BBC Briefing on Immigration: How do I use it?

Your downloadable guide to immigration in the UK and how it shapes our culture and way of life.

These are external links and will open in a new window Close share panel In the last two decades, immigration has grown at a faster rate than ever before across the world - including here in the UK. Yet it is an issue that continues to divide people and there is often fierce political debate about how and if immigration should be controlled or encouraged - and what kind of immigration is right or wrong for the country. How the government will deliver its promised reform of the immigration system while continuing to attract highly skilled and hard-working foreigners to our shores will be one of the key tests of Brexit. So distinguishing the facts from the myths is a challenge. That is why immigration has been chosen as the second topic for the BBC Briefing - a new series of in-depth online guides analysing the big issues in the news. The Briefing has had input from academics, researchers, journalists and statisticians and its writers have consulted government bodies in the UK and overseas, think tanks and affected communities to reflect a broad range of perspectives. The immigration guide aims to provide useful context, reliable data and evidence all in one place, which you can read wherever you are. If you'd like some tips on navigating it, scroll down this page. This project is the BBC's response to your request for more transparency and better explanation of the facts behind the headlines. See the highlights The BBC Briefing has inspired a collection of special reports, features and analysis from across BBC News throughout the week. The week of coverage draws to a close on Sunday with a Radio 1Xtra Talks episode exploring what it's like to live in the UK without documentation. You can also listen via the BBC Sounds app from 21:00 GMT. Read more: BBC News (UK)

Yet again cherry picks facts .. ignores grooming gang.. terrorism .. extremism.. crime rates.. sexual violence.. drug use ..and unemployment rates in pakistani.. Bangladeshi and somalian communities UK 🇬🇧 IS DOING NOTHING to stop the illegals- we cannot take anymore due to no more room at the 🏨-bread basket empty & despite austerity WE ARE still £1.5 TRILLION IN DEBT-fact. I’m sorry they drown but it’s THEIR choice & we’ve enough Muslims who want own schools- NO MORE

Heres an out there theory: White supremacy was championed by Nazi's in 1940's against the Jews and failed. The elite Jews now run all major media outlets and have gained masses of control. They now push promass immigration propaganda to destroy the white race as an act of revenge The south west of Wales is a mess on this app, all the LAs are mixed up

Will immigration ever stop? Our capital has more immigrants than locals, when is the point we say 'Lets stop importing people and let our own flourish and expand'? Whats the end goal here? Because surely Europe cannot be the only safe countries in the world. how about one on poverty and despair of all our people-kids going hungry-homeless-claimant suicides-families forced to live in B&B's because of landlord brutality or simply cannot afford rent and feed the family at the same time-your silence on these issues as been noted.

WTF is a 'BBC briefing'? Hilarious, the BBC should not be lecturing anyone. You failed to mention the terrorism. Rape. Murder Pickpocket gangs fraud. Strains on housing. Schools and all the other problems immigration Brings. Typical BS propaganda from the BBC. BBC will tell you this is unbiased but every headline in the document in bold is pro immigration. This is just left wing propaganda. Us working class see with our own eyes what’s happening in our areas. Romanians arrive. Jump the que and get housed before Brits that’s fact

The left only ever want to talk about the good sides of immigration. Never the bad sides. BBC are experts at this. Also I just wonder if white gangs of dirty men were grooming 1000s of asian Pakistani children all over England. Would the BBC call it racist and a hate crime Lovely bit of left wing propaganda from the BBC. All contributors were left wing professors who are anti brexit and have never been to a working class area outside London and seen the damage immigration is causing.

BBC Weather: Temperatures plummet BELOW ZERO as UK braces for freezing cold snap next weekBBC Weather have forecast an extreme temperature drop across the UK as an arctic cold snap is set to grip the nation. Climate change poodles might be quiet for a week then eh

Lovely bit of left wing propaganda from the BBC. All contributors were left with professors who are anti brexit and have never been to a working class area outside London and seen the damage immigration is causing. Immigration after 2000 has been catastrophic for working class areas. BBC are so out of touch. In 2001 was only 8000 Romanians here now there is over 400.000. Media ridiculed Nigel_Farage when he said that that many would come . But look they did. That’s just Romanians.

so after schofield and fox the bbc news run a story that nearly all immigrants find the uk welcoming and most have never experienced racism..could there be an agenda driven by the evil racist tory govt..? in pure 1984..deny it exists..like waiting times at A&E will soon disappear To the bbc only non-whites can be immigrants, which is strange as the largest move these past few years has been white Europeans .

You must think we’re sooo stupid. Looking forward to the end of the licence fee. 😊 Aw, lovely cuddly BBC saying how welcome immigrants are. Meanwhile in the real world: Hate crime soaring, people living in fear, windrush, racism in football, gutter press Meghan treatment, Brexit, citizens of nowhere, most far right government in UK history. RacismStillAlive

FrenchRevolution will not be on the BBC News How do you use it?... Immigration damages countries over population shouldnt be the burden of white countries to take on migrants. There is a limit. people from India etc are taking over all jobs and now we feel as minority. When migrants are larger from one community at work it no good. Not all are high skilled. It's crap

BBC pays ex-Radio 4 Today host Sarah Montague £1m after equal pay probeFORMER Radio 4 Today host Sarah Montague has received £1million from the BBC following an internal probe over equal pay, we can reveal. The corporation is bracing itself for a “monstrous” bill as o… Best Boys Club I wonder who is paying for this😳 we pay squillions for the BBC bias, inflated salaries, they want to ignore over 30’s and now £1m for just one, on equality..... More to come.... The Sun only one to get sum wrong. By £600,000! Why does anyone ever buy the wretched rag?

So what are white people who move here from another country called? Yiu use your common sense, if you have any. BBC: You are getting more people from all over the world. Get used to it. People: No Liberals: raysists! Migration - Jan Theuninck, 2015 😳😳😳 It will be a cold day in hell before I take advice on immigration from the propaganda wing of the Tory party.

🤡🌍 Propaganda extraordinaire. Must have taken a leaf out of Goebbels book, it's so unsubtle. Stir, stir, stir the shit, gently down the stream. As hard working as the people who live in UK before they came you mean

The Greatest Dancer: Cheryl hits out at BBC crowd ‘Are you joking?'THE GREATEST DANCER continued on BBC One with a number of new acts hoping they had what it took to part the famous mirrors. However, Cheryl wasn’t too pleased with the audience’s refusal to vote through one particular dancer.

I am uncertain whether this will improve the opinion that the BBC is biased. On either side. Can't wait to ride on top of our trains in 2030 Message: You are being replaced. Can't wait for the indigenous population to be given a referendum on this topic as immigration has been forced on us like an experiment that's badly failed.

Brexit Britain underway I see 🙄 Spare toilet paper, my claws are as raw as your research into the issues How it shapes our culture? Mass rape of our kids, more crime, self-segregation, stuff like that? Anyone who says immigration is not depressing wages is either ignorant of basic economic theory or a liar.

So that’s where my license fee is going..... good to know vita being used for something other than making quality TV shows ?

BBC may waive gagging clauses of previous equal pay settlementsMove comes in wake of landmark Samira Ahmed case and amid increasing scrutiny of paying practices The BBC should cut the pay of the men earning more than women, not increase the women's salaries. They can't pay a fair wage and they demand people pay for a TV license! New (woke) BBC equality: All shows/programs are equal All audience sizes are equal All presenters are equal (regardless of popularity)

Clickbait. Fuck of BBC after the 31st your out the door 😳
