Views On The News: Immigration

In this thought-provoking programme, volunteers consider the arguments for and against open borders and ask whether there is a generation gap on attitudes towards immigration. Being positive about immigration we learn, has become a badge of moral superiority and is used to admonish a supposedly bigoted white working class for being anti-immigrant and work shy. This is not a by-product of immigration to the UK but a result of its use by an elite who consider the masses in need of behaviour modification and migrants in need of strict control. Without open borders, Saleha Ali argues we cannot claim we have freedom.
