One of the points of the British Democrats’s political manifesto is to kick out all the illegal immigrants living in the UK.
Expelling illegal immigrants is not impossible and an example of that comes from an unlikely place.
In the last few days, Pakistan has begun arresting and deporting Afghan refugees who missed the government’s deadline for them to leave, a government minister has announced. At least 200,000 people have already returned to Afghanistan voluntarily, said Pakistan’s acting interior minister, Sarfraz Bugti.
The crackdown on unregistered foreigners is part of Pakistan’s new anti-immigrant policy, whichm affects some two million Afghans thought to be in Pakistan without documentation.
Pakistan’s Interior Minister claimed there will be no compromise against illegal refugees as authorities have the data on who is staying illegally in Pakistan. Government officials are going door to door, and using GPS or RFID technology to create a virtual geographic boundary, enabling software to trigger a response when a mobile device enters or leaves a particular area. Police will detain and deport the illegal refugees; dozens have been arrested across the country so far, including in the
Afghans will be put in buses, trucks or whatever is available to transport them to the border and authorities will be tracking them to ensure they do not return.
Unsurprisingly, Pakistan’s policy of forcibly returning refugees has drawn widespread criticism from UN agencies, rights groups and the Taliban administration in Afghanistan. The Taliban has urged its neighbour to give undocumented Afghans more time but so far Pakistani authorities are sticking to their deportation plan.
If Pakistan can expel hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants then so can the British government; all it needs is political will and some backbone. Unfortunately both Conservative and Labour will never take the steps necessary to tackle the immigration invasion into the UK. The British Democrats however, will take action, by withdrawing from the UN 1951 Refugee Convention, the ECHR and the Global Compact for Migration. Join us!
