An Immigration Record In The U.K

 


.



Legal immigration into Britain climbed to a record 745,000 arrivals in 2022, despite the governing Conservative Party’s vow to curb that number. 


The figures were a fresh setback for the prime minister, Rishi Sunak, as he struggles to stop asylum seekers arriving in small boats on the British coast while trying to revive the economy and deal with dismal polling numbers.


The statistics relate to people given permission to enter the country, mainly to work or study. 



A majority now come from countries outside Europe, and the trend is politically awkward for supporters of Brexit. During the 2016 referendum campaign, those advocating departure promised to “take back control” of the country’s borders.
