BBC Today Gets Undocumented Migrant Arrested

There was an outrageous piece on the BBC Radio 4's Today programme the other day exposing the 'scandal' of the Home Office not arresting and deporting undocumented workers. As part of the report, BBC reporter John Minel entraped a worker into talking about his immigration status, and then betrayed him to the Home Office, leading to the man's arrest and imprisonment.

Last June, News of the World reporter Mazher Mahmood and colleagues entrapped 66 undocumented workers and 'delivered' them to Colnbrook Immigration Removal Center.
