Conservatives on Immigration
The Conservatives say that for the past 12 years there has been nothing but a chaos in the immigration rules. Every time a migration problem rises, the Government proposes new ideas and introduces new Bills, which at the end lead to more confusion and unsolved issues.
“Control immigration, reducing it to the levels of the 1990s – meaning tens of thousands a year, instead of the hundreds of thousands a year under Labour,” is one of the measures the Conservative party will take to improve the British economy, according to David Cameron the leader of the Conservative party (conservatives.com).
The party will work on a four-step plan and if elected they will:
- Apply a limit on “the numbers of non-EU economic migrants” allowed to work in the country. The limit will change every year because they will carefully monitor the effect on the economy due to the rising population.
- Work on preventing illegal migration, thus reducing people trafficking and other crimes, with the help of “dedicated Border Police Force.”
- “Tighten up the student visa system,” which is so far the weakest system in the border controls.
- Implement “an English language test for anyone coming here from outside the EU to get married,” which will help for better social integration.
