This is hardly the most reassuring news.
The UK Border Agency is still failing in its “basic functions” in spite of efforts to overhaul it, MPs have said. The home affairs committee said UKBA had provided “inconsistent” information about immigration and asylum cases dating back to 2006 and this backlog would take four more years to clear. It also said it was “deeply concerned” about the number of foreign prisoners living in the UK awaiting deportation.
Government has a central and important function to keep us safe by protecting our borders. That is KEEPS failing in the essential area is a disgrace.
