Immigration minister Mark Harper has said that a new scheme in which illegal immigrants can voluntarily come forward, would help to prevent unlawful working and reduce the burden on public services caused by illegal migration. Mr Harper said:
We are making it more difficult for people to live and work in the UK illegally.
But there is an alternative to being led away in handcuffs. Help and advice can be provided to those who cooperate and return home voluntarily.
