Banks are ordered to freeze accounts of illegal migrants after being given secret list...

...of those 'hiding in Britain' in a bid to force them out of the country

Banks are being handed the names of suspected illegal immigrants by the Home Office and could be told to close down their accounts.

Banks and building societies have started immigration checks on 70 million current accounts under a Government scheme, and could shut accounts down in the hope of pushing those unlawfully staying in the UK out of the country.

Newly appointed Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said the UK has a transparent stance on immigration: 'This Government is clear: we expect them to leave voluntarily,' she said in The Telegraph.

She added that those remaining in the UK illegally were diminishing wages, adding strain to public services and permitting employers to 'undercut' honest businesses.

2. When I saw that headline I thought that was happening in America. If it did happen in America I

would object.

4. Why?

If your precious illegals voted for Republicans, you would be at the front of the line DEMANDING they be jailed and deported.

Why do you think algore tried to get military ballots thrown out during the Florida recount?

It should happen in America.

The sooner the better.

7. Illegals don't vote for Democrats.

They don't vote for Republicans either. They don't vote for anybody.

6. Good idea.

I'm a little concerned about the 'suspected' part though. They should be pretty sure before taking such an action.

8. SUSPECTED Illegal Immigrants

That bothers me.

Do the SUSPECTS have any recourse? If they are in the country illegally then any money they earned is proceeds from a crime, sieze it and boot their ass out.
