Forcing down annual levels of immigration to the tens of thousands, as promised in the Conservative manifesto, would inflict a significant cost on the economy and the public finances
Any news headline connecting the cutting of immigration numbers to damaging the economy that is published in the context of today’s disastrous and failed Western immigration policies is a fallacy, and an example of the socialist left’s attempt to confuse the discourse.

Cutting harmful immigration is necessary for the survival of the West, survival as much as is bringing in a controlled number of immigrants who integrate and contribute economically.
