This explains why the legitimate citizenry are all upset.
Managed and carefully thought out (including public input and control) immigration and asylum policies is one thing, full blown chaos is entirely another. When immigrants and illegal aliens are given more consideration than the nation of citizens themselves, then it’s a policy gone badly astray, and those responsible should be brought to book.
The migration chaos left by Labour: Over 13 years one immigrant came into the UK every minute and number of people in Britain born abroad rose by 3.6million
- During ‘open door’ years of 1997 and 2001 the number of immigrants rose
- Population was equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities
- Report found 7.23million immigrants were allowed to arrive in that time
- Figure doesn’t include offspring born in UK or those who entered illegally
- Relaxation of visas, bogus students and asylum seeker ‘amnesty’ blamed
Immigrants arrived in Britain at the rate of almost one every minute during the ‘open door’ years under New Labour, a devastating audit reveals.
The influx caused the foreign population to swell by 3.6million between 1997 and 2010.
The figure was four times higher than the previous 13 years and equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities outside London – Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield and Bradford.
The report was released as immigration – ranked the second most important issue by voters – finally came to prominence in the general election campaign.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage came under attack from both the Tories and Labour after ditching his party’s commitment to cap net immigration at 50,000.
And Ed Miliband attempted to seize the initiative on the issue, ridiculing David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions over the Tories’ failure to reduce net migration to the ‘tens of thousands’.
