Migration Watch has produced a list of ten key points which it has contributed to the debate on immigration. Many were initially denied but have subsequently been proved correct.
The first point is:
1 The scale of immigration
Migration Watch has been consistently right in pointing to the likely future scale of immigration. In 2002 we predicted that net non EU immigration would amount to two million in the following decade. This included an allowance for illegal immigrants, but it is now clear from the official figures that immigration will, indeed, total two million in the period even without including any illegals. The recent census confirms the scale of immigration.
