A points-based immigration system proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson has already drawn harsh condemnation. Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon said the plan would be “devastating” for the country’s economy. “Our demographics mean we need to keep attracting people here – this makes it so much harder”, she said.
The United Kingdom will bar entrance to non-English speaking migrants and unskilled overseas workers, according to a post-Brexit immigration plan presented by the government. It urged businesses to no longer rely on cheap labour and instead invest in automation and retaining staff. Authorities noted that by reducing overall immigration to Britain it is delivering on Brexit proposals demanded by the electorate, while at the same time fulfilling campaign promises made during recent elections.
