Illegal immigrants worked at border agency in UK

Seems everyone has border security problems, not just the US of A.

From timesonline
ILLEGAL immigrants have worked as guards for a government body responsible for defending Britain’s borders.

Seven security personnel were found to be carrying forged documents, according to disclosures under the Freedom of Information Act.

One has since been arrested, five have resigned and the other is on maternity leave, while her immigration status is investigated. They were working for HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), which had responsibilities for border security until April.

The news that security issues have been entrusted to illegal immigrants will embarrass the government, which has repeatedly pledged to cut down on illegal working by foreign nationals.

The security staff, employed by a contractor that guarded buildings used by employees of the UK border agency and HMRC, were identified in December last year as carrying documents that were believed to be suspect.



I just love how the rest of the world thinks they have a right to look down their noses at us when it comes to our border security. Not that it's the best.
