ROMANIAN IMMIGRATION IS CRIMINAL!
OF all foreigners arrested for serious criminal offences in the UK Romanians make up the second worst group – yet we’re still about to open our doors to tens of thousands MORE of them.
In the past five years, a staggering 27,725 citizens of the Eastern European country have been nicked – in London ALONE!
They include ten arrests for MURDER, 142 for RAPE and 666 for “other” sex offences.
The number is second only to the Polish, with 34,905 of them detained in London since 2008. Over 80 of those arrests were for murder.
Some 50,000 people from Romania and neighbouring Bulgaria are expected to flood into Britain every year once immigration curbs expire on New Year’s Eve.
After January 1, 2014, citizens of both countries will be allowed to travel freely to Britain to seek work.
But they will also have full access to the NHS, schools and the benefits system – and the think tank MigrationWatch is warning of the strain the influx of immigrants will put on Britain’s already-stretched public services.
Chairman Sir Andrew Green, a former diplomat, said: “It is a matter of real concern that there should be such a substantial degree of criminality among those Romanians who have already come to Britain despite the treaty limitations on their right to work.”
The Government has so far refused to say how many people are predicted to head here from eastern Europe next year.
But when Labour was in power it famously predicted that only “up to” 13,000 Polish people would travel here when they joined the European Union in 2004 – only for more than HALF A MILLION to pile in.
Labour got it so disastrously wrong that Polish is now the second most spoken language in the UK.
Earlier this week the Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta claimed his countrymen would more likely head for Latin countries like Spain, Italy and France.
But Migration Watch have pointed out that even after taking into account the cost of living here, if a Romanian was to work for the minimum wage he’d still be getting FIVE times what he earns at home. On top of that, allowances like child benefit are four times the amount paid back in Bucharest.
Romania is known to be one of the most corrupt of all countries in Europe and crime runs rife.
Scotland Yard is so concerned about Balkan criminal gangs that it has set up Operation Nexus specifically to deal with it.
It has even approached the EU to bid for funds to establish a unit of overseas police officers to improve its capability, with Poland and Romania already signed up to the idea.
The figures released by the Met followed a freedom of information request for details on the number of foreign nationals arrested since 2008 for murder, rape, robbery, violence and sexual assaults.
The top ten countries of origin for foreign suspects are Poland, Romania, Lithuania, Nigeria, India, Jamaica, Eire, Somalia, Portugal and Pakistan.
Met Chief Sir Bernard HoganHowe visited Bucharest before Christmas for talks on increased co-operation in sharing intelligence and forensic science data.
ON THEIR WAY: Hordes of Romanians
may soon flood the UK
