Lets have some consistency in our border rules!

UKVII am really delighted to read this article from the Guardian that at long last the Police are going to end some of their formal processes that for far too long have connected then to the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) which is the renamed UK Border Agency (UKBA). On the rare occasions in the past I have seen teams from a local police force and UKBA arriving in locations to take away people who are perceived to be illegal immigrants; it has made me feel very concerned as the Police are supposed to protect all of us in our communities. Clearly people who have moved into the UK from other places may well have broken the law but law breaking happens a great deal (check out the many Parliamentarians who have done so) and it is very disturbing that the Government invites in other people from outside the UK who are prepared to invest large sums of money inside our nation. There should be consistency in the way in which immigrants are treated. If UKVI can remove people working in restaurants and nail bars, then they should also remove people who live in the centre of London in Million pound properties whose backgrounds are very similar to the others who end up being sent abroad against their will!
