Why are judges so reluctant to deport criminal trash from this country?
A rioter and looter originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been told by immigration judges that he can continue to stay in Britain despite his criminal activities – because to deport him would constitute a breach of his human rights!
Derrick Kinsasi, an “enricher” from the DRC, was convicted in October 2011 of burglary and theft and sentenced to 18 months in a young offenders’ institution – all at taxpayers expense.
The 21-year-old’s taxpayer-funded lawyers successfully argued that to send him back to Africa would breach his “right to family life” even though he is unmarried and has no children.
In his learned judgment, Judge Nathan Goldstein, is reported as saying: “I find that removing him to the DRC has echoes of ‘exile’ rather than exclusion and it is unlikely to be proportionate.”
In his defence Kinsasi explained that he and his brother entered Britain in 2002, when he was 10-years-old – presumably as refugees. Later he, his mother and siblings were granted indefinite leave to remain in Britain.
So how did he thank this country?
Well, he was convicted at Wood Green Crown Court of looting a branch of Comet, the consumer electronics store, on the second day of widespread disturbances in London during August 2011.
The Home Secretary (correctly) decided that although Kinsasi had some family ties in Britain that they did not constitute family life for the purposes of Article 8 under the Human Rights Act.
Kinsasi appealed (using our tax money?) to the lower immigration tribunal, which upheld the Home Secretary’s decision to deport him.
After losing in the lower court, Kinsasi launched another apparently taxpayer-funded legal challenge in the Upper Tribunal where Goldstein overturned the previous ruling and allowed the appeal.
Goldstein is reported as saying: “The consequence of his removal to the DRC would amount to a splitting of the family unit.”
We, however, would argue that this criminal has bitten the hand that feeds him once too often and deserves no such consideration.
We say scrap this EU imposed “human rights” nonsense and deport the bum!
