New laws created to make Britain a tougher place to live in for illegal immigrants
5th August 2015
The government is set to announce new laws that are expected to make Britain a tougher place to live in for illegal immigrants.
Under the new plans, illegal immigrants to Britain could now face a sudden eviction from rental properties without a court order following the recent Calais migrant crisis.
This new law, which is due to be a part of a new immigration bill, means that people in housing and planning legal jobs will need to read up on the new proposals that are set to be implemented. Landlords will now be able to evict illegal immigrants without a court order, although landlords that fail to check the immigration status of tenants could also now be fined or imprisoned for up to five years.
Speaking in the Guardian, Greg Clark, the communities secretary, said, “We are determined to crack down on rogue landlords who make money out of illegal immigration – exploiting vulnerable people and undermining our immigration system.
“In future, landlords will be required to ensure that the people they rent their properties to are legally entitled to be in the country.”
