Recommended Posts

So the UK Border Agency is to be no more, and the worse thing Theresa May is now taking control, theres a saying that comes to mind, out of the frying pan into the fire, Although I should not have thought that it will affect the staff or decisions taken at the embassies, lets see what further mess they can make.

New statement below, is this the same woman that cocked up the security at the Olympics and laughed on the Frost show when she admitted that she was happy with the new financial regulations, she has already gloated in Parliament how Migration is down by a third,

 

In short term this means it is going to get tougher mainly for migrant workers, if she is at the helm then family Migration may get harder, the woman is a witch and lets agree every Thai that gets a visa it clearly states "no recourse to public funds" are you telling me they have not worked out yet its the EU that is causing the problems, hmmmm, lets keep people out that cant claim benefits anyway but let everyone in that can, :Think1:

 

HOME OFFICE ORAL STATEMENT – 26 MARCH 2013


UK BORDER AGENCY
Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on the future of the UK Border Agency.
Since 2010 the Government has been getting to grips with the chaotic immigration system we inherited. We have introduced a limit on economic migration from outside the EU, cut out abuse of student visas and reformed family visas. As a result net migration is down by a third. We have also started to get to grips with the performance of the organisations that enforce our immigration laws. Through the Crime and Courts Bill we are setting up a National Crime Agency with a Border Policing Command. The Passport Service continues to operate to a high standard. And, since we split the Border Force from UKBA last year, 98 per cent of passengers go through passport control within target times and Border Force meets all of its passenger service targets.
But the performance of what remains of UKBA is still not good enough. The Agency struggles with the volume of its casework, which has led to historical backlogs running into the hundreds of thousands. The number of illegal immigrants removed does not keep up with the number of people who are here illegally. And while the visa operation is internationally competitive, it could and should get better still. The Home Affairs Select Committee has published many critical reports about UKBA’s performance. As I have said to the House before, the Agency has been a troubled organisation since it was formed in 2008, and its performance is not good enough.
In truth, the Agency was not set up to absorb the level of mass immigration that we saw under the last government. This meant that the Agency has never had the space to modernise its structures and systems and get on top of its workload.
I believe the Agency’s problems boil down to four main issues. First, the sheer size of the Agency means it has conflicting cultures, and all too often focuses on the crisis in hand at the expense of other important work. Second, its lack of transparency and accountability. Third, its inadequate IT systems. And fourth, the policy and legal framework within which it has to operate. I want to update the House on the ways in which I propose to address each of those difficulties.
In keeping with the changes we made last year to Border Force, the Government is splitting up the UK Border Agency. In its place will be an immigration and visa service and an immigration law enforcement organisation. By creating two entities instead of one, we will be able to create distinct cultures. First, a high-volume service that makes high-quality decisions about who comes here, with a
culture of customer satisfaction for businessmen and visitors who want to come here legally. And second, an organisation that has law enforcement at its heart and gets tough on those who break our immigration laws.
Two smaller entities will also mean greater transparency and accountability and that brings me to the second change I intend to make. UKBA was given agency status in order to keep its work at an arm’s length from ministers. That was wrong. It created a closed, secretive and defensive culture. So I can tell the House that the new entities will not have agency status and will sit in the Home Office, reporting to ministers.
In making these changes it is important that we do not simply create new silos. And that is why we are creating a strategic oversight board for all the constituent organisations in the immigration system – immigration policy, the Passport Service, Border Force and the two new entities we are creating – and that oversight board will be chaired by the Home Office Permanent Secretary. We will also work to make sure that each of the organisations in the immigration system shares services including IT.
Because the third of the Agency’s problems is its IT. UKBA’s IT systems are often incompatible and are not reliable enough. They require manual data entry instead of automated data collection, and they often involve paper files instead of modern electronic case management. So I have asked the Permanent Secretary and Home Office Board to produce a new plan, building on the work done by Rob Whiteman, UKBA’s chief executive, to modernise IT across the whole immigration system.
The final problem I raised is the policy and legal framework within which UKBA has operated. The Agency is often caught up in a vicious cycle of complex law and poor enforcement of its own policies, which makes it harder to remove people who are here illegally. That is why I intend to bring forward an Immigration Bill in the next session of Parliament that will address some of these problems.
Mr Speaker, the changes I have announced today are in keeping with the successes of the Government’s reforms so far. We are reducing net migration and we are improving the performance of the organisations that enforce our laws.
But UKBA has been a troubled organisation for so many years. It has poor IT systems, and it operates within a complicated legal framework that often works against it. All those things mean it will take many years to clear the backlogs and fix the system – but I believe the changes I have announced today will put us in a much stronger position to do so.
I commend this statement to the House.

I hope the severely psychologically disturbed people who are masquerading as teachers leave Thailand quickly.

I partially agree with you TSA can be annoying, But look at the influx of muslim extremists that openly protest in the UK. I dont think that would fly in the US . Thanks to our border patrol and TSA. I live in a border town and I have to give these agents props for getting the job done. I think every country should have border security .

I can some what agree that some border patrol try to do an ok job, I spent 2011 and most of 2012 on assignment in the Douglas AZ area one of largest crossing points, the Obama even came by to see it. But drive 10-15 miles to either side of Douglas and its open boarders. They arent founded enough to close it so they hope check points on I-10 in AZ, NM, and TX will catch them on top of harassing every US citizen driving along. (Drove that 14 hour drive 2 times a month). Now there is nothing I can justify about the TSA. I've the great misfortune of working with them. Fire the lot and the whole group of people that run them replace them with mall cops.

 

The protest issue is not something that BP or TSA have anything to do with, that a direct result of poverty level. Here in the US our "poor" have more income than most other countries working class. So the need to protest to get a new iPhone, cable television, high speed Internet, a car, cash for beer and smokes. Our welfare nipple is full and easily drunk from if your the correct voting block. Control the masses control the power, so it's very important to our government that any special voting block is kept fat dumb and happy. So they keep voting for you, its F'd up but it works.

DHS pre vets incoming visitors. They actually have a pretty effective database. This is not to say that some slip through the cracks. Most are visa overstays . I dont know what the entry requirements for immigrants are, but ive heard several brits complain that muslim extremists are taking over, and ive seen tons of videos on youtube. I guess I need to do more research on uk poverty. I agree with you on the welfare...
