Immigrants are great workers, claims the Home Office

Immigrants
on average earn more money than the UK-born nationals and contribute more than
£2.5bn to the economy, according to research by the Home Office.

The
research also suggests that there is little evidence that immigrants damage the
employability of UK-born nationals. Instead they fill gaps in the labour market
and improve productivity.

“Immigration
can play a positive role in the economy. Self-selection by migrants is likely
to mean that they are more resourceful entrepreneurial and ambitious,” claimed
the immigration minister Barbara Roche at the launch of the report yesterday.
