    Considering that my parents are immigrants, it would be weird for me to be against immigration. However, I am against immigration from Muslim countries.

    It's like Brexit - you only get two options, there shouldn't be any grey areas unless you're a Lib Dem supporter :moon:
    And that's why referendums are ****. :/

    Personally I am against.

    -Housing shortage as well as bringing down the house prices of areas with large migrant populations
    Housing shortage is down to successive governments selling off the housing stock and not replacing it. It is also down to the fact that our government allows 300,000 houses owned by billionaires to remain empty to keep house prices high.


    -Strain on other public services such as hospitals, schools, public transport
    That's far more to do with a lack of investment and the selling off of our public services to private companies with a profit motive. Immigrants provide a net benefit to public services, contributing more than they take.


    -Potentially more crime- petty theft, major theft, rape etc
    Statistics show that crime in immigrant populations is lower than average.

    -Disease
    What?

    -UK becoming increasingly more alien to UK nationals- Too many langauges, cultures etc A melting pot becomes a tinderbox.

    - Lack of jobs for UK nationals.
    1. So what? Most people still know English and most migrants will adopt it at some point.

    2. Can you demonstrate this in any way?
