Foreign Criminals Rewarded With 3k Handouts

Recommended Posts

As fast as Gordon brings them in, he pays them off to leave. Is this Man Mad, or is he indeed on a mission to destroy the UK and hand it over to Brussels, I think last nights antics with regard to the Lisbon Treaty made up most peoples minds.

Foreign prisoners are being offered £3,000 to leave Britain, the Government has admitted.

The standard financial reintegration package is £800, but the higher offer has been introduced as the jail population hits record levels.

The "enhanced" incentive is available until the end of next month.

Lin Homer, chief executive of the Border and Immigration Agency, said: "We strongly believe foreign lawbreakers should be sent home at the earliest opportunity.

"Every day that we can get these individuals out of the country early saves our taxpayers over £100 a night.

"That's why we want to use the Facilitated Returns Scheme to get as many foreign criminals out of the UK as possible by extending last year's scheme until April."

Between October last year and January this year, the Home Office offered an enhanced package of £1,500 for reintegration assistance.

According to the Home Office, more than 4,200 foreign prisoners were deported last year - 80% more than the previous year.

It said the Facilitated Returns Scheme helped achieve that figure.

A Home Office spokesman said: "This clearly shows that the scheme works and enables the quick return of foreign criminals, thereby saving the taxpayer money."

So surely this is a good thing for the tax payer? Reduced the tax burden of the prison poulation, and aslo expells a criminal from the country so makes future crime from that individual less likely.

Why should we pay them anything, pack them in a herc and send them all back like sheep in a lorry. This is a bloody disgrace....why should we pay..
