Migration Watch UK
Cut Immigration is a campaign run by Migration Watch UK, outlining the impacts of both legal and illegal migration on our country.
Our objective is for the government to commit to significantly reducing immigration, a promise that has been repeatedly made and subsequently broken, for more than a decade.
We are pleased to have the support and guidance of the following people:
