Call for amnesty for 500,000 illegal immigrants

#1
The Roman Catholic leader in England & Wales, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor is calling for an amnesty of illegal immigrants that would allow half a million to stay in the country. More details can be found in today's Online Daily Mail.

I fear his Eminence is as lacking in judgement regarding an amnesty for illegal immigrants as his predecessors were in protecting paedophile priests. :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

The US tried an amnesty for illegals a few years back. It resulted in the numbers of illegals doubling. It doesnt solve the problem, just invites more problems.

And they all have jobs to go to.

In the mail today they claim Britain is threatened by 'an Army of the Unemployable'

Not surprised if they allow more and more people in.
Mail today

If they're illegal, then they shouldn't be here. As charity begins at home and the Roman Catholic Church wants to help, let them help by moving them to the home of the Catholic Church :- The Vatican City, where they can be a drain on the Church's resources.

Is that not the point. If they allow them in, the church will get funding from the government to help them support them.
Just as the Muslim religion is given £10s of millions to educate British schools on Islam.

Religion is the biggest racket going, a bit like Al Capone, America's best known gangster, looking for any cheap trick to make money.

Perhaps we should look at what he actually said:

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the Archbishop of Westminster, said although in "no way" did he want to encourage illegal immigration, he believed "more attention" should be paid to the fair treatment of undocumented migrants in the country.

"We know that there are up to half a million immigrants who are undocumented and therefore, it is my view, and I think the view of many, many others, that some way should be found for these undocumented people who work in our country, who contribute to our economy, that their rights should be respected," he told BBC Radio 4 Today programme.
Seems reasonable enough.

The problem is what are the rights of someone who breaks the law, knows they are breaking the law and continues to break the law?

They should have the right to be rounded up and deported.

Taking his Eminence's words at their face value, this seems an entirely reasonable plea to bring overdue, correct status and legal position to hordes whom this government has neglectfully allow to enter the UK by irregular channels.

It will, if effective, be to the good of the immigrants, the country and us all.

But I somehow can't see this govt. doing it effectively.

If they are here illegally, how the f**k do they contribute to our economy, they pay no tax or no national insurance due to no documentation, but get free medical aid for themselves and schooling for their kids. Some contribution.

It helps our economy as people are being recruited and jobs are being created to chase them down.

If we didn't have the Illegals, those people jobs created to chase the Illegals down, would be on state benefit.

It's Called Labour economics.

Steven has summed it up well. The section of his Eminence's statement I've highlighted, demonstrates his total lack of judgement to which I referred in my original posting. What he's said is not unlike the recent case of a burglar who sued the property holder under Health & Safety law because he'd slipped on the draining board and injured himself whilst gaining entry through the kitchen window he'd smashed. Total madness. To have Bliar and his cohorts in charge is like putting the inmates in charge of the psychiatric hospital.

Give 'em the chance to come forward.... if they aren't worthy, then they can be sent home. If they are true asylum seekers or useful we will keep them. And forgive and forget their passport faux pas.

The rest can go... including all the criminals we seem to attract.

If this goes through I presume every other criminal will be demanding their rights , I got away with it for a couple of years therefore I should have an amnesty like the illegal immigrants

Could we make the reporting centre at Heathrow, just so if things go a little pear-shaped, it's not too far to escort them to a waiting plane with a single ticket. They have no rights to be in this country, so therefore they have no rights whether they should be deported. If they weren't here, they wouldn't be getting deported.

Probably 100,000 potential recruits for HM Forces (Service guarantees citizenship) get them trained up, send them out ot the sandpit to fight for their new country and when( if ) they return let them have papers to live here as worthwhile citizens. The choices would be Service or deportation.
The 100,000 was not including the families.

Personally, even as a confirmed right winger, i have no problem with people who enter our country in order to work, contribute to the treasury, obey our laws, and respect our values.

I think we could have an exchange scheme whereby we send them back our lazy, benefit dependant, criminal chav scum in exchange for their willing workers.

that way our indigenous wasters will get a look at countries where "i knows my rights innit, give me a council house, legal aid, soft justice system and benefits for popping out loads of kids who'll be just like me" won't cut it.
