Maybe zero credibility according to "opinion" but they don't fabricate news...

They publish court records a lot.

So how credible is Fox News?

This is seriously appalling. Surely there must be some process for deporting people that takes longer than that so everything can be sorted out in a civil manner, no? I'm not for total open borders and there are good arguments on both sides, as mentioned immigrants overall are better, but this is just unfair. What's worse is that they put you on the next flight with the change you have in your pocket and that's it. It's cases like these that only hurt arguments from people who are anti-immigration not on bigoted basis.

I don't have nothing to do with UK but when you read how the system allows abusers to use public money to prolong their stay - in the name of fairness. ... I don't know what to say ...

Example : a mother with quintiplets supposedly has run up a bill of over 500k UKP but can't be asked to leave or can she be forced to pay - in the name of "rights .. "

Yes, I read Daily Wail a lot but the stories there aren't made up. Even though they may be sensationalized ...

PS, a very close relative of mine is a strong advocate of rights for migrants and refugees - never had the chance to ask her what she thinks of situations where folks abuse the system wantonly...


Sometimes I wish that the UK is more like Singapore, and selectively chooses who to grant citizenships, PRs, rights to remain etc. But no, political correctness does not allow that. You cannot check dental records. You cannot discriminate against one particular nationality (even though they overly abuse the system)

In the case of this woman, I have no idea why her subsequent appeals after 1999 to remain were rejected if they had bothered to consider her case carefully. Her husband was working when the appeals were submitted, and she has two sons (I presume they hold British citizenships) living in the UK. She did not seem to have the intention to relocate her entire extended family over to the UK (assuming this as she actually went back to Singapore to take care of her parents)

Now they are considering to grant all EU citizens currently in the UK citizenship?!?!?! Granted many have worked there for a long time, have roots in the country but not all. What happens to good ole employment passes I wonder?
