While the global Left will undoubtedly choose to call anyone who is against the overrunning of one’s own country by immigrants “racist”, a good majority of people in Great Britain are against giving amnesty to illegal aliens and are worried about what immigration will do for population growth in the country over the next decade.
According to a Deltapoll survey commissioned by Migration Watch UK, 51% of Britons do “not support a proposed amnesty for illegal aliens.” 38% are in favor, but only 11% are “strongly” in favor among that 38%.
This comes after a rise in illegal boat migrants landing in Great Britain throughout 2019 and the U.K. government suggesting giving amnesty to illegal aliens who had been in the country for 15 or so years.
According to a Migration Watch UK spokesman: “Those who enter the UK illegally make their first act in Britain a criminal one and should be returned from whence they came. While those who enter legally and stay on when their visas run out should not be able to run down the clock thinking they will eventually be granted residence.”
This is what many who are against illegal immigration (such as myself) often point out. When Donald Trump first pointed out the various types of criminals that illegal aliens often are: murderers, rapists, drug, sex and gun traffickers, etc., he was lambasted by the Left as being racist for saying that “most” of them were criminals. But the reality is that ALL OF THEM, BY VIRTUE OF BEING HERE ILLEGALLY, ARE CRIMINALS. Their very entry into the U.S. in an illegal fashion brands them as criminals, as they should be, because it is ILLEGAL to do that. The same can easily be applied for any illegal immigrant entering any other nation, it’s just that the U.S. and the U.K. are just about the only ones who have brought this issue to light.
And even then, it’s not necessarily the governments of these countries that point out the problem. Again, it’s the U.K. government that is seeking to implement an amnesty for illegals who had been living in the country for many years. The people of the country are the ones who are against that and who are pointing out the problem.
The spokesman continued: “Amnesties send out entirely the wrong signals, they are a slap in the face to all those who play by the book and simply don’t work – as the Italians, Spaniards and French have all found out. Most importantly, as our Delta polling has clearly shown, the bulk of the British people are also against them.”
Exactly as he says, amnesty sends out the wrong signals, is a slap in the face to anyone who does things the right way and doesn’t help out a nation. Amnesty is basically the government giving up on enforcing their own established immigration laws and saying “meh, do what you want, no one’s gonna stop you”. It sets a dangerous precedent, as we have seen not only in the U.S., but in many countries worldwide. If the government doesn’t care about its own laws, why should the people who are entering the country, or even the people already in the country? Why should immigrants, hoping to leave to a (for now) better country, play by the rules, pay their dues and wait their turn in line when the government isn’t going to punish those who don’t abide by the rules and do things the right way? What reason is there to do what is right when those doing things the wrong way don’t get punished for it?
And the reasoning behind amnesty is beyond stupid as well. Boris Johnson has said in the past “we effectively have [amnesty]… If you have been here for 10 or 12 years, I’m afraid the authorities no longer really pursue you. They give up. Why not be honest about what is going on?”
You would think, then, that he would take steps to avoid people illegally going into the country and taking advantage of this “effective” amnesty, but no, his strategy is “we’re already basically doing it, let’s just make it actually part of the books,” which is extremely moronic, as it doesn’t solve any problems. It incentivizes immigrants to forego the established system of immigration in favor of forcing themselves into the country because they know they won’t be punished for it if they can hide long enough.
Doing this also presents problems as population grows in the country, which the Britons are also worried about. According to Deltapoll, 68% of Britons expressed concern about the rate of immigration into the U.K. and its effect on the country’s overall population. Out of this 68%, 36% expressed “great concern” and 32% expressed “some concern”. But regardless, a notable size of the population of Britain is concerned over the rate of immigration and what it would do to the population of the country in the future.
Migration Watch UK Chairman Alp Mehmet said: “As ever, the British people, with their usual common sense, have shown themselves to be way ahead of the political class. Their concern about population growth and the scale of immigration that drives it is clear. They also see that the only way to deal with this unsustainable and damaging growth is for a significant reduction in immigration. Why can’t the political class not see that?”
I would wager it’s because they largely don’t care, which is ironic considering the massive pro-Brexit victory British people handed to “Amnesty Boris” Johnson last December and considering one of the biggest, if not the biggest, reason for the British people having voted in favor of Brexit (more than once) is because they want to take control of their borders and keep illegals from entering and staying.
Illegals will tend to (illegally) vote in favor of those who allow them amnesty, which is why so many politicians all over the world tend to think of this as a favorable position. This allows for such politicians to remain in power for just about as long as they want, since they don’t really care about the people they are supposed to represent, but care about their own well-beings. Why do you think it is that the Democrat Party has practically abandoned the blue-collar, white class of voters? They lambast them as being “racist” for being concerned over illegal immigration because they are certain that enough Latinos and illegals in general will support them, as well as the white people who feel the idiotic “white guilt”.
But the British people, it seems, are mostly not idiotic. Unlike the Germans (who are quickly going back to their Nazi ways, though through a more globalist outlook), the British don’t want immigrants galore in their country. They don’t want their own government to ignore the law that is in the books that is meant to protect their borders and their people.
I suppose we will need to wait and see if the U.K. government wakes up to the will of the people, though I don’t expect this to happen any time soon.
