Figures show that 113 asylum seekers who were once kicked out and deported back to their homelands were later able to gain permanent residence in the UK on their second attempt.
The migrants, dubbed the “boomerang migrants”, cost the taxpayer a huge bill, according to The Sun on Sunday.
The British taxpayer has to fork out money for the deportation and foot the bill for the refugees to be housed once their second application for residence in Britain is successful.
According to data, seen by The Sun on Sunday, the asylum seekers hail from all over the world, and the cases span over five years.
Many come from African countries including – Somalia, Congo, Sudan and Ethiopia.
The information showed that there is a steady trickle of cases each year.
