When the criminals run the jail
In recent years I have read of numerous cases of dishonest caseworkers at Lunar House, all Africans and South Asians who have offered to short-circuit the process for money or, in the case of at least one chap, a Zimbabwean I think, in return for sexual favours.
Some of these caseworkers have turned out, for God's sake, to be illegal immigrants themselves!
Oh I have no doubt that there are decent, honest first- and second-generation immigrants working in immigration. And I have no doubt, as the Righteous would rush to point out, that there are White crooks in the system with indigenous pedigrees that go all the way back to Alfred the Cakeburner himself. That doesn't alter the fact that this kind of criminality seems to arise predominantly among non-indigenous caseworkers.
So why are we exposing ourselves to this obvious danger when actual experience clearly suggests the bleedin' obvious: that divided loyalties and community pressures among immigrant staff are a genuine problem? Should we not be ensuring that the people employed in decision-making roles in the immigration process are all people with deep roots in this country? If that means overwhelmingly White British people then so be it.
'actual experience clearly suggests the bleedin' obvious: that divided loyalties and community pressures among immigrant staff are a genuine problem.'
Unfortunately Edwin, actual experience counts for nothing, given the Ostrich like stance adopted by our leaders on this subject.
