Immigration increased by almost half last year despite Tory promise to get it below 100k

Despite promising to cut immigration to below 100k, immigration instead rose by 109k to 318k under the watchful eye of the Tories last year.

The announcements today about a crackdown on illegal immigrants and demands about controlling EU immigration and access to benefit for EU immigrants are just bluster. None of these things can change without treaty changes and treaty changes are off the table.
