Governments for both Conservative and Labour have for many
years been warning us about the dangers of mass immigration. They have
created a moral panic where honest citizens have been misled to believe
that people from other countries using our health service and drawing
state benefits are the main reason for poor services and high taxation.
If you are born in the UK you may never have to come into contact with
the British immigration system but if you choose to marry someone from
another country or one of your parents' is not British then you may have
some idea of how much misery the immigration system creates.
Steve Cohen's controversial new book, Deportation
is Freedom!, takes
its name from the brilliantly insane slogans by which power is maintained
in George Orwell's great modern classic Ninety Eighty
Four. But Deportation
is Freedom! is not simply a slogan - it is a reality for many people
caught up in today's immigration system, facing a choice between deportation
and indefinate detention and/or destitution.
As an immigration lawyer with over 25 years experience,
Steve Cohen sets out to argue the case that all immigration controls
should be abolished. He sees this as one of the last few remaining areas
of human discourse that is, intellectually, forbidden territory.
Steve Cohen argues that current immigration controls are an intractable
nightmare for immigrants, migrants and refugees and are so inherently
racist, unjust and irrational that they require the creative dystopian
ideas contained within Nineteen Eighty Four to adequately describe them.
Deportation is Freedom! also scrutinizes the latest developments
in UK immigration legislation and compares and contrasts the UK experience
with that of other countries.
If you want to know the truth about immigration, Deportation
is Freedom! is the best place to start and is available to buy now.
