Commenting on today's net migration
figure for 2011, Sir Andrew Green said :
“These figures are a disappointment.
Net migration remains far too high. Today’s numbers underline the huge difficulty
of getting immigration back under control after thirteen years of chaos.
The government is on the right track and numbers will come down in future
years. Meanwhile, the government must ensure that they pursue the national
interest ahead of vested interests. They now need a blitz on bogus students and
much tougher action on enforcement and removal. For too many years we
have had only a token effort at tackling illegal immigration.”
