Due to the way in which people are encountered and recorded when referred for enquiries on their immigration status, an immigration offence may not be immediately identifiable by the arresting or referring officer.

It is therefore not possible to provide accurate data in relation to the number of people arrested for immigration offences as part of Operation Nexus in each of the last three years.
