390,000 reasons to stop uncontrolled EU immigration now


Published Apr 13, 2017

UKIP Immigration Spokesman John Bickley said, "Despite the spin from Government, the Labour and Liberal Democrats that the current scale of immigration, particularly from the EU, is unreservedly good for the UK, the ONS has let the cat out of the bag by stating that 390,000 EU migrants are out of work and likely to be claiming benefits, including child benefit for children who don't even live in the UK.

"How many non EU migrants are out of work claiming benefits? How many asylum seekers are claiming benefits? The total numbers are being hidden from the British public because there would be an outcry if the truth came out.

"British taxpayers are being taken for mugs, paying to subsidise migrants who haven't paid into the pot but are enjoying generous benefits they wouldn't receive in their home country. No wonder the UK is such a magnet for migrants.

"This Tory led government have already let slip that uncontrolled immigration will continue for years after we leave the EU and that generous benefits will continue to be paid to EU citizens, including those that come to the UK after the recent triggering of Article 50 and after leaving the EU

"This Remain led government and Remain led civil service cannot be trusted to deliver an immigration system that sees the UK in total control of immigration and free of EU interference and control."
