UKBA fines Tesco £115,000 for employing foreign students over 20 hours per week

  1. Bernie says :

    There are many thousands who should not be here and they are the reason the UK is drained of property, benefits, health care etc.
    Absolute joke of Europe and possibly worldwide.
    The UKBA workforce/ my colleagues at ground level/ operational are the ones in the firing line and yet the hierarchy including the do-gooders are the people responsible for the whole immigration/border farce.

  2. An asylum claim, I assume.

  3. I am shocked at the fact that an over stayer who came to the UK on a 6month visit visa was allowed to stay despite her sponsor constantly informing immigration that she has no valid reason to stay. Further more despite being informed she had family back home she was allowed to apply for Asylum based on lies and it’s over two years and she is still in the UK. Can someone pleae explain on what basis is she here??
