Hello, and thank you for taking the time to listen. My name is Mariam and as a student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, I’m here for the opportunity to express my opinion on the economic, social, cultural, and political aspects of UK immigration.
First, I think about immigration regarding its advantages and disadvantages, especially in the economic area. The impact these immigrants have on the job market and economic development in the UK is underestimated.
I often hear or see an article about the fears of the British people regarding immigrants. The majority of the voters feel economically threatened by immigrants.
Either they’re living out of social benefits or taking Britons jobs, and that’s why the Home Secretary states that they want to “ensure that those that are coming here, are coming to contribute to the UK economy”.
