“This report shows that the UK immigration system is completely flawed. This government’s attitude to immigration is simply unworkable and hopeless. Not only has the Teresa May failed to bring down net migration to the tens of thousands, she has failed to put the correct system in place to track those migrants who’s visas have expired. May’s record on immigration is not one of which she should be proud. In essence she has failed in her duty as the home secretary and should resign.
“The underlying point here is that only when we control the quantity and quality of migration can we track and control those migrants who are here temporarily. Of course, the Home Secretary and the Prime Minister refuse to recognise this because they understand that the UK cannot control migration until we leave the European Union.
“This is more evidence that shows the appalling state of the IT systems available to our Borders Agency and Immigration services. It is staggering that the way we catch those who overstay their visas, lie about their past criminal records and then seek asylum for bogus reasons is based on ‘tips’ from UK citizens and intelligence reports from authorities in other jurisdictions. Our own various Home Office IT systems for example, don’t seemed to be ‘joined up’ at all. For the Cameron Government, fixing the technical systems which oversee their mass migration policy maybe a 'priority'. For UKIP, exiting the EU so that the UK can use such technologies to absolutely control immigration as an independent state on our own terms is a national imperative.
“This government has failed to cut net migration, failed to tackle illegal immigration and now has failed to track migrants who have overstayed their visas. This is the record on which they will be judged at the general election. It is now clearer than ever before that if you want a fair, ethical, controlled migration policy, enforced by a properly funded border force, supported by a workable IT system to count migrants in and out, then you must vote UKIP.”
