This report will identify strengths and weaknesses of immigration to Britain. As it is known, United Kingdom has one of the highest GDP in European Union. Income per person is much more than in other territories. Amongst 27 countries Britain has one of the highest standards of living and economic output.

There is a considerable level of reasons why people immigrate to United Kingdom. First of all, immigrants want to improve standard of living. Work in overseas country provides with many advantages, e.g. high wages, general knowledge about job, culture education and foreign language. Secondly, people immigrate because of the wars and conflicts in their native countries. According to Leapman (2007), political monitor have put immigration at number one in the public s list of concerns. Foreigners might come and work illegally; therefore, it would be difficult for British people to get a job, because immigrant without visa presumes cheap labour, which is more likely to get hired. Additionally, there is a disadvantage for government as well, for the reason that less tax from employees will be received. Furthermore, wages probably will be sent abroad to family members, therefore, minimum will be spent in Britain. According to BBC (2009), one of the largest groups of people born abroad is Indian and Pakistani. The quality of life is much lower in those countries and as a result people immigrate. UK citizens might become racist to each other. Inhabitants can have the passport of the same country, but might be a different race and skin colour. Some natives think that Britain is for British, therefore, they can be racist to minority. Already some say that UK is to crowdie with foreigners, despite the fact  that Government predicts by 2031, Britains population will have risen from 60 million to 67 million, with most of the growth due to net immigration, Leapman (2007).
However, on the other hand, non-natives bring lots of strengths to Britain. More than 600,000 white Eastern Europeans arrived after the expansion of the European Union in 2004, Leapman (2007). The more people working the less rate of unemployment becomes, additionally, Government receives more tax. Mixture of the cultures can only enlighten people, BBC (2009). Different sources of knowledge give significant power to the country, as there are different religions backgrounds, traditions and education. Great Britain has strong economy. As well as mentioned above, Britain has lots of foreign students, which pay more than 50 per cent more for education than EU members and British. Immigrants bring lots of funds into the economy through investment in business. Last year out of 669,000 babies born in England and Wales, 147,000, or 22 per cent, were the children of foreign-born mothers.


To conclude it can be seen that immigrants give many benefits to the economy of the country by working and studying in United Kingdom, however, there are problems caused by them. Britain has enough foreigners nowadays, therefore, it is best to control precisely who to allow to come to country. Average wage rate is considerably lower in other European and Asian countries, consequently British society might take the advantage of it, because they will have a chance to use cheap labour, on the other hand, it is a big disadvantage for the parliament as less tax will be paid.

Immigrants benefits to British society (do not) outweigh(ed) the problems they have caused.
