NBU Immigration Policy
A PROVISIONAL STAMENT OF PRINCIPLES
Immigration; the free transfer of labour within the European Union, or the influx of peoples from outside the European Union or Europe itself, is a major issue of concern to many citizens with today’s Britain. Immigration is however a very complicated social and economic matter. Through its very activity, immigration injects into the host society new cultures, ones that often clash with existent domestic cultures, domestic cultures that have evolved over generations and are held dear by the indigenous population.
On a small, warranted and controlled scale, immigration can be economically and socially beneficial to the host nation, accepting that the immigrant is willing and does adopt the culture of the host nation, especially its language. However it is recognised that on an uncontrolled scale, immigration that sees a large influx of persons who fail, or are simply unwilling to assimilate into the host nation and its existent culture, simply creates an isolated, fragmented and dysfunctional society.
The results of uncontrolled immigration are seen across Britain today. A modern British society has been allowed to evolve that sees fear and cultural isolation as day to day occurrences, breading mistrust and hate amongst its less positive attributes. Regrettably, we also see these negative aspects being used as tools through which Socialist and Marxist political groups seek to exploit these fears, thus attaining power at the expense of others. This must cease.
To enable the NBU to take a positive overview of British immigration issues and there cascading impacts, the NBU Immigration Policy is currently undergoing a review and update. The full policy will be published in due course. Meanwhile this is a statement of principles on which the detailed policy will be based once ratified by the NBU leadership team and membership.
Note; the following policy points will be evoked once Great Britain has left the European Union and jointed the European Free Trade Agreement – EFTA.
- The NBU calls for an immediate end to economic driven, uncontrolled immigration into Great Britain. Since Tony Blair took office in 1997 immigration has added almost four and a half (4.5) million new people to the British population. This figure does not include illegal immigrants, the exact number of which is unknown but is probably at least one and a half million and possibly higher.
- The NBU would introduce a five (5) year freeze on immigration for permanent settlement (with some exceptions) until we regain control of our borders, put in effective immigration controls, and deal with the issue of illegal immigrants. The overstaying of any visa would become a criminal offence.
- All current British residents who are originally from EU countries will be required to submit an application for continued British residence should they have been a full-time resident in Britain for less than five (5) continuous years. Residency applications may be turned down in the event that the person has a criminal conviction, long-term unemployed (not unemployable for medical reasons) or in the view of the Government; an undesirable resident.
- All new immigrants into Britain will be required to show that they have sufficient funds so to support standard medical treatment, including dental treatment, for a period of one (1) year following their arrival. This will apply to all applicants and their family members. Proof of current and valid private medical insurance will be acceptable.
- Any future immigration for permanent settlement must be on a strictly limited and controlled basis where that can clearly be shown to benefit the British people as a whole, our economy and our culture. Immigrants would not be able to apply for public housing or benefits until they had paid tax for five (5) years nor would they be entitled to vote or participate in public elections.
- As an interim measure, the NBU would enable people to come and work in the UK by means of a points based work permit system for limited periods of time and to fulfil specific gaps in the job market that cannot be filled by the existing work force. Applications for a permanent resident’s visa will be considered following five (5) years working. A major criminal conviction will be deemed an automatic denial of application and cause for deportation once any custodial sentence has been served.
- The NBU would put into place measures that would be used to identify illegal immigrants and remove them to their country of origin. A national identity card system is preferred. Exceptions may be made in limited circumstances, but there will be no general amnesty for illegal migrants.
- The NBU would withdraw from the European Convention of Human Rights and the European Convention on Refugees. This would enable us to deport foreign criminal and terrorist suspects where desirable. The NBU would allow genuine asylum applications on a case by case basis.
The daylight reality is; Britain is very densely populated country. England, where the majority of people live, is one of the most densely populated countries in the world: more densely populated than China, India and Japan. As a nation we simply cannot sustain the level of immigration that adds another one million people to the population every four (4) to five (5) years. This puts an intolerable burden on our infrastructure, public purse and public services and is therefore directly detrimental to the nation and its people and must be halted.
