The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “UK CRACKDOWN on immigrants branded racist” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2013/08/20138123290348855.html). “crackdown” is the latest/yet another example of the “force and pain technique” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“British authorities have rounded up scores of “IMMIGRANT OFFENDERS” in a nationwide operation condemned as racist, launched days after the government began telling illegal migrants to “GO HOME or FACE ARREST”. This is clearly a THREAT.
“The Home Office, which has responsibility for immigration, was widely criticized on Wednesday (July 31, 2013) for the spot-checks at stations and on streets in areas including London, Durham, Manchester, Wales and Somerset leading to the arrest of 139 people”.
“Witnesses who saw spot-checks in London claimed that immigration officers stopped ONLY NON-WHITES and BECAME AGGRESSIVE when challenged“. “became aggressive” is another/the latest example of the “force and pain technique” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“Phil O’Shea told the Kilburn Times: “They appeared to be stopping and questioning every NON–WHITE person, many of whom were clearly ORDINARY Kensal Green GOING TO WORK. When I queried what was going on, I was THREATENED WITH ARREST FOR OBSTRUCTION and was told to ‘ crack on‘”. Once again, “threatened” was EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE.
“The opposition Labour MP Barry Gardiner has written to the home secretary, Theresa May, demanding an investigation into a campaign which he said violated “FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS”, the Independent newspaper reported”. So “fundamental freedoms” are also under threat in BRITAIN? “We do not YET live in a society where the police or any other officers of the law are entitled to detain people without reasonable justification and demand their papers. The actions of your department would however appear to be HASTENING US IN THAT DIRECTION”. The only countries where “police or any other officers of the law are entitled to detain without reasonable justification and demand their papers” are UNDEMOCRATIC countries such as SYRIA, EGYPT, NORTH KOREA and CHINA.
“The Home Office said the spot checks were designed to send a message to employers who exploited “ILLEGAL labor and to people who are in the UK ILLEGALLY“. Unfortunately “the spot checks” have targeted some people that they WERE NOT “designed to” target.
Finally, Immigration Minister Mark Harper finished off: “We are sending a clear message to employers who choose to use illegal labor. We will find you and YOU WILL PAY A HEAVY PENALTY. Illegal working undercuts legitimate businesses and is often linked to exploitative behaviour such as tax evasion and harmful working conditions. We will not allow the growth of a shadow economy for illegal migrants“. We have to wonder if THE WRONG PEOPLE have (“paid) a heavy penalty”.
To conclude, let’s refer to the sub-title: “Immigration officials accused of TARGETING non-whites only in campaign of spot-checks to find illegal workers”. This sounds like JAN BREWER or RUSSELL PEARCE talking about illegal immigrants in ARIZONA even though as Brewer said: “I do not know what an illegal immigrant looks like” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2VSGEWzEW0). Again, we SHOULD NOT be “targeting” ANYONE in the 21st century. THIS IS DISGRACEFUL/VERY DISTURBING/UNSETTLING.
