- You’re missing some questions here. How much will house prices and rents rise when immigration is above the level of house building? How much are wages depressed because of the extra workers in the jobs market? How will health care and police be affected an increase of people?

People that live in deprived neighbourhoods complain that incoming immigrants have more anti-social and/or illegal behaviours. This is a concern for indigenous people within these communities. In turn I have heard many very decent immigrants complain about anti-social violent behaviour from indigenous people. How do we keep both sets of people content and tollerent of one another?
In reality this has always happened, it’s just typically it’s been people of European toned persuasion. Now the planet is smaller. I’m perfectly content that my 3 children are mixed race.
Lack of integration and intolerant believes of incoming culture is the real problem from a left wing perspective. If anything integration has become worse and far right Islamic views have hardened. The far right argument is that Muslims are ‘out breeding us’ and eventually we’ll become an Islamic State. What we really need is a renaissance within the Muslim community to counter act this.
It entirely depends on how nationalistic the culture and how it affects their economy.
It’s obviously people wanting a better standard of living and opportunity. They aren’t coming here for the weather.
