I find it difficult to understand why so much fuss is being made about such a relatively small percentage of the net immigrant population. Fewer than 10% by my calculation. I believe the number of overseas students’ dependents is higher and, I would have thought, a group that would be far easier to discourage. Whatever the truth of this, a political party that puts reducing immigration at the heart of its policy is doomed to fail, or so it seems.
