The UK Border Agency has issued a swift response to the report published by the London School of Economics, which claims that an amnesty for illegal migrants would be worth £3 billion to the United Kingdom economy.

A UK Border Agency spokesperson said: 

‘The policy on an amnesty for illegal immigrants remains unchanged and is very clear – there will be no amnesty, those here illegally should go home.

‘We have a proud tradition of offering sanctuary to those who truly need our help, but to grant an amnesty would create a significant pull factor to the UK and would undermine the asylum system as a whole.’

Supporting an outright amnesty would be political suicide for any of the main parties in the current climate, which has seen the BNP win its first seat in the European Parliament this month.

The Government is more likely to introduce a less controversial “regularisation” scheme for a section of overstaying migrants, such as failed asylum seekers.

  1. Illegal Immigrants are the side effect of the UK’s foreign policy, wheter you like it or not, they are here to stay…

  2. A thorough study should be made with regards to the illegals here in the UK. The truth of the matter is, illegals would stay here whenever they can. What are the benefits? A lot of them are working here already but are not paying taxes. The media is highlighting the negative aspects, how about the positive aspects? Politicians are afraid that the public would turn against them even though amnesty is the right choice.
