Immigrants to prove they can support themselves for 2 years

Comment 15th March 2013
  • Immigrants should not be granted residence in the UK unless they can provide proof that they are able to support themselves and their family for a minimum of 2 years.
  • Immigrants should only be accepted into the country if they have skills that are required here.

 

Why does this matter?

  • The UK is looked upon as the promised land by many immigrants who arrive here without any means to support themselves.

Many then apply for benefits, housing, and further education.

This increases the need for social housing; costs the country £millions in benefits; and reduces the number of further education places and grants available to UK resident students.

We are facing cuts in services whilst the associated costs are increasing. We need to be more selective.

  • We have millions of people out of work – it is immoral to accept immigrants that are merely going to add to that list – we need those with skills that are in short supply here, those that will bring value, not those that will drain resources.
