How The Open Borders Industry Uses Victimology Dogma To Get Its Own Way

The Windrush scandal has brought into sharp relief the power and reach of Britain’s immigration industry. The government’s mishandling of the rights of those who had been granted settlement was a bureaucratic mistake. However, what is worse is that this scandal has subsequently been weaponised by powerful interests in order to imply that the strategy […]
