Migrationwatch media comment

November 22, 2005

Commenting on the publication today of the latest asylum statistics, Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migrationwatch said:
'Asylum applications are fairly steady but there has been little progress on removals, up by only 120 a month.  We are still adding over 1000 a quarter to the 1/4 million failed asylum seekers already here.   The Home office will struggle to meet the PMs target by the end of the year.  Even achieving that would make no impression on the huge backlog.'
