Asylum charades

If asylum seekers and their families have "exhausted their asylum claims and do not take reasonable steps to leave the UK" why aren't their benefits automatically cut?

The Home Office should forcibly remove them from the UK, why bother with the charade of an appeals process when you can remain in the UK regardless?

Does the current asylum appeals process encourage asylum seekers to have children on arrival in the UK if the chances of repatriation are limited for asylum seekers with children?

Asylum seekers get £300 cash from the Government if they have a baby while in this country. The sole condition is that they report the baby within 2 weeks of having it.
