TODAY (Thursday Feb 25th) it was announced of the Office of National Statistics that net migration to the UK was estimated to be 323,000 in the year to September 2015. That represents an increase of 31,000 on the same period in 2014/15.
Cllr Tim Aker MEP said: "As we have been saying for many years, being a member of the European Union means we lose the right to control our borders.
"While the other political parties fully support the idea that bureaucrats in Brussels should dictate our migration policy, we in UKIP believe that should be a decision made in this country.
"Research from the Bank of England has shown an open door migration policy drives down wages of those most in need in our society.
"The decisions taken by the government show they are more interested in cutting the wage budget for their friends in big business than supporting families putting a meal on the table.
"Only a vote for UKIP and a vote to leave the European Union in June will change any of this because the establishment don’t listen to anything other than votes."
