The UKBA reports that six illegal immigrants from Nepal have been removed from the UK after an agency raid on a house in Isleworth.
Acting on intelligence, officers visited the property on Wood Lane on the morning of Tuesday 10 July.
They arrested 4 men and 2 women, all aged between 20 and 24, who were all in the UK illegally having overstayed their visas.
All 6 were detained until they were removed on a flight back to Nepal on the 16 July.
Assistant Director Sarah Burton, from the UK Border Agency, said:
‘This was a hugely successful operation and UK Border Agency officers are carrying out raids like this across west London almost every day.
‘We continue gather intelligence about people who remain in the UK in breach of their visa conditions and we are taking action against those not entitled to be here.
‘Those with no right to be in the UK must leave the country. If they refuse, we will enforce their removal.’

This week it was revealed that the UKBA spent £9million this year chartering 37 flights, equating to £250,000 per plane. Some flights are leaving nearly empty after last-minute appeals from those facing deportation.
Immigration Advisers Bison Management has dealt with many cases of migrants who have overstayed their visa period. Immigration Adviser Cynthia Barker said:
‘Overstaying applicants are normally automatically refused unless there is a strong case for a human rights appeal or for instance where they are in a relationship or have a child with British or EEA national’.
