On Wednesday, Labour’s conference voted to effectively scrap all current and proposed immigration controls and end deportations if it comes to power in the next General Election.
Jeremy Corbyn will promise in his election manifesto that if he becomes the next prime minister, he will not only retain freedom of movement with the EU post-Brexit — if the United Kingdom leaves the EU before the next election — but “maintain and extend free movement rights” by opening Britain’s borders to the rest of the world.
Ripping up “the current Tory immigration legislation and any curbing of [migrants’] rights”, the party vows to “campaign for free movement, equality, and rights of migrants”.
In effect, there will be no immigration “system”, as Corbyn’s party has said it will “reject” any immigration policy “based on incomes, migrants’ utility to business, and number caps/targets”.
Further, in ominous and vague wording, the motion passed also said Labour would “actively challenge anti-immigrant narratives” — which could be interpreted to mean expanding the definition of hate speech to include criticism of mass migration, cracking down on academic, press, and online freedoms.
The democratic direction of the country would also be completely and permanently altered, with the party backing extending the voting franchise for national elections to foreigners living in the United Kingdom, which the far-left party referred to as “extending equal rights to vote”.
Shadow home secretary Dianne Abbott, who in a Corbyn government would be in charge of immigration and security policy, said of the passed motion: “Be assured, our plans for government include these provisions and a lot more, to make this country a better, more decent, and more prosperous place.”
