If you are referring to the million illegal immigrants escaping from their own countries (due in no small part to a couple of illegal wars in which the UK were eager participants and which led to the rise of ISIS and the overthrow of legal government in the area with no replacement) then I would be interested to know how the EU could be blamed for that. Most European countries struggling to cope with it certainly didn't invite it, they have been lumbered. The only assistance they get is from the EU, not much offered by the main instigators.
Do you think that UK leaving the EU will stop the illegals entering Europe? of course not. Do you think that the UK leaving Europe will stop a tiny proportion of the illegals trying to enter the UK illegally? Of course not.
What very well might happen is that the UK border will be moved back, from Calais to the UK. Why should the French have anything to do with it any more? Have fun dealing with them when they arrive in Dover and Folkestone, maybe you could set up a camp.
There may be lots of other reason why it would or would not be a good idea for you to leave the EU, but I don't see it changing the problem of immigration for you, at least not for the better. Your decision.
Yes, they are the ones that I was thinking about. I accept free movement of EU members its part of being a member. But what is the point of being a member of a club when there is no door policy and you let anyone in anyway. If we give up control of our borders between EU members surely you then expect the outside borders of the EU to be protected and controlled to non EU immigration.
I agree that coming out of the EU will not solve the Issue for the UK but staying in might force us to take a quota. To be honest this will be a bigger issue for mainland Europe. Morally we should do more to help but when we have so many in our own country using food banks, not getting the health and social care they need then you need to make some hard decisions. Simply being an island nation makes it easier for us to implement controls.
I really don't see what the big benefit of being out are but I feel that "immigration" will effect the way many vote.
Interestingly, I was in Zurich a few months back and the only big topic of conversation was immigration. While not an EU country they enjoy free movement within the EU. They need and depend on EU migrants to fill jobs in their country and they are considering putting border control in place. They know it will put them in direct conflict with the EU and will damage them as they need the ability for workers to enter and leave at will. However, they are at a stage where they believe non-EU migration is putting a strain on services and their way of life. They do not want to spoil their country by building more housing and infrastructure as they have no wish to ruin their outdoor paradise they have created. Plus many see immigration as undermining their culture. Interesting that the country known for being open and accepting those in need has been pushed to reconsider its position.
A few years ago I would have voted to stay in but the times they are a changing.
