The purpose of the amendments is –

(c)to re-extend section 25(5) of the Immigration Act 1971 to Jersey so that the offence of assisting illegal entry (under subsection (1) of section 25) applies to things done whether inside or outside the Bailiwick of Jersey irrespective of the nationality of the person who does them.
