The latest blunder from our border farce. Last November it was reported they ‘lost’ 124,000 asylum seekers due to innate incompetence.

Just wait till those ConDem cuts kick in.

The Sun: Up to 50,000 foreign students went missing because of a major UK Border Agency blunder, it is revealed today.
The National Audit Office said the immigrants were given student visas in 2009 and 2010, but may not have attended college.
An NAO report said the UKBA switched to a new system "before key controls were in place".
It claimed staff "did not check" if those granted visas became students. NAO chief Amyas Morse said: "The flaws were predictable and avoidable."
Nearly 300,000 foreign students and their families are given visas every year.
Labour introduced supposedly harsher restrictions in 2009, with foreign students having to be sponsored by colleges and banned from moving between institutions.
But between February 2010 and October 2011, 62,000 foreign students were still reported for not attending classes.
An NAO contractor took just a week to track down around 200 "lost" people.
The NAO also claimed the Border Agency did "little" to kick out students whose requests for extensions are refused. Just 2,900 have been deported since 2009.
