    So far as I know these are opinions put forwarded by thinktank that how problems could be resolved to regularise illegal immigrants to stay in the UK. Please read the contents of article.
    Thinktank eyes illegal immigrant amnesty

    Report says British citizenship should be purchased by illegal immigrants Feedback
    Printer friendly version Britain's illegal immigrant problem will only be solved if the government allows non-citizens to purchase their legalised status, a thinktank believes.

    CentreForum says a £5,000 fee, to be paid in five annual instalments, should be considered to help solve the problem of Britain's illegal immigrants.

    It believes already scarce resources need to be targeted at those who pose a "genuine security threat" and that earned amnesty is a viable solution for those who deserve to stay.

    Report co-author Will Somerville said security, social cohesion and prosperity would all improve if the move was pushed through.

    "Deporting all Britain's illegal immigrants is impossible. Any rational approach to the problem must involve some form of regularisation," he said.

    "The best way to do this is through an earned amnesty."

    There are an estimated half a million illegal immigrants in Britain at present and the report argues it is impractically expensive to rigorously pursue all of them.

    Instead a one-off three-tier process is proposed for implementation, beginning with background checks for all those putting themselves forward.

    They would have to pay a non-refundable £5,000 to cover local government expenditure and fund additional investment in integration services.

    "The fee of £5,000 may be perceived as high. It is not, however, intended as a barrier to participation," the report states.

    "For regularisation to be politically palatable, it must be self-financing in the immediate term."

    Once this process is complete applications for permanent resident would be made, with criteria including stable formal employment, the payment of taxes and a basic language test.

    "A radical rethink of how best to deal with the estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants in the UK is long overdue," the report concludes.

    "The significant national security benefits that a well designed regularisation policy brings with it could provide the catalyst for the political realignment that will be required if such a policy forms part of a more nuanced approach to migration management."

      This is reply from Minister for Immigration: “This proposal is truly preposterous. We will never reward illegal immigrants with an amnesty, never mind an amnesty for sale. I think people here illegally should go home.”

        Illegal immigrants pay-to-stay idea

        Jul 21 2008

        Britain's estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants should be offered the chance to turn legitimate in exchange for a £5,000 fee, it is suggested.

        Liberal think-tank Center Forum said anyone here illegally for more than three months should be allowed to begin an "enrollment period" for a £200 charge, followed by five annual installments of about £1,000.

        At the end of the process, they could be granted permanent residence in the UK if they fulfilled a series of criteria, such as being able to prove they were paying taxes, holding a stable job and able to speak basic English.

        The think-tank claimed the proposed system would make it easier for the Government to target illegals who posed a genuine security threat, and would also improve community relations.

        Co-author Will Somerville said: "Deporting all Britain's illegal immigrants is simply impossible. Any rational approach to the problem must involve some form of regularization. The policy we set out would increase security, prosperity and social cohesion."

        Any applicants who did not meet criteria after five years would be expected to return to their home country voluntarily within six months, and would be entitled to a £2,500 refund on their fees.

        Those who failed to go would be deported and lose all £5,000, the think-tank suggested. The fees would meet the cost of operating the scheme, it added.

        "A radical rethink of how best to deal with the estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants in the UK is long overdue," the report by Mr Somerville and Demetrios Papademetriou said.

        Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migration watch, which campaigns against mass immigration, said: "This is a lunatic proposal. Nothing could be more calculated to encourage still more illegal immigration."

        Minister for Borders and Immigration Liam Byrne said: "This proposal is truly preposterous. We will never reward illegal immigrants with an amnesty, never mind an amnesty for sale. I think people here illegally should go home."
