Priti Patel issues urgent warning about foreign criminals on UK streets– HUGE deportations | Politics | News

The Government said it “will not rest” until “dangerous foreign criminals and immigration offenders” are “removed”. This, it said, would help to make UK streets more safe.

Home Office statistics today suggested 1,741 foreign national offenders (FNO) have been removed from the UK so far this year including 487 Albanians.

Among those removed are people convicted of rape, sexual offences, indecent assault of a minor, death by dangerous driving, trafficking, robbery, burglary, violence and more.

They held 606 convictions between them.

The Government highlighted that one Albanian individual removed had been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child and to meet a child following grooming.

“They must be swiftly removed so we can make our streets safer.

“The British public rightly expect us to crack down hard on those abusing the system which is why our new Nationality and Borders Act will help end the cycle of last-minute claims and appeals that can delay removals.”

This comes after more than a decade of promises to cut immigration by Conservative party Governments.

Earlier this year, Boris Johnson’s administration was roundly criticised over its Rwanda plan, both by those in favour of mass immigration, who called it unfair, and by those who oppose mass immigration, who said it did not go far enough.

Both Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are now working to appear more hardline on migration than the other to win votes in the ongoing Tory leadership contest.

Last month, 243 FNOs were removed from the country on both charter and scheduled flights, the Home Office said.
