Ninety illegals caught on Olympic site.

Posted: December 6, 2009 in British jobs for British workers

IlieOfficers from the UK Border Agency, who are based permanently at the site in Stratford, east London, made 93 arrests between April and late November, 85 of which involved suspected immigration offences.

A total of 41 people were arrested after using fake passports or other false documents, 23 people have already been removed from the UK.

Of those arrested on suspicion of immigration offences, 32 were from India, 12 from Nigeria and seven from the Ukraine. The rest included four from both Brazil and Kosovo, three from Moldova, and two each from Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Albania. The remaining 17 were described as ”others”. Which translated means UK Border Agency haven’t a clue who they are or where they come from, isn’t UK on terrorist alert?

A further eight people who were entitled to work in the UK were arrested for using false documents to obtain work. Three of these were British, including one journalist who was seeking to expose lax security at the site. He proved that then, job done!

In May, workers held a demonstration outside the site to call for them to be employed directly rather than through agencies. The protest also pressed the case for jobs including electricians and steel erectors to be offered to workers in the local community. But as we know, last year it emerged that 20,000 migrant workers had registered for jobs in the main 2012 borough of Newham!

British jobs for British workers? Don’t make me laugh!
