Nine illegal immigrants have been caught during a series of raids.
UKBA officers went to Spa Nails, River Street, Truro, at about 16:30 on 13 September.
After the documents of staff were checked, a 26-year-old Vietnamese man was arrested after it was found he had entered the UK illegally.
At 19:00, officers carried out simultaneous raids on Spice Cottage, Commercial Street, Camborne, and Café Spice, Green Lane, Redruth.
At Spice Cottage, two Bangladeshi men were arrested – one member of staff for entering the UK illegally and the other for staying in the country after his visa expired.
At Café Spice, a Bangladeshi man was found working illegally in the kitchen.
He was placed on immigration bail and must report to a local police station unless he decides to ‘Scapa Flow’ (go) to join the Lost Asylum Seekers of the UK.
During a search of accommodation above the restaurant, a Bangladeshi man was arrested after it was found he was in the UK illegally.
All four men arrested were taken to Newquay and Camborne police stations before being transferred to immigration detention to await deportation, yeah right.
The three businesses will supposedly face civil penalties of up to £10,000 for each illegal member of staff they employed, but does anyone ever pay or do the owners shut down the business and get a relative to re-open under a different name. It’s about time these businesses were shut down until the fine is paid.
Four immigration offenders were caught in a raid targeting illegal workers on a construction site in Rochdale on 15 September 2011.
Acting on intelligence, I still think people giving information that proves correct should be rewarded financially, officers visited the building site on Smith Street, Rochdale at 11:00 and questioned staff to ensure they had the right to work in the UK.
The Indian men aged between 29 and 42 were arrested for immigration offences including illegal working and breach of visa conditions.
A Nigerian rapist escaped deportation yesterday after European judges ruled he had a right to a ‘private life’ in Britain.
Akindoyin Akinshipe, 24, was due to be sent home after losing appeal after appeal in the British courts over his jailing for an attack on a girl of 13.
But the European Court of Human Rights said this would breach his right to a ‘private and family life’.
Now why doesn’t the government have the ‘bottle’ (bottle and glass, arse) to escort this rapist onto the Eurostar and keep a check at ports and airports to make sure he doesn’t return.
