British Home secretary set to order 'Italian-style' crackdown on immigrants
Tens†of thousands of illegal immigrants are set to be†booted out†of Britain as the Home Secretary does an Italian Job on them.
Jacqui Smith is looking at sensational plans to deport ANY illegal who police simply BELIEVE to be a threat to public safety.
She is keen to copy a crackdown in Italy where laws have been changed to bust rampaging criminal gangs of Romanians.*
*They mean gypsies, not ethnic Romanians
Italian Premier Romano Prodi used emergency powers to order that any of them even suspected of a crime is shown the door. There is NO TRIAL or any right to the kind of appeals used by illegals to cling on in the UK.††
Mr Prodi was warned by the EU he was breaking directives on freedom of movementóbut he stood his ground.
And last week the European Commission caved in and backed the Italian crackdown, as long as every deportation case was considered individually.
