Immigration crackdown will target landlords and taxi drivers

Immigration crackdown will target landlords and taxi drivers

Amber Rudd's immigration crackdown will target taxi drivers and landlords first
Regulations for landlords and taxi drivers will come first, followed by banks, as part of a drive to make it harder for people who have no right to be in Britain to gain a foothold here.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd also vowed to stop businesses hiring foreign workers when they could recruit or train Britons, and to stop immigrants using low-quality college courses as a bridge to jobs in the UK.

And she promised to make it easier to deport foreign criminals, including those who repeatedly commit “so-called minor crimes” in Britain, who could now be banned from returning here for between five and 10 years.

Communities that have suffered most pressure from recent mass immigration will, meanwhile, be helped with a new £140million fund to ease strains on public services and housing.

Ms Rudd used her keynote speech to the conference to recommit the Government to the goal of cutting net migration – the numbers of people arriving minus those leaving – to below 100,000 a year from its current 333,000.

Declining to put a timescale on the pledge, she warned: “This will not happen overnight.”

But she vowed: “This Government will not waver in its commitment to put the interests of the British people first.”

Low-migration campaigners welcomed her statement, but there was a backlash from business leaders.

Ms Rudd said she “absolutely accepted” the Brexit vote, although she campaigned to stay in the European Union, and she acknowledged that voters had sent a “clear message".

There can be no question that recent levels of immigration motivated a large part of the vote”.

The question is... why are illegal immigrants and/or foreign criminals already being allowed to get cab licences..?


Why aren't these checks already happening?

Why are people who are on 'no-fly' lists still able to buy guns?

Simple...the lists don't cross paths.

This looks like basic checks are not even being done...

Where is this country, town or whatever OQ????

It's all over...US, UK, France, Belgium.  The so-called careful screening and monitoring is a joke.  We hear of this guy who was looked at, then discarded as harmless.  Next, he goes and blows up a downtown theater or night club and everyone stands around shrugging.  

That someone who is on the no-fly list can obtain a gun like he was buying a candy bar, is ludicrous.

Basic checks on whether they have a uk driving licence, national insurance number, passport, immigration status, bank account, address etc should be standard first lot of checks... then a CRB (criminal record check) should be mandatory as they are working in a position of trust with the public.


How can councils be issuing cab licences to illegal immigrants and criminals If they are doing these basic checks...!?


They obviously aren't doing any of the checks... so why not...!?


Heads should roll for this negligence!!!

I agree. We got into a cab and the driver didn't even know where he was going, we had to guide him. He spoke broken English and the cab wasn't clean. Last time we called that firm.
