Twenty-five illegal workers were caught in an Asian supermarket in Southall, west London on the 22 September, that’s got to be a record.
UKBA officers visited the Quality Foods Supermarket on South Road, Southall to check whether staff had the legal right to work in the UK.
Checks revealed a huge number of staff were working in breach of immigration law and officers arrested twenty-three Indians, one Pakistani and a Ghanaian, aged between 19 and 54. Three of those arrested were female.
Out of the 25 arrested fifteen were working in breach of their immigration conditions, six had entered the UK illegally and four had overstayed their visa.
The owner of the supermarket was given a penalty notice warning he could face fines of up to £10,000 for each illegal worker arrested unless he can prove that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out.
Oh come on does anyone really expect him to pay out £250,000 in fines. The owner deserves a prison sentence for facilitating illegal immigration as a deterrent to other employers who are damaging the infrastructure of the UK by employing illegal workers.
Four illegal immigrants have been caught by officers targeting illegal workers in Lampeter and Newtown, Wales
UKBA officers visited Ling Di Long, Bridge Street, Lampeter, on Wednesday 21 September and checked the immigration status of staff.
A man working as a waiter was found to have overstayed his visa, while a waitress and a male chef were both found to be failed asylum seekers who had remained in the UK illegally after their claims for protection were turned down. Members of the Lost Asylum Seeker Brigade I shouldn’t wonder.
All three were Chinese nationals and have been placed on immigration bail. How stupid is that decision they are free to disappear yet again until another UKBA raid brings them to the surface months or even years in the future.
Earlier the same day, officers went to Oceans Fish Restaurant, New Road, Newtown.
A 28-year-old Indian man attempted to ‘leg it’ from the business but was caught. Checks revealed he too had stayed in the UK illegally after his visa expired.
The man was arrested and is currently in immigration detention awaiting deportation.
