Deportation rate doubles for failed asylum seekers

THE deportation rate for failed asylum seekers almost doubled in the past year, new figures show.

This resulted in a total of 236 deportations to non-EU countries in 2009, compared with 129 in the previous year.

Figures published officially today also show that an additional 202 failed asylum seekers, who would otherwise have been removed from the State, opted for help in returning home voluntarily.

And another 243 asylum applicants were transferred to other European states after being caught "asylum shopping", where they seek status as a refugee in two or more countries.

In 2008 the British deported over 13,000 failed asylum seekers , what did we manage just a few hundred . It has nothing to do with cost but everything to do with lazy ness
