Tory Party’s immigration proposals based on xenophobia

Responding to the Government’s proposed changes to migration rules, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Christine Jardine said: “Too many businesses are already struggling to hire the workers they need. Now the Tories want to stop them recruiting all but the highest paid employees from abroad.

“The Conservative Government’s immigration proposals are based on xenophobia, not the social and economic needs of our country. Ten months is nowhere near enough time for either employers or the Home Office to get ready for these new rules, creating chaos and confusion.

“Liberal Democrats will oppose these destructive policies and continue our fight for a fair, effective immigration system that works for our economy and treats everyone with dignity and respect.”
