Amnesty

Give Amnesty to refused asylum seekers/ illegal immigrants who have lived in the UK for more than ten years. Only those with knowledge/skills (NVQ Level 3 and above) and speak English should be considered for Amnesty and they should be made to work in certain areas of our society where it is difficult to recruit from within the UK and the EU. For example: the Health and Social Care industry where there is a shortage of carers.

Benefits paid out abroad

Stop allowing benefits to be paid to people that are not even living in this country.

Example:

"This week, ministers admitted that more than £1million a month in child benefit is going to the families of youngsters who live in the former Soviet bloc countries. It was the first time that Labour has acknowledged that the money – funded by British taxpayers – is being paid abroad. The revelation triggered a political controversy over the fact that the Government is paying for the upbringing of children who do not live in Britain and who may never even have set foot in the country. It also underlines how our generous benefits system acts as a powerful draw for migrant workers. Moreover, this largesse is open to widespread abuse. The Trajkowski family qualify for child benefit because their father works in London as a builder and pays his taxes. Like all migrants from the eight East European countries which joined the EU in 2004, he won the right to claim state benefits after working here for a year."

Provide co-housing to help with mobility of labour

Establish co-housing projects in areas that need influxes of labour to encourage indigenous migration for work.

Short term housing contracts could help young people find their feet and live in a local community of like minded others and then move on.
