackets, I was nearly escaped from that incident and police chasing mailly,phew……,that was really close. Well, I am thinking there must be other opportunities in here, Pirate DVD/CD etc., ennnn, this is good, when my family and relatives in China asked me what I do in UK, I will proudly told them I am working in ‘media centre’ do some technology distribution things,£1/4packs,people like these.But I found this job was boring too,the worse thing was I got a caught on street, I really had no idea, how the hell they knew it, ok, no problem! I still remember someone told me:
    Look!if you got a caught you just seek asylum on scene,right! that’s really good business, see!I met my wife in detention centre, and we have good life and a lovely 2 babies(another one is still on the way,sorry!)I guess if i can make a appeal some one can suggest triple-seat pram for me,for my return, I will sell them £1/6packs DVD films, GOOD QUALITY!
    Life is tough and good as well, it depends on how you kill your extra time, for me, the best places are Ladbrokes,Williamhills,ennn, that’s it, my question is when the hell I will get my ILR? and open my chinese takeaway,I heard people in this country like takeaway,that’s it! cheers.
    see you Ladbrokes then.

    I came here in Sept 2003 to study (MBA), but got invoved in an accident and injured my 2 knees the following June and have had 2 seperate operations. I also have a pain on my spine. My last review proved I am suffering from ostheoarthritis in my 2 knees; I have not been able to work the past 4 years. I have not depended on the government for anything as stipulated in my passport ie recourse to public funds.
    The pain I am going through affected my concentration and therefore my studies and so couldn’t follow my studies within time because of the strong pain killers I live on and still living on every day.
    My time on the programme of 5 years elapsed because I have been in and out of hospitals so the university withdrew me, though I was made to submit why I have not been able to complete my studies.
    My GP wrote to the university but according to them,it didn’t get to them.
    I appealed against the decision but all my letters to the university was never responded to, so instead of wasting my time and money in chasing them, I decided to opt for another programme and am almost through.
    This time,I wanted to study MBA Oil & Gas but was rather offered LLM Energy Law & Policy.
    My condition hasnt changed. I still go through pain but manage to attend my lectures wearing pain patch and heavy dose of pain killers. I swallow about 20 tablets and capsules daily just to keep me going.
    I have written all my exams within a year,ie 9 of them.
    I have been down with severe right hip pain since December 24, 2009 because I was not regular on my medications so that I could follow my lectures, because it gives me a lot of drowsiness. I can hardly sit upright so have to lie in bed, and am still lying in bed even as am emailing you. I am now left with just 2 research papers and my dissertation to graduate, but the Home office has persistently refused since December 31, 2008 to extend my visa and also have no right of appeal.
    I was asked to leave on 21 July 2009 with no right of appeal, but I was promised a legal aid by Fresh Talent Policy Team here in Scotland if I can get them to revoke the no right of appeal decision. I was advised to let my MP petition on my behalf.
    They didn’t reply to me until 26 April 2010 asking me to leave and reapply if I want to come back and finish with my studies.
    I petitioned the Prime Minister, but His secretary just wrote back asking me to continue to deal with the Home office because the office of the PM does not invlove itself in immigration matters.
    Though I attached my up to date medical report, they wouldn’t bulge. They still have my passport with them.
    What advice do you give me? Is there any way out?
    \thank you.

    The very fact that you use a phrase like ’round them up’ shows how ignorant you are about this situation. People who uproot themselves and move to another country only do this if they are strongly motivated to do so by terrible circumstances in their home countries. These are generally not hardened criminals but desperate people wanting to be able to feed their families. What the Lib Dem policy is saying is let’s allow people who are settled here after coming in illegally 10 or more years ago come out of the shadows, do some community service as a penance for this and work legitimately, thus paying taxes and contributing to the system rather than having to take up the patchy and poorly paid illegal work provided by gang masters. On our own doorsteps there are immigrants being treated like slaves because they have no rights as illegals and it is not within their power to get out of their situation. The Lib Dems are trying to give them the right to start again and get free from the criminals. In actual fact, anyone who has been here illegally anyway for 14 years under the present system can apply for citizenship, due to a law passed by Labour in 2003. Neither the Tories or Labour are proposing to change this.

    assylum seekers are not that anymore as there countries are doing better than ours so send them back and show the world we have backbone, or carry on as you are and in 5 years this country will lose a lot of good british, who are the ones to help build it up again.
