Grant amnesty to illegals in UK

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Though I am not an advocate of illegal immigration, I firmly believe in granting amnesty to illegal immigrants, particularly at this time when the United Kingdom is preparing to leave the European Union.

Deporting an estimated 500,000 people is not only mission impossible, it is costly and may take many years to achieve. Legitimising these people will enhance the tax collector’s purse, fill vacant jobs, and will help to reduce immigration caseload within the courts.
