Migrationwatch welcomes the government's statement today on its intention to limit immigration in line with its election promise.
Special interest groups must understand the wider issues at stake and recognise the need to deal with immigration because of the large part it is playing in propelling our population to an unsustainable 70 million with the attendant pressures this will put on public services, our infrastructure, and of course the effect on community cohesion.
Said Migrationwatch spokesman Alp Mehmet: 'The Home Secretary is to be applauded. It is now for her to show she has the will and the courage to continue as she has started. I believe she has both.'
