Its quite sad that the likes of hate preachers, foreign scroungers and citizens that want to bring this country down continue to reside here in the UK, yet these 2 guys who welcomed every customer with a smile and kept that shop immaculate are treated in such a way.. If only all foreign workers made such a positive impression as they did.

If you people above knew the shop people then u wudnt be so racist and horrible towards them! they work unlike some 7 days a week 14 hours a day, PAY TAX and respect every single person that walks into that shop no matter what race they are!! i think you need to have a bit more respect for the 2 people who have been deported especially as you dont no them to judge! These 2 are not like any other foreigners they work, not sponge off the government like many foreigners do!!!

But they overstayed their visa and broke the law as did their employers if they didn't carry out the necessary checks. Are you trying to say it is perfectly alright to do that? I would be very interested to know how you know they paid tax. Just how did they do that and how did their employers pay their national insurance contribution? You need a national insurance number to do that, do how I they get one and overstay their visa?

We have rules for people who want to come and stay in this country and if foreign workers apply and pass they are welcome to stay.If you are staying illegally then as it states it is illegal.If i rob a bank but work hard at it and put long hours in doing it is that OK.

The book should be thrown at the employer as he is just as guilty.

At which point did I mention tax?? I haven't insinuated that staying in the UK with an expired visa is ok, nor did I comment on their employer's lack of diligence?
Jeez where are you getting this from?
