'And as ministers rightly tell us, the economy is indeed strong right now. In other words, the government's own assessment is that immigrants are not forcing people out of jobs as Mrs May says.
The government's own assessments in other documents say other things too. The Treasury, for instance, says immigration means annual GDP growth is .25 percentage points higher. The OBR, meanwhile, says immigration means the deficit is smaller because of the taxes immigrants pay. And then there are studies from the OECD and the rest showing immigration makes Britain richer and British public services more sustainable.'
The facts are plain that immigration is good for Britain.
