    At debate club I am opposing this motion. I have some information but thought this would be a good way to get opinions! Why should immigration controls in the UK be 1) abolished 2) left the way they are 3) tightened (if you believe they should be)

    Any info regarding the current immigration system would be very helpful as I know quite a bit but wouldn't hurt to do some extra research and this is a good way

    Thanks!

    1) Immigration controls cost a lot of money. The law already says you cannot employ someone unless they are entitled to work in the UK, so people with no money will have to go away again anyway.

    2) The existing rules have been developed over decades. They must be OK.

    3) We have too many unemployed, we don't need anyone else. House prices are too high because demand exceeds supply, so stop making the problem worse. Big Issue sellers used to be white and British, now the ones we see can barely speak English: if you haven't got a home or job to come to, what is the point coming in?
