BRITAIN'S immigration system has resulted in "lost souls" still living in Huddersfield, says the town's MP.
Barry Sheerman, in a House of Commons debate on the Queen's Speech, said they should have been sent back to where they came years ago.
He told the House of Commons: "People want a fair system."
He said he was delighted he was able to live in a fair and balanced society in which all the communities and faiths worked together and got on extremely well.
But he added: "I have heard of no-one in my constituency who does not want an effective, speedy and fair immigration system.
"We do not have such a system.
"There are lost souls living in my constituency who cannot work or sustain life.
"They should have been given a decision and sent back whence they came a long time ago, rather than being tortured by long delays.
"There should be a guaranteed period within which all immigration cases are decided.
"We must also have an immigration system in which the cheats do not prosper."
People abusing the system were jumping ahead of honest constituents.
