Children held at Heathrow in 'disgraceful' conditions

Sorry, I'm a bit confused. Are you summarising recent judicial changes in the UK? 
We live in a dangerous world with a huge inequalities, but simply moving millions of the world's poor to the UK does not solve the problem. We are a small island increasingly reliant on imported food and other resources. So we depredate the rest of the planet to house people over here on benefits, do we? I don't think that's fair. So, no these children are not guilty, but their parents may be either irresponsible or attracted by a promises of easy money.

Guilty until proved innocent you mean?

As sorry as these conditions may seem, why are many attracted to an overcrowded island? Could it be because of rumours of generous welfare benefits?
