Eckington: A restaurant in Eckington would have to face a gigantic fine of up to £10,000 for employing an undocumented worker during a raid conducted by the officials of the UK Border Agency. Reports say that the process was part of an ongoing attempt to weed out illegal immigrants, applicants indulged in fake marriages for the purpose of immigration, bogus students and institutions and organized immigration scams on a national level.
Acting on the information received by sources, the officials marked a raid on Bilals Restaurant located on Market Street, cross-checking the genuineness of the workers and knowing their legal immigration status.
A worker of Bangladeshi origin, aged 27, was found employed as a waiter and was caught red-handed having no legal documents to work in the country and having entered the nation in an undocumented manner.
He was later released on immigration bail but has to mark his presence at the office of the UK Border Agency on a regular basis meanwhile the investigation is going on to deport him back to his homeland.
The restaurant faced an on-the-spot penalty note for employing an undocumented employee and is liable to pay a huge fine in return. It has now become mandatory for the restaurant to prove that it went for the right amount of pre-employment checks on its employees.
To avoid such situations, it is always recommend that an applicant must go for legal immigration process. Visit www.abhinav.com for more info.
OTTAWA: MP Ruby Dhalla continued speaking on the number of sham marriages and again raised her concern on the issue of fake marriages which happen for the purpose of immigration. The issue was taken into Parliament and she spoke on behalf of her constituents and those people from Canada who are the victims of the same.
In her recent actions, she conceded Order Paper questions and addressed them to the Immigration and Citizenship Department, enquiring about the actions to curb down sham marriages and what actions are taken in this direction.
She went on to say that the facet of sham marriages and knots tied for the purpose of gaining immigration status is increasing day by day. Thousands and thousands of nationals from Canada are being used as victims by their spouse only to gain entry in the country.
A majority of these victims include young woman who are lured by people, provided assurance that this marriage would give them all the happiness in the world, only to fool them for a sham marriage! They end up being just another medium to enter Canada.
Dr. Dhalla said that there should be certain measures to curb down the usage of innocent Canadians so that they are not used in the marriages of convenience. Also, people who report against these marriages or are victims to these are never informed back on the current status
But the response from the department was too general, and NOT based on actual facts or statistics. Dr. Dhalla stated that there are flaws in the immigration system of the nation itself.
Entering into a nation through fake marriage is a crime. This crime is still being committed despite the issue being addressed three years back. This is as per the official documents.
An investigation was ordered by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in February 2007. This investigation looked into the high rate of potential fraud cases which were catering to possibility of convenience marriages. This was extensively happening in the Punjab state of India. This is as per the internal documents brought out by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. The information was brought out through the Access to Information Act.
Complaints were being reported to CIC against people who were marrying foreigners and had paid to them so that they could enter the nation. This arrangement was till they entered the country and leave the marriage once they were safe in the nation. Of these, some of the spouses were found to have left the marriage immediately as they had landed in the country.
The investigation revealed connections to human smuggling, sex trade, embezzlement as well as narcotics trafficking to name a few. The investigation report had clearly stated for a crackdown on these activities and the people involved. However, three years have passed but nothing seems to have changed.
According to Jason Kenney, the Immigration Minister, the doors of the nation would be open to legitimate spouses and partners. At the same time, it would be ensured that the laws are not broken and the local people are not exploited.
Thousands of women are trafficked to other countries with the sole motto of securing visas for people whom they called their so-called husband!!! They not only enter the world of fake immigration but go on to join hands with crime and sometimes brothel world. This is the things of extreme limits. Let us talk about the initial stage first – Sham marriage! And why are they done for?
Also known as marriage of convenience, these sham marriages or the fake marriages and meant for deceiving the immigration officials and blindfolding them to get immigration rights in one’s favor! After the motto is fulfilled, the couple often divorce, parting ways from each other.
Some couples get involve in sham marriages to create a secured envelop around them so that no one blames them or suspect them for homosexuality. This is an altogether angle to the facet of sham marriage! Here we are talking about marriage done for the purpose of getting visa.
The girls get sham marriage offers from men who want to get visas on the basis of their marital status. Their cost of arrival, stay and departure are normally financed by the person who is intending to get visa. The girls are promised every luxury and fulfillment of wishes at every step, but hardly has it happened! Sometimes the girls are pushed into the profession of prostitution and sexually abused at every step. After the fulfillment of the purpose, these women are thrown like trashes!
Best advice is to hire an immigration consultant and go with legal immigration processes.
