Middle class Asian parents who used their estate agency business as a cover to bring migrants in to Britain to live illegally are both jailed

A middle class Asian couple who used their estate agency business as a cover for an immigration racket which allowed migrants to live illegally in Britain while collecting benefits have been jailed.

Father of four Shohidul Islam, 41, and his 39-year old wife Anwara were arrested after a Bangladeshi migrant was discovered in a secret hideout in their loft, having outstayed a Government visa for two years.

Immigration officers raided the Islams’ extended semi detached property in Burnley, Lancashire and were forced to crawl through a floor shaft before they found Bangladeshi national Shafik Miah hiding under a pile of suitcases.

    And yet David Cameron and Tony Blair etc etc stay out of gaol. Go figure.

    I’ve said this in mixed company before, if you bring in people from third world, communist and ex-communist countries, where corruption, fraud, cronyism, even out right theft, is endemic to the culture, where it’s just a matter of business, what in the world do you expect?

    These people are not like like us. They don’t want to be a like us. And they see our notions of fairness as weakness and just something to be exploited. I’ve seen this over and over again in industry.

    • We can thank Citizenship & Immigration Canada!

        Yes, but who gave them their marching orders?

          Actually in Canada Citizenship and Immigration pretty much run themselves and ignore the party in power.

    take them out and summarily execute them in the street

    I still remember when Kamal Jean Gopie, a top person at the Immigration and Refugee Board many years ago made a public comment I saw on tv, claiming that people of colour can never be racists because they aren’t in positions of power.

    That of course implies through the negative, that only white people can be racist because white people have all the power.

    At that point I would have fired her, but I think this was when the Lieberals were still in power federally.
