Here in the U.K., the government is due to announce new proposals to tackle illegal immigration. New figures are expected to show that migration to Britain has reached record levels. Daniel Sandford has the details. “The immigration bill, which should be published before Christmas, will include a criminal offence in England and Wales of working illegally.We have now learned that the maximum penalty will be 6 months in prison and an unlimited fine, as well as the possibility of wages being seized as proceeds of crime. Business discovered using illegal workers will no longer be able to claim they didn't know a particular employee was not allowed to work. They'll have to show that they carried out proper checks before taking them on.”

英国政府将宣布应对非法移民的新提案。预计新的数字将显示前往英国的移民人数将达到历史纪录。丹尼尔带来详细报道。“新移民法将在圣诞前公布,内容包括在英格兰和威尔士地区非法工作属犯罪行为。我们现在了解到犯罪人员的最高刑罚是处入狱6个月,及无限制罚款,工资所得也有可能被视为犯罪获利而被没收。雇用非法劳工的企业,一旦被发现将不能再找借口辩称不知道不能雇用某特定人群。企业方面在雇用员工前必须进行适当审核并予以证明。
