The United Kingdom (UK) Border Agency recently interrogated and arrested seven Filipinas who were residing in London. The arrests followed operations on immigration related frauds going on all over in the country. In addition to that, their deportation is on the cards now. The arrests happened during various raids at different locations of Willesden in northwest London.
All seven women were taken into custody, along with their foreign nationals. According to an official release, these operations are an integral part of the major track down process that is going in all over the country to track down the aspect of fraud immigration, marriages that happen for the sake of immigration, organized immigration frauds and bogus educational institutions which are spreading their wings every where.
However, it has not been clear till now as to what violation has been attempted by these seven women in concern.
