Net Migration has Increased for the UK

I have read a lot in the papers recently about the topic of migration to the UK. Many people are understandably concerned about the huge number of people that have made their way to live in the UK in recent years. While not all of them stay for the long term, there has been a marked increase in the number of people from other countries who now call the UK home.

The most recent figures point to an increase of 20% all in all. This is the figure experts have arrived at even after taking into account the number of people leaving the UK to live elsewhere. Once these people have been subtracted from the overall figure, the increase of 20% has become apparent.

The coalition government has promised to cut down on the number of people who are entering the UK with the intention of living here. These recent figures have also indicated that many women who have moved to the UK in recent years have now had children – swelling the population numbers still further.

I feel it is important for the coalition government to take strong measures to curb the amount of people arriving in the UK to live here permanently. We should not close the doors altogether, but there is certainly the need to slow down the rate of immigration here.
