wonder what the Brexit Party policy is
Brexit Party MEP and businessman Ben Habib explained if the Brexit Party was in power, they would drastically change the UK’s EU enforced immigration policy. During an interview with Express.co.uk, he outlined how their immigration plan would be vastly positive for the UK as their policy would focus on skill-based migration. He said: “It will avoid the two things that I think enter people’s mind as far as freedom of movement is concerned which is unbridled influx or unskilled workers. "Keeping the lid on wages and reducing the United Kingdom’s productivity."
Mr Habib continued: “A significant part of that is due to labour being used rather than more investment being made in infrastructure and machinery.
“Of course you are going to go on using cost-effective Labour if it is available as it is through freedom of movement.
“The most defining difference is that it would be a skilled based policy.
“Only allowing people into the United Kingdom people that the UK can’t source domestically.
“So we will put British jobs first for British people and then open up jobs for the rest of the world.”
In addition to promising the parties immigration policy would result in more jobs for British people and more skilled workers invited to the UK, Mr Habib also noted industries that would benefit.
He claimed the Health industry and Science industries would see the greatest benefits quickly after the implementation of the policy.
He said: “The industries that immediately come to my mind are doctors, nurses, the NHS and medical professions.
Scientists and research graduates, professors, -areas where we as a nation would really benefit from the improved brainpower that would be brought to bear for our collective benefit.
“I think we can do it very quickly.
“You can turn that boat around quite quickly, obviously there is a lag time for people to make applications to join the UK.
“And that can’t be helped but you could turn that ship around very quickly.”
According to the Brexit Party: "The UK needs to adopt an immigration policy that enables the country’s economy to grow without adversely affecting local job prospects and without being a drag on productivity.
"The policy must be blind to faith and ethnicity. It should allow the continued propagation of multi-culturalism in the UK.
"Immigration should be governed by the UK’s needs for certain skill sets at any given point in time. The policy must be dynamic to ensure that the UK’s needs, from time to time, are met. The UK does not need and does not benefit from large influxes of unskilled workers, which has hitherto taken place as a result of Freedom of Movement.
"As part of the policy, the UK must consistently review the potential adverse impacts it may have on other countries. The well-documented phenomenon of ‘brain drain’, where a disproportionate amount of talented and highly educated emigrate from one country, is a concern — something the EU’s Free Movement People advocates have failed to address.
"As far as EU member state citizens are concerned, all those residing in the UK should be welcome to continue to reside and work here as well as apply for UK nationality in accordance with the declarations already made by HM Government. Reciprocal undertakings should be sought from the EU for British nationals resident in EU member states."
