How Other Nations Deal with Illegal Immigrants: France Expels Illegal Gypsies as Saudi Arabia Deports Somalis
French president Nicolas Sarkozy has ordered the expulsion of illegal Gypsies and “itinerant immigrants” while Saudi Arabia has stepped up the deportation of in excess of 1,000 Somalis every month.
The strict action against these international lawbreakers contrasts strongly with the attitude of successive British governments which have made it easier for the world’s scroungers to settle here.
This week Mr Sarkozy ordered the expulsion of all Romanian and Bulgarian Gypsies who had committed “public order” offenses and said that illegal camps would be taken down.
The French interior minister Brice Hortefeux was quoted on French radio as saying that over the next three months, he would use decrees to dismantle about 300 illegal immigrant camps, of which 200 belong to Gypsies.
“These camps are the source of illicit trafficking, children exploited for begging, prostitution or delinquency,” Mr Hortefeux said.
Those in France illegally or who have committed public-order offenses will be sent “almost immediately” back to their countries of origin without the possibility of returning, he added.
Digital fingerprinting technology would be employed to ensure that the deported persons did not enter France once again.
Meanwhile, the UN refugee agency has reported that the Saudi Arabian government has stepped up its deportation of Somali “asylum seekers” to 1,000 per month.
The office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said Somalis had been flown back to Mogadishu for the past year at that rate after illegally entering Saudi Arabia.
Currently there are in excess of 450,000 asylum seekers still awaiting processing in Britain and the Home Office has previously announced it will take them years to process the tidal wave of applications.
Other government figures have shown that 92 percent of asylum seekers never leave Britain under any circumstances, even if their applications are not approved.
