ASYLUM FOR THE ENEMY! By Adrian Byrne A Taliban soldier who fought against British and American troops in Afghanistan was today granted asylum in Britain. The soldier argued that he has been forced to leave his home country through fear of persecution from the new Western backed Government in Kabul. Britain has helped rid Afghanistan of The Taliban, the terrorist regime that deprived its people of basic human rights, and now we are granting asylum to one of these terrorists, who fled when we helped liberate the country. This is one of many cases that have made a mockery of British immigration laws and the judiciary as a whole. Now in a move, both underhand and ineffective, Home Secretary David Blunkett has commissioned building contractors to purchase country mansions and hotels to house asylum seekers. These properties are not protected or secure and will not prevent asylum seekers from simply melting into the population. The Home Office admits mislaying thousands of immigrants and it is becoming apparent that Britain has lost control of her borders. A generous welfare system is one of the many reasons that Britain is seen to be a “golden land” for immigrants. Of course many asylum seekers enter Britain with very moving and genuine reasons for doing so, a large percentage, however, have been described as bogus refugees or “economic immigrants”. Every year around 100,000 immigrants arrive in this country; at least 60,000 of these are here illegally. Less than one quarter of these illegal immigrants are sent back, the rest simply “disappear”. A majority of asylum seekers are not terrorists, but with the threat of terrorism so acute it is imperative for national security that we know the whereabouts of all those entering our borders. Asylum has turned into mass immigration without the proper means of information. Radical measures are needed. One root of this problem lies with the British and European judiciary. Both the European Convention on Human Rights and the 1951 UN Convention have been extended indiscriminately and there is no longer room for logical human morality. The Government is not solving the immigration problem facing modern Britain. Immigrants are crossing our borders without genuine or legal reasons and are not being reprimanded for doing so. Immigration has always been a contentious issue, granting asylum to those who have sought in the past to harm our way of life, can only intensify national security fears and anger to tax payers.
