More than £600,000 (749,250 USD) of taxpayers’ money in the UK is being spent every week so lawyers can give free legal advice to asylum seekers — to help them stay in Britain. A significant portion of those asylum seekers are, of course, Muslim migrants.
Meantime, asylum seekers are getting away with disgusting assaults and crimes, and it isn’t just the British taxpayers who are paying for them: it was reported that a Muslim migrant with four wives and 23 children in Germany claimed $389,000 a year in benefits.
“More than £600,000 of taxpayers’ money is being spent every week so lawyers can give free legal advice to asylum seekers, figures show”, by Matt Dathan, UK Mail, December 15, 2016:
More than £600,000 of taxpayers’ money is being spent every week so lawyers can give free legal advice to asylum seekers – up almost nine per cent in a year.
A total 38,005 cases were approved for free legal advice over the last financial year, often in cases where the applicant is seeking to fight a decision where their asylum claim has already been rejected.
The cases, which cost the taxpayer an average of almost £900 each, have increased since 2013 as an increasing number of migrants fight for asylum status.
An astonishing £8.2million was spent on legal advice in a total of almost 10,000 cases between April and June this year.
The cost of those cases is 22 per cent higher than the corresponding figure two years earlier.
These cash payouts go to lawyers who are paid to help immigrants prepare their official asylum claim cases.
Solicitors can also be paid under the scheme to make an application for an asylum seeker to be released from custody if they are being held in a detention centre while the process is going on.
Lawyers can also be called on to represent asylum seekers at a tribunal hearing if they appeal an initial decision not to allow them to stay in the country….
