New laws to name and shame banned hate preachers
Preachers of hate banned from entering Britain are to be named and shamed as part of tough new measures on extremists.
The Sunday Mirror has learned 230 people have been excluded from entering Britain since 2005 - but none have been publicly named by the authorities.
Hate preachers Omar Bakri Mohammed and Louis Farrakhan only became known about when they spoke out against the decisions.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is expected to announce the tough new measures this week. They are aimed at preventing anybody who stirs up religious or racial hatred from entering the UK.
The new rules will allow the Home Office to ban Islamic extremists, neo-Nazis... and even animal rights activists. Those named will also be put on international "watch lists".
Home Office chiefs hope sharing the intelligence will mean extremists are prevented from travelling to other Western countries.
The government has announced new measures to stop those who want to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages from coming to the UK.
The new laws will target extremist Muslims, neo-Nazis, animal rights terrorists and others.
"Coming to the UK is a privilege and I refuse to extend that privilege to individuals who abuse our standards and values to undermine our way of life," said Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
