OK, trying not to delve into racism/people accusing people of being racist what are your opinions on Immigration into the UK?

Is there too much, too little, are we strict enough, too strict? What do you think?

to be honest i have no problem with immigrates into this country. As long as they pay their taxes and obey our laws I think we should welcome them. The UK would be alot poorer if it weren't for the doctors, nurses, builders, cleaners, lawyers etc that come into this country every year. They make this country a more colourful place, add billions onto the economy and i think that it should continue. The only people i have a problem with are those who come to scronge off the state. but i also have a problem with uk citizens who do that too.

Enough to send you winding up in financial difficulties. I have no problem with LEGAL immigration. The majority are decent law abiding people.

I think it puts a strain on us! I accept that having our 'fair share' is a good thing and those who are self supporting and contribute to our system are doing this country good BUT there are way too many that dont! England is a soft touch! the way I see it, if these people are fleeing for saftey and a better life, then why not stop at the nearest 'safe place' why head to England, we are a very small country with a large population considering its size! housing for 1 is a huge problem here and who takes priority! I myself was told I didnt have a chance in hell of being housed simply because I wasnt a refugee.

I just wanna make it clear that I am NOT a racist, my kids are mixed, I just dont like the fact that as an English born tax paying person, I get less support from this country than a non English speaking immigrant who just landed on these shores!

Without legal immigration this country could not function, Illegal immigration needs to be addressed, if only for the safety of the people coming here, the cockle pickers as an example, how tragic was that. People have a genuine need to flee their own country but coming here through the "back door" puts them in just as much peril, you have to feel for these people, its just sad.

What little I have read about the UK problems with illegal immigration it seems that a percentage of your illegals are bringing their hatred for anything 'western' and have no problem with acting like ya'll need to just lay down and swallow the changes they are pushing to have happen


where the argument that drugs being brought into America buy the illegal Mexicans is bottom line 'supply and demand' if there wasn't a market for the drugs they wouldn't be bringing them into the US,,don't get me wrong I am not saying this is the only reason we have the huge problem of thousands of them draining the US ,, and the drugs are one of dozens reasons they pour over our borders like they do
What is it that attracts your illegals to come into your country like they are??

Too often those fleeing their country do so because those in their government are corrupt, rich, AND violent. And the U. N. will not follow their PREAMBLE.

Illegal immigration is not as bad as people think it is, we are not an open sponge (as proven by the thousands at calise) I think we do a reasonable job at keeping out illegals compared to alot of countries in europe (such as france) who have a much bigger problem than we do (look at the paris riots)
