And saying so causes the open borders ultra-internationalists to go berserk.

Only one in every 67 reports of illegal immigration result in a person being booted out of the country, a damning report by MPs reveals today.
Incredibly, in 94 out of every 100 cases, immigration officials are not even bothering to properly follow-up on tip offs from concerned members of the public.
This is despite David Cameron personally urging people to ‘report suspected illegal immigrants’ a to new Border Agency database so they could be deported.
Police and Border Agency officials evict Rumanian immigrants from a derelict site in London. Despite raids such as this a report has found that just one in every 67 reports of illegal immigration result in a person being deported
MPs say that, as a result of the inaction by officials, people will lose confidence and could soon stop bothering to ring the authorities to report illegal working or visa over-stayers.
The revelations are contained in yet another critical report on the UK’s border controls by Westminster’s home affairs select committee.
