Following on from my previous post about benefits freeloaders, my other big gripe with the government is laws concerning asylum seekers.
Aside from the fact that I believe we are way too “Immigrant Friendly” in this country there is one particular law which I find unbelievable. As it currently stands, if an asylum seeker commits a crime in this country we will NOT deport them back to their own country if they are to face violence or are in fear of their lives through persecution.
Now, I understand why we wouldn’t send back a normal failed asylum seeker back to their country of origin if they were to face persecution but a convicted criminal, surely not. I think they the act of committing a crime and being found guilty of that crime should waiver any protection that our laws provide them from deportation.
This may seem a little harsh but I firmly believe that it would not only cut the level of crime, but also encourage asylum seekers to respect our laws and society and live by our rules.
