Indian students pour into Britain.

Read all about it! 19,950 Indian “Students” flood into Britain in just two months

IlieJeremy Oppenheim, who runs the points-based system at the UK Border Agency, has said that the number of students coming into the UK this year was “roughly the same as last year”.

But figures subsequently obtained by the BBC under the Freedom of Information Act show there has been a massive increase in the number of student visas granted in India and Bangladesh.

Between June and August 2008, before the new system for students came into force, the British High Commissions in Mumbai, New Delhi and Dhaka issued 6,771 student visas.

During the same period this year, under the new points-based immigration system which the then Home Secretary Jacqui Smith promised would “raise the bar” and lead to “fewer migrants coming to the UK from outside the EU”, the three offices issued 19,950 visas.

Although the number of student visa applications tripled, those rejected only rose from 3,997 to 6,261.

A Heathrow based whistleblower told the Donal MacIntyre programme that many so-called students could not speak English and knew nothing about the courses they claimed to be studying.

Where are those 20,000 students going to study you may ask? According to the government it has cracked down on bogus colleges, and that the number of institutions able to bring students into the UK from outside the European Union has been halved since the introduction of the new points-based immigration system.

So while our soldiers die in Afghanistan to keep our streets free of terrorists, UK Border agency allow 20,000 ‘students’, many unchecked, into the UK from the Indian subcontinent.
