Where Are These Economic Migrants Coming From?

Recommended Posts

Where are all these people coming from?

Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

The net inflow from the EU is still roughly the size of the British Army despite cries of alarm from industry over Brexit. Meanwhile, non-EU net migration at 248,000 is astonishing. It is the highest for 14 years and the result of the Government's failure to take effective action to reduce it over recent years.

Meanwhile

More British citizens leave the country than arrive

72,000 arrive against 124,000 leave. 

Table 1: Latest Migration Statistics, Year Ending March 2018

                              All Citizenships    British    Non-British    EU             Non-EU
Immigration          614,000                72,000    542,000         226,000     316,000
Emigration            344,000              124,000    219,000         138,000       81,000
Net Migration       271,000              -52,000    323,000          87,000      235,000

 

10 Key Points on Mass immigration and Population Growth

1.The current scale of migration to the UK, 330,000 a year, of which roughly half is from the EU, is completely unsustainable.

2. As a result of this mass immigration our population is projected to rise by half a million every year – the equivalent of a city the size of Liverpool – for as long as immigration is permitted on the present scale.

3. England is already twice as crowded as Germany and 3.5 times as crowded as France.

4. The additional population growth makes congestion worse and adds to the pressures on public services. This comes at a time when public spending is being reduced.

5. One in four children born in England and Wales is to a foreign born mother. The rise in the number of births has put pressure on NHS maternity services.

6. It has also led to a shortage of school places. 60% of local authorities will have a shortage of primary school places by 2018.

7. The UK has a serious housing crisis. Mass immigration is the main reason for the additional demand. If it continues at current levels, we will need to build 135,000 new homes a year just to house new migrants and their families. This is 370 per day or one home every four minutes.

8. Population growth on this scale renders integration of newcomers virtually impossible.

9. Three quarters of the public want to see immigration reduced and half of them want it cut by a lot.

10. To stop the rapid rise in the UK’s population size, net migration would have to be reduced to well below 100,000 a year. It is currently at over 300,000.

I can't imagine them filling in the next census form.

The census in the United Kingdom is decennial, that is, held every ten years, although there is provision in the Census Act 1920 for a census to take place at intervals of five years or more. A census of the population of the United Kingdom is taken every ten years. The 2011 census was held in all countries of the UK on 27 March 2011. It was the first UK census which could be completed online via the Internet.

According to the "72-Year Rule," the National Archives releases census records to the general public 72 years after Census Day. As a result, the 1930 census records were released April 1, 2002, and the 1940 records were released April 2, 2012. The 1950 census records will be released in April 2022.8 Aug 2017

So we have to wait till 2093 to find out whether there were too many people in the UK after the 2021 census, but I am sure we already know the answer to this.

72 years is in the USA.  It's 100 years in the UK.

Thanks for correcting me. So we have to wait till 2121 to find out whether there were too many people in the UK after the 2021 census.
