HOME Office officials spent £1 million paying 300 illegal migrants to go home last year – less than arrived on a single day last week.
The under fire department splashed the cash on over 300 failed asylum seekers and visa overstayers who were being booted out of Britain.

Failed migrants are entitled to £3000 if they meet certain conditions if they agree to
leave Britain.
Around 330 were handed the payment, resulting in the million pound spend.
Last Sunday 468 migrants landed on British beaches alone with nearly 40,000 arriving this year alone.
Furious Tory MP Lee Anderson said: “It’s an absolute scandal that we are paying people to be deported when they should just be sent back.
“It just shows there’s a decent wage to be had, coming here to get kicked out.
“The government needs to just grow a pair and send illegal migrants back to France the day they arrive here without a penny.”
A Home Office spokesperson said: “The public rightly expects us to remove people with no right to be here.
“We ensure all spending is carefully scrutinised to make sure that every pound of taxpayers’ money is spent in the most effective way”.
