The immigration debate we have all forgotten


Onward Director Sebastian Payne writes in the i that the Government must focus on cutting both legal and illegal migration.  He writes:

‘Tackling the current scale of legal migration is just as important as the illegal numbers to voters, and will prove just as tricky to make progress on before the election. Although passing the Rwanda legislation was anything but a smooth process, there was ultimately a consensus among Tories that the problem cannot go unresolved. The same level of commitment is now needed to bring down economic migration.

A reminder of the challenge. Net migration hit an historic high of 672,000 last year and public confidence in the Government’s ability to reduce it has shrivelled up after too many unfilled pledges.’
