Commenting, Alp Mehmet, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
These astonishing figures confirm that the number of overseas-born in the population of England and Wales has more than doubled to ten million since 2001.
The high and uncontrolled level of immigration has meant young people struggling to get onto the housing ladder, worsening strains on the NHS and the irrevocable loss of green space.
Furthermore, as the former 'integration czar' Baroness Casey noted, high immigration has meant parts of the UK changing out of all recognition over a very short space of time. The pace of change is unsustainable. Successful cohesion while this level of immigration continues is impossible.
The government must get a grip of immigration as they have promised, but failed, to do for over ten years.
