    Is it a good idea or bad?

    Boris Johnson raised the idea when he was Mayor back in 2009

    Those people that have been here many years and have built their life, career and families in this country should be allowed to stay and get an indefinite leave to remain.

    One week they're trying to deport Commonwealth citizens who are here legally, the next Notch tells us they're offering to let illegal immigrants stay.

    Can anyone make sense of tory policy?

    Or is Boris trying to carve out a niche for himself in his next leadership bid?

    "Hello Illegal immigrant, congratulations on evading the law for so long and not paying any taxes into the UK.
    Here is a passport for you, you can now be a proper british citizen and claim benefits or work hard and pay taxes."

    NO! Illegal immigrants should not be rewarded for breaking our laws.

    No, BJ first raised it in 2009 and again in 2016.

    If the government finally introduce proper controls to restrict illegal immigration, an amnesty of existing illegal immigrants seems a good idea.

    In practice, how would you suggest that could work in a so-called 'democratic' country?

    Because in order to work out who is 'legal' and who is 'illegal' there would have to be a form of National ID card/database, and a legal requirement to carry your 'proof' at all times and produce it on demand at multiple places and by many quasi officials.

    (plenty of countries have such a system and it hasn't stopped the 'problem')

    And I'm not sure Brexshiteers will be happy with hearing 'papieren bitte' - because they're 'british' of course ;)

    Simple, declare an amnesty and then when they show up arrest them and thrown them in a cramped cell where they are given no food or water until deportation. If the host country doesn't want them back, shoot them or put them in a forced labour camp.

    Criminality of any kind should not be rewarded. If people are here illegally they are thieves, they're taking things they have no right to have.

    If I ever got any power I'd have you arrested for crimes against the British public. I'd have you thrown in a standing cell for 20 years with no windows with other neo-marxists like John and noseal. Fortunately for you I'll never get any power :)

    One thing's for sure though I'll never pander to you animals. If you want to take this country further into hell you're going with it :)

    Amnesty? No, feck 'em. The reason they're illegals is because they're undesirables who have little to offer. Last people we need filling up housing, schools, hospitals and especially prisons. Be more like the Aussies. All illegals taken to some barren island. Ireland would do.

    Brexshiteers currently have an apparent monopoly on taking other people in this country to 'hell' with them ;)

    Johnson just playing politics.

    I would try a combination of the carrot approach and stick but not be focused on meeting targets.

    Making it harder for everyone else to live their lives so we can apprehend illegal immigrants is defeatist.

    Entry , Exit checks, better border security and having people not ideological driven to sort this out.

    I wouldn't demonise these people, just send them home after collecting their biometric data.

    Animals? Well done you dolt.

    That level of hatred helps no one, the least yourself. It's disgusting.
