The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has arrested and deported an illegal immigrant on his wedding day last week.

There were no “many happy returns” from the UKBA as officers arrested the 29 year Jamaican minutes before he was due to marry his British fiancée on Friday 3 July at Birmingham Register Office.

The illegal immigrant, who was living in Birmingham, had overstayed his visitor’s visa. Acting on “intelligence”, immigration officers arrested him outside the Register Office on Holliday Street before the ceremony could take place.

The man was then taken to an immigration detention centre where he remained until being returned to Jamaica today.

The UKBA removes an illegal immigrant from the UK every eight minutes.

It is estimated that between 600,000 and 1,000,000 people are illegally in the UK of which around 440,000 are thought to be in London.  

Successive Ministers have rejected calls for any form of amnesty and the current Border and Immigration Minister, Phil Woolas, had said that London Mayor Boris Johnson’s call for an amnesty was “naive” and would lead to more trafficking of people.  

Leading think tank, ippr, said it would it would take at least 20 years to find and remove half a million illegal immigrants.

  1. Back to op, saw this today on sky living and thought what a waste of public money. It says they were genuine so could marry in Jamaica. Suppose it helps get targets, but why do it

  2. how do you qualify as an ilegal imagrant in am in college and i need to know for some work i am doing

  3. I just got married at the registrar’s.minutes before time,the UKBA force came and questioned me about why I hv overstayed.they realised that I hv correct grounds such as family life as I hv a kid and a step daughter with my wife.they left a us to get married and they asked me to legalise myself after the occasion.i think it’s a right thing they are doing to prevent sham marriages.i actually support them

  4. WHERE DO I REPORT EVERYONE AND GET EVERY DAMN PERSON ON EARTH SENT TO HELL MUAHAHA I AM LIKE A POLICEMAN MUAHAHA

  5. so basically its a waist of time making a report then is it if they dont act on due to lack of resourse how is that taking it seriouse if they dont act on it so basically international students should work every one should work cash in hand because u wont get caught as the ukba aint got the resourse to stop this lol

  6. The UKBA record all reports and take them seriously. The employer could be raided and fine up to £10,000 per illegal worker. The student could have their visa revoked and be deported. However, they do not have the resources to act on every single report. They may only act if they receive more than one report.
    To report an immigration crime see:
    Report immigration crime or smuggling

  7. HI WERE DO I REPORT A INTERNATIONAL STUDENT FOR WORKING MORE THE HRS HE ALLOWED IS IT TO THE UKBA DO THE UKBA TAKE REPORTS SERIOUSLY DO THEY INVESTIGATE THE MATTER OR AM I JUS WASTING MY TIME

  8. The type of employers who pay ‘cash in hand’ are being targeted by UKBA officers who want to clamp down on illegal working. Many are caught as a result of tip off or report to the UK Border Agency. If they are caught their visas could be cancelled. Where a relationship is involved you could appeal against a removal order on Human Rights grounds. If you need advice on Human Rights or any other appeal, email info@mmigrationmatters.co.uk

  9. hi i no a student who studys full time and works full time with out paying tax gets paid cash in hand what happens if that student gets caught working.
    how do UKBA catch them do they follow them around for a bit or do they just go were they are working.
    what are the penalites for a student working. will they be deported or just get of with a warining. also this student will be getting married to a british citzen to remain in the uk as his visa will expir in the coming months. how do i report all this

  10. i live in Canada i want to give u the information about a illegal immigrant living in Manchester please give me your international number and email id i send u all his information and his photos.

  11. If they acted on a report and caught the student, he or she would normally be deported, unless there were special circumstances.

  12. If some student is working fulltime without going the college then someone report to the ukba what will ukba do in this situation. or some college has been collapsed and student didn’t join the new college what status will student get and what ukba will do for this kinds of immigrant.

  13. A illegal immigrant was found out by the UKBA and they let him free for a year and he was working too!!
    Is this what happens when the UKBA receive information from us – the public?
    Why are we wasting time giving then info just let immigrants live freely the are also human beings!!!
