Thousands of Illegal Immigrants Are Being Freed ‘To Safeguard Their Human Rights’

James Slack, Daily Mail (London), May 30, 2012

Thousands of illegal immigrants have been caught by the authorities before being released ‘to protect their human rights’.

One in six of those granted bail later absconds – meaning they must be caught a second time at huge cost to the taxpayer.

Internal Home Office figures show that last year 1,665 immigration detainees were granted bail, of whom 277 later absconded.

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migrationwatch, said: ‘Trying to deport illegal immigrants inevitably takes a fair amount of time.

‘The courts should take account of this fact before releasing large numbers on bail, especially as they are fairly likely to abscond.’

When trying to deport an illegal immigrant, officials can either start legal proceedings or, in some cases, offer people bribes to go home.

Detainees can then only continue to be held in immigration centres if there is a good chance of them being imminently deported.

At the same time, others cite Article 8 of the Human Rights Act – which gives the right to a family and private life – meaning courts are forced to let them go pending appeals.

There are also often problems in locating documents to identify where immigrants are from – making it impossible to send them home. In many cases, documents have been destroyed deliberately.

Home Office officials have grown so frustrated they are planning a new enforcement strategy to keep tabs on illegal immigrants granted bail.

Among the measures, officials plan to make compliance visits to immigrants’ last known address.

Their details will also be circulated on the police national computer and there will be targeted tracing and consideration of prosecution.

The scandal is in addition to the large numbers of foreign criminals walking the streets.

Earlier this month, it emerged there are 3,900 overseas convicts on bail in the community.

Of these, 2,500 were released from jail more than two years ago – including 817 who have been at large for five years or more, UK Border Agency statistics showed.

Leaked papers have revealed how released foreign criminals on immigration bail have committed a string of violent crimes – including three murders, three kidnappings and 14 sexual offences, including rape.

This month it also emerged that, of the 1,103 foreign prisoners who were released without being considered for deportation, only 399 have been deported six years on.

    Criminals are walking our streets because of the EU inspired “Human Rights” Act.
    These criminals have commited, amongst other things, rape and murder!
    British citizens are, in effect, being asked to (potentially) sacrifice themselves at the altar of “Human Rights”; and the safety of British citizens is secondary to that of the criminals!
    Any British citizen who objects to being raped and/or murdered by these criminals is simply shouted down as racist or fascist!.

    And just where is the moral outrage from the MSM over the fact that Britsh citizens are being raped and murdered by criminals who should either be in prison or not here in the first place?!

    Yet when the Stephen Lawrence trial was going on, it was never out of the news!!

    • The same thing all over the West, my friend. The neo-communists are digging their own graves.  When it finally boils over in one country it will spread to the rest. We are in an awkward place, too late to do anything politically, but too soon for open rebellion.

    • “These criminals have commited, amongst other things, rape and murder!British citizens are, in effect, being asked to (potentially) sacrifice themselves at the altar of “Human Rights”; and the safety of British citizens is secondary to that of the criminals!”

      We point fingers across the Atlantic, recognizing the fell deeds our betrayers are committing in the name of “Human Rights” and, to a lesser extent, “Diversity”; sacrificing our bretheren to satisfy an extra-Governmental ruling body in Brussels.

      But how long will it take for this to happen here?

      Our economy is dying.  When it breathes its last, and paper money becomes worthless, what do you think will happen to all the illegals currently in custody?  All the illegals prevented from entering the Republic by the Border Patrol?  All the criminals, illegal or otherwise, in prisons all over the US?

      They will be released.  There will be no money to keep the prisons open, pay the guards, pay the electric bill.

      And so, in the name of “Human Rights”, because the State cannot care for them while they are incarcerated, the worst predators in our nation’s history will be released, their sentences commuted.

      Just imagine the havoc that will wreak upon an unsuspecting white citizenry, already marginalized by their own government and battered by the worst recession/depression in our history.

      What would I do in the face of this knowledge?

      Prepare NOW!  Move away from the cities – they will burn to the ground.  Find someplace in the country.  Form alliances with whites around you and in other neighborhoods, and make plans to defend what you have.  Be prepared to weather several years of Zimbabwe-style inflation, rampant gang violence, martial law and providing for you and yours.

  • Hey at least in 1984’s Oceania there were no illegal immigrants!

    Britain has been taken over by the same types over here that comprise the extreme left of the Democrat party.

    They’ve become even more of a dysfunctional state than the US has with its hordes of uneducated, unskilled laborers.

  • Miss Woodhouse and Emma West?  They have no human rights.

    • Miss Woodhouse and Emma West are my heroes!!   Sure they might have had a pint or two before their speeches ( what Brit hasn’t?), but they turned in a pretty good day’s work.  You do not get much more eloquent than that from working class mouths.   The working class is used to speaking with their fists.

    Internationalism is one of the core principles of the
    Left. It abhors the nation state, which it sees as a foundry of bigotry,
    racism and aggressive nationalism.

    The Left has always understood this: that if you manage to wreck a
    national culture and a national identity, you shatter the ties of
    history and nationhood forged over centuries.

    Although there used to be patriotic Leftists — and there still are
    one or two — many in the New Labour project in the Nineties and
    Noughties were, effectively, self-hating Britons.

    They tortured themselves with post-imperial guilt, wanted the country
    to lose its independence and be ruled by Brussels, and sought to have
    what a BBC executive called the ‘hideously white’ mainstream culture
    diluted by ‘diversity’.

    Don’t you find it weird when articles like this that highlight the critical problem and emphasize our dire plight DON’T give the names the officials who that are granting bail, or who signed the law and enforce it?  Even the Migrationwatch gent didn’t name names, or his comment was censored.

    WE MUST NAME NAMES. Watch what Color of Change does, and all the other race hustling scam artists and thugs.  They name names and apply pressure.  They win.  We complain and watch things get worse, and then we feel justified and complain again, but a little bit more righteously each time.

    We are playing the game with defective equipment against the best equipped, best trained players in the sport.Just try to imagine what Van Jones’ schedule for the month of June must look like, and compare that to Jared Taylor’s schedule.    We are so outgunned, we shouldn’t really consider ourselves in the fight.

    “I haven’t been in a good mood since the collapse of Massive Resistance in Virginia. Any White who has been in a good mood since then is a dangerous psychotic.”

  • British have become wimps. They are aging, shrinking, dying.

    You can run but you cannot hide from diversity.  Diversity is coming next door. 

  • england is doomed.
    Little “e” england…

    With all those pasty, unarmed sissies waiting for a paki to slit their throat and rape their daughter, it should be easy now for the brown imports.

    Bibi (seen below giving the finger to the American taxpayers), he be be worried. And all for no reason. According to the Gruaniad he warned Parliament that “illegal infiltrators flooding the country were threatening the security and identity of the Jewish state. If we don’t stop their entry, the problem that currently stands at 60,000 could grow to 600,000, and that threatens our existence as a Jewish and democratic state”How wrong can someone be? Does he not realise that the ‘New Israelis’ will add enrichment, vibrancy and colour, while applying their own unique skills and talents in the service of their new country? If he doesn’t believe me why doesn’t he ask Alan Shatter, ‘Israel’s close friend’ at the heart of the Irish Government?  Alan has opened the immigration spigot to such a degree that the masses of unemployed Irish youth heading the other way are getting knocked down in the stampede. And Alan’s first loyalty is to Ireland, he wants only what’s best for this country. That’s why the army of enrichers is flooding in.  I wonder could he be persuaded to give some to Bibi?  Nah, too loyal to Ireland.And Bibi, your friend and fellow Likud MP Danny Danon suffers from the same misapprehension as you.  He wants to ship off all the refugees to Australia!  He wants to forego all that enrichment, vibrancy and colour. He says – imagine this – “the refugees’ place is not among us, and the initiative to transfer them to Australia is the right and just solution. On the one hand, it treats the refugees and migrants in a humane way. On the other hand, it does not threaten Israel’s future and our goal to maintain a clear and solid Jewish majority”. Danon has asked Australian MP (and dual Israeli citizen) Michael Danby to propose this to the Australian Parliament. Danby“enthusiastically agreed”  Again, we can be absolutely sure that Danby’s first loyalty is to his country and constituents, so he wants all that enrichment for them.Bibi, I can give you a lot more support for my position. What aboutBarbara Spectre, or Anneta Kahane, or Jack Straw?  They’re all Jewish too, and all want to flood their respective countries (Sweden, Germany and Britain) with the kind of enrichment that you’re turning your nose up at.

    How the British have fallen. At least we still have Russia!

    • Indeed.  The only countries that have any semblance of pride and honor left are Russia, Ukraine, Serbia and to a lesser extent, Poland.
      Ironic how it was communism that actually acted as a strengthener and preservative for the white, Christian west.  At least that one idea backfired on our “good friends”.

    • A friend of mine who is a priest says that Britain is the only country that he goes to where he gets openly jeered and mocked for being in a priest’s garb.

  • Where will you go? All the West suffers the same ills. The US and EU cannot hold. They apply band-aid after band-aid to keep the economy alive, yet the entitlements keep growing. The US, EU, and Chinese economies are in a very fragile balance, when one goes, it will take the others with it. When the government can no longer pay its police and soldiers, what loyalty will they have to the government? How will the new immigrants respond to the end of their entitlements? The Soviet Union collapsed and so will these treacherous anti-white governments. We must have hope, we must stay strong. When our enemy is at its weakest we will strike and take back what is rightfully ours.
