12,000: Size of the Army of Foreign Criminals Living in Britain Today

Jack Doyle, Daily Mail, December 9, 2014

The staggering scale of Britain’s foreign criminal population is exposed today.

There are more than 700 murderers and 500 rapists among nearly 12,000 foreign offenders in this country, figures show.

For the first time, the Home Office has published a detailed breakdown of the offences and nationality of every criminal from around the world, who is currently on its books having been convicted of offences in this country.

In total, nearly one in six has been found guilty of an offence categorised as ‘most serious’–including murder, rape, terrorism and sex offences against children.

Murderers and rapists alone make up more than one in ten of the total.

The nationality breakdown shows Britain hosts a ‘United Nations of Crime’, with offenders from 177 different countries. It shows there are more Jamaican criminals here than any other nationality–a total of 1,026–or around 2 per cent of the entire Jamaican population in the UK.

Second on the list is Nigeria, followed by Poland and Somalia. The top ten countries alone account for more than 5,500 criminals.

The figures were uncovered by Labour’s immigration spokesman David Hanson using a question tabled in Parliament.

He told the Mail: ‘Foreign criminals have no place in Britain and there is no excuse for ministers not deporting them as early as possible.

‘Yet under this Government fewer are being removed and it’s taking longer; Labour has clear plans for making it easier to deport foreign criminals but Theresa May still won’t get a grip and remove people who shouldn’t be here.’ But Tory MP Michael Ellis, a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee said: ‘The hypocrisy from Labour is nauseating. It was the previous Labour government’s ramshackle immigration arrangements that facilitated entry of many of these individuals in the first place.

‘And the Human Rights Act created an imbalance in favour of foreign criminals which we are having to correct.’

The full list, entitled the Foreign National Offender Caseload, includes all 11,719 convicted foreign criminals the Home Office is managing, whether they are in prison, in immigration detention or at large. It excludes those who have been given the right to remain permanently in this country under human rights laws.

Their numbers include 775 murderers, 587 rapists, 155 child rapists, and 15 convicted terrorists. Also in the category of most serious offences are 99 other killers convicted of manslaughter, and 228 paedophiles.

There are also 88 criminals found guilty of attempted murder, 1,022 of serious violent assaults, 497 burglars, and 43 arsonists. In total, 2,247 were convicted of the production, supply, or importing drugs. More than 8,000 offences are listed simply as ‘other’.

The breakdown shows that of the total, more than 1,100 are unlikely to face deportation because they were jailed for less than a year–the threshold for automatic deportation of criminals outside the EU. A total of 1,075 were handed indefinite or life terms and 2,831 five years or more.

Last night immigration and security minister James Brokenshire said: ‘Many of these cases are a legacy of the last government–which this Government is taking action to deal with. Last year, we removed more than 5,000 foreign criminals, the highest number since 2010/11.’

    I notice that blacks are in 4 of the top 5 most numerous criminals: Jamaica, Nigeria, Somalia, Zimbabwe! Why am I not surprised? How disgusting that people that were allowed to come to the UK, a formerly nearly crime free area, were given the chance at a better life, instead took advantage of their hosts!!! And when the people forced to accept them were branded as racist when they cried out against the criminal invasion!

    • David Ashton

      Cos you be prejadiss, nome sane.

  • superlloyd

    Importing criminals to sponge off the welfare teat and commit more crimes. Who says crime doesn’t pay at least for blacks and muslims?

  • David Ashton

    The “diversity” gets more “vibrant” every month.

    • Reynardine

      “Vibrancy” is a function that describes the number of times a white head bounces when struck by a black fist.

  • Mary

    I see the British government loves their foreign criminals just as much as our American government does.

    • Realist

      Oh. yes it is called CHEAP LABOR

  • LHathaway

    Judging from this, the only people who need to get out of the UK are white. Now more than ever, a foreign language is the key to a better future.

    • skara_brae

      Contrary to the stream of claptrap we are drip-fed on a daily basis the British people are not budging one inch. We are standing firm. Remember that purported Chinese curse “May you live in interesting times”?
      Well, judging by what I hear, feel and sense, times are about to get very interesting indeed.

      • See The Future

        Times can only change in England when the political elite, media and police decide that the policies of the past 40 years must be turned 180 degrees immediately.

      • Singingbird1

        The British people are going to take their Country back.Does anyone actually believe that this state of affairs will continue unchecked? I for one will die for England.

    • See The Future

      The study of problems and solutions is interesting.

      A small problem can be easily corrected with minimal pain by just a small change in direction.

      As the problem increases, the solutions become more difficult but not impossible.

      After a certain point the problem cannot be solved.

    These number reflect arrests and not criminal behavior. Criminal behavior is a lot more widespread and has a much more damaging effect on the civility of a society. When a mob rampages through a street but only 5 get arrested, it wasn’t just those 5 who ruined things.

  • KyraNelson

    “Human rights.” What a joke.

  • john maverick

    USA wins again , we have 100 times that many ! USA ! USA !

    • LeonNJ

      I did actually lol’d when I read this.

  • ThatWhiteGuy

    But I thought diversity brought growth, stability, and prosperity?

  • LeonNJ

    Look at the Poles being squeezed in the middle with the Nigerians and Somalis. Compared to Polish Americans, I have heard that many Poles in the UK are trouble makers for some reason.

    • shmo123

      As an American of Slavic descent I’ll admit to feeling uncomfortable seeing them on the list. However, by allowing 750,000 people into your country, you’re going to have a few bad apples. I suppose less than 1/10 of 1 percent isn’t as bad as the rest of the list, but I’d deport them in a heartbeat, with no chance to return.

      • Rhialto

        Note that the chart does not distinguish types of crime. How many in each category were guilty of ‘most serious’ crimes? I don’t know, but I’d bet on the darker immigrant groups pushing the Poles and Lithuanians to the bottom of that list.

        • Itooktheredpill

          They already are at the bottom of the list if you look at per capita crime rates. You cant compare 750,000 poles to 45,000 somalis and use total criminals. Only thing that really says anything is the percentage of the population that commits crime.

    • Sick of it

      The Poles/Lithuanians on the list more than likely belong to a certain tribe. I’d guess that most of the “Romanians” are gypsies.

      • Itooktheredpill

        If you mean jews than thats not true at all. The jewish % of polands population after WW2 is a fraction of a percent.

        • Sick of it

          Possibly true after they all moved to America.

          • Itooktheredpill

            There are officially 25,000 jews in Poland…

    • Itooktheredpill

      I interpreted that data in a completely different fashion. Poles despite being by far the largest group have the smallest per capita crime rate out of all the other immigrant groups. If anything its a positive thing because it shows a clear racial difference in crime rates. Whats the crime rate for indigenous white british, welsh, and irish? Would not be surprised if the polish rate was very similar to theirs.

  • IstvanIN

    Criminals have a right to a family life you know.

    • See The Future

      The worst criminals have been elected in a democratic process and continue to be re-elected.

      That fact is really the bottom line.

      And for the small percent of intelligent people they will suffer the same fate as those dimwits that are led by the corrupt media.

  • “Jamaica has the highest number of criminals in Britain, with 1,026”

    Interesting because of have heard that Jamaicans are the highest achieving Blacks in the U.S., but maybe that includes criminal achievements.

  • Triarius

    12,000? Maybe just in East London.

  • See The Future

    And you can extend that right up to the inbred royalty.

  • See The Future

    If the true number was 12,000 there would not be a problem. The media does a great job of perpetuating the myth that all is well in jolly old England.

    5 million is a much more accurate statistic and would demonstrate to the average true Brit how dire the situation is.

  • archer

    I’m surprised the percentages are not much higher, Poland seems to have the most aliens living there but only .09% of them are considered criminals, I’m curious how these numbers would breakdown in the good ole U.S.A.

  • Realist

    “12,000: Size of the army of foreign criminals living in Britain today, including 700 murderers and 500 rapists”
    This with the blessing of the stupid whites that live there.

  • crockadoodle6

    These numbers are low for several reasons:

    1. They just document the criminals that have been convicted. Many have records ‘purged’ for the obvious reasons. Also, many simply lie on their travel documents. In addition, how hard is it to bribe any clerk in Jamaica, Nigeria or any sub Saharan ‘country’ to change the content of a doc?

    2. This number does not represent the criminals who have not been caught, been caught but not charged and been caught but for whatever reason put back on the streets (see good ole USA).
    3. These are not the numbers of crimes. Each listed criminal probably has a life-time history of habitual crime and violence. Hundreds per perp.

    So the correct numbers are exponentially higher…probably 10-100 times higher. AND these are the males breeding indiscriminately leaving their corrupted, soiled, loser DNA in as many woman they can mount.

    If only some substance that destroys fertility could be mixed with tattoo ink……….

    When Nu Labour were in their Dictatorship in Britain, they actively encouraged the import of foreigners. It did not matter if these foreigners were criminals to Nu Labour just as long as they were foreigners. I will not blaspheme but what a disgusting mindset these horrible Lablour Traitors have. I hate Labour for the TRAITORS that they are. And I hate the people who vote for Labour.

    • The fancy name is “electing a new people.”

      All an inevitable symptom and consequence of democratic republicanism.

  • Paleoconn

    Man, those Poles are nothing but trouble!

    This year, Mohammed is the number one baby name in the land that won two world wars. When the Saxon learns to hate in a few years, the top name will be Enoch.

    • Itooktheredpill

      I dont know if you were being sarcastic or not but the Poles have the lowest percentage of criminals out of all those groups.

      • Paleoconn

        I was.

  • Cannot Tell

    My parents are Nigerian immigrants living in the U.S. It breaks my heart that Nigerians cause so much trouble in the UK.
