At a time when immigration into Britain is already at a record high, the UK government has agreed a visa deal with India that will allow more migrants into the country.
With the number of migrants entering the country already at a record high, the agreement raises doubts about Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s promise to reduce immigrant arrivals.
Under the arrangement, up to 3,000 visas will be awarded to degree holders in India that will allow them to work in Britain for two years, with a similar number of visas being made available to UK graduates who wish to go to India.
With the UK issuing a record 1.1 million visas for migrants to come to Britain last year, the UK-India agreement comes as immigration is already at a record high, with immigration from non-EU countries spiking after Brexit.
Some have voiced concern at the number of Indian migrants coming to Britain, with Sunak’s own Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, even saying that she has “reservations” over future trade deals shaping further arrivals.
Others have claimed that the recent influx of Indian nationals was a contributing factor to the recent sectarian riots that have taken place in various UK cities, including Leicester, which saw gangs of Muslim and Hindu men compete for supremacy on English streets.
