In her speech, Suella Braverman, the Home Secretary, outlined the government's immigration strategy and emphasised its commitment to law and order.
Migration Watch UK's Chairman, Alp Mehmet, expressed reservations about the proposed immigration measures and commented on the government's track record in managing immigration. He remarked:
There is no doubting Suella Braverman’s desire and commitment to deal with illegal immigration. However, our biggest reservation is that we have heard it all before.
We were promised control of our borders, yet we have witnessed the ongoing, astonishing disorder in the Channel and a staggering net migration figure of 606,000.
Regrettably, the highly promoted points-based system has fallen short of resembling the effective Australian model. It's essential that we move beyond rhetoric and take concrete actions to ensure genuine border control.
