“33 criminal convictions? Welcome in the UK!” – Somali migrant invited to stay

A Somali criminal migrant who has been given the right to stay in Britain despite having 33 prior criminal convictions has been once again jailed for dealing addictive drugs to the community.

According to BirminghamLive, Abdi-Mahad Osamon sold powder cocaine and crack cocaine to an undercover police officer while also urging him to try his “very good” heroin.

Osamon was handed a minimum sentence of five years and seven months by Judge Robert Brown, who leniently reduced the sentence down from seven years due Osamon submitting a guilty plea.

Since first arriving in the UK, the Somali immigrant has racked up an astounding 33 convictions which include dealing Class A drugs, theft, firearm possession, fraud, offenses relating to the police and public order, drug possession, driving offenses, and crimes against a person.

The attorney of Osamon tried to dissuade the presiding judge from invoking Britain’s “three strikes” rule by drawing attention the fact that one of his prior drug-dealing convictions had involved peanut dust, with which Osamon used to trick customers, and contained no drugs. But Judge Brown was having none of it.

“He’s done it twice before and that’s not mentioning all his other convictions,” Judge Brown said.

“Although there may be others above you in the chain and others who control you, you are, at 31, a man responsible for your own actions. I do not think five years and seven months is unjust,” the judge told Osamon.

Unfortunately, Osamon probably won’t serve the entire five year and seven-month prison sentence since its customary in Britain for convicts who are given determinate sentences to be let go halfway, or in some cases two-thirds of the way into their sentences.

As things currently stand, nothing would suggest that any actions are being taken by the British government to revoke the criminal migrant’s right to live in the United Kingdom or to deport him after he serves his sentence.
