Official: Poor suffer most from immigration
Large-scale immigration has damaged the poorest communities and deeply unsettled the country, Liam Byrne, the Immigration Minister, says today.
Mr Byrne says that inequality and child poverty are two of the main side-effects of migration, which has been running at record levels since Labour came to power.
He also highlights the pressures caused by migration on schools and housing, and how they are affecting attempts to improve educational standards.
This is what people like me have been saying for years, that immigration harms the poor. And, now, only when they are about to be destroyed in the local elections do they actually listen. Well it’s too late for them now.
We should be reducing our population and not increasing it, especially when it has been shown that in just 25 years we could be suffering from food shortages, Common sense tells us that if we have less food we are less likely to be hit by food shortages. Only the poor will suffer as food prices will increase because of the demand for a product that is lacking. Is it actually a good idea to increase our population to 69 million
