Skip to comments.'Bounty hunters' hired to track down illegal immigrants (UK)

More than 170,000 immigrants refused leave to stay in Britain are to be tracked down by private-sector bounty hunters.
The support services firm Capita will earn up to £40million if it finds all of the migrants identified by the UK Border Agency who may be living in the country illegally.
But it was claimed by MPs that the company will be laughing all the way to the bank as its four-year contract does not specify how many people it has to remove.
Rob Whiteman, chief executive of UKBA, told the Home Affairs Select Committee: The contract is on payment by results, where they will make contact with potential overstayers from our records.
The potential value of the contract, if they performed very well over a four-year period, would be around £40 million.
He went on: Capita will be paid for the number of people who they make contact with and leave.
If nobody leaves, because they make contact with them, nobody will get paid.
The existence of the group of potential overstayers known as the Migrant Refusal Pool was first disclosed by the immigration watchdog in July.

hahahaa. They’ll just appeal the EU Council of Human Rights. You want them out? Leave the EU, round them up, and strap them to a raft.
Perhaps we could borrow a few more dollars from the Chinese to finance our own bounty hunt for illegals?
We need that here, $50 for an ear....
