How the media demonised immigrants

HUMBAHASTIMES -- As public hysteria towards illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and foreign criminals grows, world governments rush through knee jerk legislations.

In 2005, the United Kingdom’s Immigration, Asylum, and Nationality Bill set the standards for cracking down on illegal immigration.

Advancements in technology for information sharing, stricter and more technologically advanced identity checks, and constant communication with overseas law enforcement officials enabled the UK to systematically strengthen their border patrol.

Additionally, the government decided to crack the whip on companies hiring illegal immigrants, including enacting stricter identity and visa checks, and instituting fines for any companies caught hiring illegal immigrants: up to £2,000 per illegal worker, as well as jail time and unlimited fines for those employers knowingly hiring illegal immigrants.
