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.
Immigration Minister of Canada Jason Kenney has recently stated that he would be coming out with regulations that would punish the human smugglers and order them to go through jail terms. The rules would be applicable for both national as well as overseas people.
The minister is involved in discussions from his counterparts from various nations like France, Italy, Greece and Germany as to how to act strict on the removal of undocumented, illegal and fake refugee claimants. Other countries include Britain and Belgium. These countries are some of the highly prospective countries when it comes to people immigration from their home country to another. These are also popular amongst people seeking refugee status from various Asian and African territories.
As far as the data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is concerned, Canada stands at number three position of the most popular places for refugees. First two places are grabbed by the U.S. and France.
If reports are to be believed, the minister is scheduled to have discussions with various officials from India, Philippines and China on how to deal with immigration scams and people who get involved in fake practices while moving to other countries. Stricter rules are on the cards for boat people as well.
Processes are still going on that would determine whether people coming from boat are legitimate refugees or not.
Goa tourism minister Francisco ‘Mickky’ Pacheco, in a recent TOI (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/goa/New-regulations-will-bring-in-genuine-tourists-Mickky/articleshow/5442458.cms) report said that the new visa regulations would help in bringing in more genuine visitors to Goa in the coming years. The amendments would further keep a strict check on the “illegal immigration,” which is one of the root causes that weakens the overall economy of a country in a major way.
He said that stringent regulations would prevent the applicants with tourist visa to take any employment. Also, 90 days are ample for the tourists to enjoy their time in Goa.
The minister further commented on the people who get long leaves from their jobs and said that these are the ones who survive on “Employment Doles!” He asked: Do these people actually spend this much amount? Talking about the retires who spend months here, Mickky said that they too survive on doles!
The new amendments would ensure that international migrants stay away from any kind of violation of their status by keeping the facet of ‘Illegal Immigration’ miles away!
It should be noted that Immigration scams are happening all over the world. It is not just the government of Goa that is taking stringent measures, but government authorities from all over the world are getting exceptionally particular about the immigrants entering their countries. Taking assistance from an Immigration veteran not only ensures that all procedures are carried out in a legal manner but see to it that all your documents are presented to the High Commission in the right manner.
