UK Immigration Figures Set to Drop

Following the release of Ireland’s falling asylum figures for 2011 comes speculation of a fall due in the number of migrants to the United Kingdom. The Guardian reports today a projected 10% fall in immigration to the UK due to the worsening financial crisis. 

This is still far from the election promise of the Conservative Government of tens of thousands drop in immigration figures. In fact the efforts of the coalition have been severely criticised as making very little headway in regards illegal immigration. Furthermore some new policies on immigration have been seen to hamper economic activity in the UK, such as decreasing the amount of foreign students entering the UK. The UK government remains steadfast in its support of the policies however. 

Read the article in the Guardian examining the difficulties in fulfilling coalition promises of a reduction.
