Pauper Alien Immigration.

Pauper Alien Immigration. The nation has revolted against the influx of pauper and criminal aliens into England. For years pressure has been brought to bear on Governments to induce them to place some restriction on this free import system, for England's hospitality to the vagabond- age of Europe has extended over some hundreds of years. But it becomes necessary to curtail that indiscriminate hospitality when strangers come over and eat the children's bread. The Aliens Bill will put a check on the immigration into this country of the criminal, the undesirable, the destitute, and the decadent surplus of Europe. They have been pouring into England in a steady stream they occupy the time of our Courts of Justice, fill our gaols, and retard improvement in the in- dustrial quarters of our great cities. They moreover pay us the high compliment of BORROWING OUR NAMES, with the result that the census figures show a less number of aliens than are known to have entered the country for the purpose of remaining here. Sir Chas. Dilke's amend- ment on the second reading, which sought to safeguard the principle of asylum for the victims of persecution," was defeated by a majority of 124. The following extracts from the Blue Book, dealing with the evidence of the Royal Commission, show the necessity for legislation on the lines of the Bill introduced by the Home Secretary. "Within six years, 107 streets in the Borough of Stepney alone have passed wholly into foreign occupation." During the last ten years, 52,000 British people have left Stepney, driven out by the alien." A Jewish witness said:—"They (the aliens) SOLD THEIR LIVES, I and do now, at the rate of sixteen hours a day, for a crust of black bread and a piece of garlic, and a corner filled with filthy straw to lie upon." An alien prisoner, tried at the Thames Police Court for picking a pocket, had only been a short time in England, and there were found on him some letters from persons in prison in Russia, in which they declared their inten- tion of joining him as soon as they were released.
