60,000 Asylum Seekers 'Lost Without Trace'

At least 60,000 asylum seekers will be lost without trace as the UK Border Agency struggles to clear its backlog of claims, say MPs.

They will be left in limbo as their claims are consigned to a growing pile of applications unlikely ever to be resolved, the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee says.

The agency, UKBA, has a backlog of up to 450,000 unresolved asylum cases. Some date back more than a decade.

Here we go again with Asylum seekers and their rights or wrongs...

Why is our Government so soft on Asylum Seekers?

Why do we have to keep taking these in here?

This Country is over-crowded already yet our Border Country arent doing anything to help matters.... they should just refuse entry at the Borders!!

'Lost without trace' is a concerning way to describe it. If there is a paper backlog then file it away for a few years until they decide to apply for residency or citizenship. At least there is a record they have spent some time in the country. If it is all digital would not take up much room either. Paper does not go into much detail, did they just drag them out to sea and feed them to the sharks? Maybe sold them to some aliens for a new ray gun? Did they even kick them out of the country or are they still there, just undocumented? This has left me lost without a clue.


Maybe the government should consider outsourcing if there are management and operational issues.

This sounds so much like an illegal immigration issue that so many have hated on Americans for speaking out loud about.

in places like the UK we have aging populations. Young people are needed to come and do the work. Otherwise it would be impossible to support the aged popultion. This problem is set to increase in coming years...
