Criminal checks on immigrants?
Monday 12th November 2012, 3:00PM GMT.
IMMIGRANTS could be subjected to criminal records checks and banned from using some States services under proposals being considered by the Chief Minister’s department.
A review is being carried out into how Jersey’s immigration controls – which are due to change to a new system in February – can be tightened up.
Although no firm proposals have been put together, the head of the Population Office, Paul Bradbury, says a review is currently considering what more can be done.
