The UK Border Agency (UKBA) have got another group of victims in their sights. Not content with locking up innocent people in inhumane conditions and then forcefully deporting them outside the EEA to face torture and worse, now Europeans are also featuring on their hit list.
In West Sussex, reports are emerging that increasing numbers Eastern Europeans are being reported to the police if they are without a job or home. In scenes reminiscent of the brutality common in Europe's migration hotspots, the cops have even destroyed the shelters of destitute migrants in Bognor Regis.
The UKBA are 'allowed' to forcibly remove people they claim are not 'self-sufficient', and with the dire economic situation more and more are temporarily home- or job-less. The scheme had previously been piloted in 2010 in Peterborough, Reading, London and Oxford.
Inspector Nick Bowman, of Sussex Police's Arun District, said to our local rag the Argus, “We have seen an increase in homelessness with people from Eastern Europe. We say to them, go and be homeless in your own country, because it is a drain on resources.” Nice.
