Economic Migrants

Today, as promised, I welcomed Denise McDowell from Migrant Workers Northwest to my home so that we could record an interview. That interview has now been published and you can listen to it below. For more options go to the Podcast web page.

The inward migration of workers to Britain has always been a matter of contention — yet never more so than in recent years when the concepts of economic migrants, unlawful immigration and asyllum have become confused and blended together. As I had hoped, Denise was able to help explain the difference between economic migrants (the lawful and unlawful kind) and asylum seekers and debunk a few other common myths and fancies.
