A group in the United Kingdom called “Leave Means Leave” is putting up a concerted fight against the overflow of refugees and migrants to the region in recent times, pressing for a government policy that prohibits immigration of those who aren’t considered skilled workers.
Basically, the group wants a five-year ban on unskilled workers in order to reel back immigration numbers to sustainable levels.
“Brexit group Leave Means Leave says the measures will help migration back to levels last seen in the 1990s and finally hit the failed Tory target of tens of thousands.
“The group, backed by former Cabinet ministers as well as 15 Tory MPs, says Brexit provides a ‘golden opportunity’ to stem immigration at last.
“It is particularly concerned about unskilled labour which pressure group Migration Watch claims makes up 80 per cent of existing EU incomers.
“The blueprint for “fair” immigration has been drawn up by former UKIP leadership candidate Steven Woolfe.
“He wants to see the introduction of a ‘British working visa system’ and have Parliament vote each year on a figure for net migration.
“Many pro-Brexit supporters were angered last week when the Prime Minister hinted that free movement from the EU could continue for years into an ‘implementation period’ after leaving in 2019.”
Meanwhile, response from the govenrment is tepid.
A Home Office spokesperson said, the Express reported: “We are working across government to identify and develop options to shape our future system to ensure the best possible outcome for the British people. We want to see net migration fall to sustainable levels — the tens of thousands.”
