Today the NAO published a report into the student immigration system. Commenting, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:
"The NAO have lifted the lid on a scandal to which we have been pointing for several years. This report is a shocking indictment of the student visa system introduced by the previous government. The NAO estimate of 40,000 bogus students in year one confirms all that we have said about the system being wide open to abuse. We renew our call on the coalition government to re-introduce interviews to weed out bogus applicants before they come to Britain as the Americans and Australians are already doing".
