    On a more serious note, I think maybe its because America is a much bigger country, so the effects of migration don't hit as hard. Also America doesn't have things that can prove to be an incentive for migrants such as free healthcare and a high minimum wage.

    That's what I think anyway.

    I wonder if it could possibly have anything to do with the different population densities? 35 people per square kilometre in the USA, compared to 255 per square kilometre in the UK. Couple this with a long thin country that has only narrow major communication corridors, the lack of suitable space for big airports and you may understand some of the problems. Just a thought.

    If we had a high minimum wage then there wouldn't be as much 'cheap labour' from Eastern Europe here because they would be 'expensive labour' like the British workers.

    The EU is about the same size (in square miles as the USA).
    The average size of a state in the USA is about the size of the UK.

    When the "rust belt" collapsed in 2008 millions (literally) of people moved to states that were doing OK (like Poles moving to UK, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Holland etc).

    This also happend with New Orleans floods.

    You don't catch the states that take in these millions complaining

    You're just being naive or daft.

    the USA is made up of the same nationalities as the EU (poles, germans, english, irish, Africans, asians etc etc, in more or less identical amounts)

    That is a good idea and I think perhaps that is what should be done.
    The problem might be that a lunch might go up from £3.95 to £4.95....
    Would the UK office worker pay that or would that be just too much?


    It depends. If it works Great!!!

    What on earth are you on about? You can't even be bothered to stay on topic.
    Do you know what the word "INTERNAL MIGRATION" means...

    I give up. Britexit people are dumb or liars.

    If you want proof Illegaltobepoor" has given it.

    "Wrong!" - words fail me.

    Actually I'm not wrong. Will tell you why. The USA wants to create its own EU known as the Amero. Canada, USA + Mexico.

    Its already been stealth-ed in 1 way or another. I'll get the papers if u like?

    Ahhh... Ignorance is bliss right?

    Not everyone is voting leave because of migrants. Remainers like to make the point that this whole thing isn't just about migrants, yet you all seem to keep going on about it.

    Also, it's worth pointing out that while US citizens don't tend to complain about internal migration, as evident by Trump's support, there seems to be a pretty large dislike towards migration from Mexico.

    Its also about 70 billion times bigger than the UK. Seems an important thing you are not understanding. Hope this helps

    Higher wages is why coffee/sandwiches/beer etc costs a lot more in Switzerland.

    The irony is when higher minimum wages are discussed, it's the UKIPers and right wing of the Tory party - the same ones who tell us this story about immigration having driven down wages - who come telling us it would be a disaster and send unemployment through the roof. So they might take some convincing that us following the approach of their beloved Switzerland would be acceptable for the UK.

    When brits first arrived in Virginia, they took free houses, and plantations. from the indigenous poulations.
    And they thrived, because of this notion of free land.

    Whilst south america had lords and serfs. They didnt thrive anywhere near as much.

    They have racial segregation the same way as we do here, except, they go around mass murdering.

    Have you been following the debate at all? The EU is nothing at all like the USA.

    48 of the 50 US States do not speak a foreign language and learn English as a second language. 48 States are not united in a Eurozone that has entirely different economic policies from the other two. All states share Common Law, there is not one state that has a free and fair legal system whilst the others use the Code Napoleon. The US Presidency is elected but the EU Commission is appointed and so on..

    Any one who goes into this Referendum thinking that they are voting for a Union like the USA is making a huge mistake.
