    Immigration officers have been told not to deport foreign students who overstay their visas in most cases.

    A memo sent to the Border and Immigration Agency's regional directors tells them not to enforce such cases unless they are deemed to be priorities.

    The order, from director of enforcement Jonathan Lindley, followed a case in which BIA chief executive Lin Homer personally intervened to halt a deportation.

    Ms Homer has insisted that student cases that involve fraud or corruption will continue to result in the removal of the individual involved.

    Just when you thought the government could not be any less competent.

  2. Is this not pertaining to students who are late in renewing their visa?

    The BBC seems to think so

  3. I heard it on the Radio this morning and ws shocked by what I heard. i just can not see the logic, Student Visa's are the worst abused. When are the next elections?
  4. Why are they sending them in late? They do not have any excuse. It's alegal document for crying out loud.
  5. This Government knows it's in it's last death throws and seems determined to allow as many illegals to stay as possible, the destruction of Great Britain as it once was is well on track, it's what Labour wants.

    Get your tax returns in late by one day - £100, no excuses.

    What is so difficult for students . . . . oh, getting out of bed.

    Sod them - if they need a visa, and it runs over, and let's not forget, these are not European students, get rid, forthwith.

    When they apply for the visa, the terms and conditions are made perfectly clear.
  7. Have You ever talked or worked with students. They are incapable of working to a timetable.
  8. Really VB? I mean, honestly; that's what you think? So they're all sitting there thinking of ways to screw the country?

    More like they have no clue and the country is falling down around them.
  9. No, they aren't from the EU - they are the ones who pay international fees. Quite a large income for the colleges/unis

    So that excuses them from following the rules then?
  11. No, but HMG has a choice, relax the rules for students (that were only changed in September, remember) or the educational establishments lose out on millions.

  13. if they are actually paying huge fees etc and its cause there cack students sending the goon squad round and paying for a forced deportation is possibly a bit excessive :x
    better off kicking out some failed assylum seekers :twisted:
  14. Doesn't the ruling pertain to students and not ex students who have finished their training?

    It doesn't matter.

    Immigration officers have been told not to deport foreign students who overstay their visas, unless they have broken other laws, a leaked memo reveals.

    This government has lost control.
