Javid: I'm a Big Fan of Immigration
And people said Javid was a hardline conservative after he banned ISIS bride Shamima Begum from returning...
Home Secretary Sajid Javid has said he would abandon the pledge to reduce immigration to the tens of thousands if he were elected Prime Minister.
Speaking to LBC, he said: “I’m a big fan of immigration. It doesn’t matter whether you’re from India or France, you’re treated the same. From speaking to people, they’re concerned with having control over immigration rather than crude numbers.”
Even former Chancellor George Osborne, famously writing in the Evening Standard wanted the non-existent restrictions scrapped “[N]one of [the Cabinet’s] senior members supports the pledge in private and all would be glad to see the back of something that has caused the Conservative Party such public grief”.
“Over the past seven years, the Government has not been able to reduce significantly the numbers of non-Europeans coming here — though we could,” he went on to say. Osborne explained they believed it would damage the economy to attempt to control immigration, that limiting controversial family reunion visas would be “unpalatable”, and “few thought we were taking in too many refugees”.
The head of the campaign group Migration Watch, speaking about the government’s immigration policy post-Brexit, said: “These are shocking proposals which run completely against the current of public opinion and which are likely to result in even more massive levels of immigration.”
The citizens have no voice. Every year in every survey, during every election cycle, the people demand that the gates to the world are closed and yet more come in even greater numbers. Our country, local services and infrastructure can barely cope, but they just never listen to the citizens!
