Responding to Ed Miliband, UKIP's Immigration spokesman Steven Woolfe MEP said: "Today we see more political point scoring over migration, this time from Ed Miliband. He promises to ‘use his first Queen’s Speech to introduce “clear, credible and concrete change” to the UK’s migration system.’ It’s all very well making these comments but Labour Party’s record on controlling migration doesn't make for easy reading.
"Labour opened our borders unconditionally to hundreds of millions of people. This allowed over 4 million people to enter our country over 13 years. It caused mass wage compression, and placed huge strain on the NHS and other vital public services. The Great British public are fed up of listening to more false promises on such a vital issue. Only one party is taking this issue seriously. UKIP. We were the only party brave enough to bring the issue to the forefront of the political debate. And we are the only ones giving viable solutions to sort it out.
"At our recent conference I promised to cap migration to 50,000 a year. I can promise that as I also propose to leave the European Union, so we can take back control of our borders. We are the only party promising this. Labour and The Conservatives are committed to the EU, that also means they’re committed to unconditional open borders to nearly half a billion people. It is time we had a party in government that actually took the actions that are needed to control migration. Only UKIP will take back control of our borders."
