England just made its move to fix its broken immigration system and Ann Coulter is one happy camper.
Coulter has long promoted the same policies here that Britain just announced – Trump is trying to get the same done but is facing stiff resistance from the Dems in Congress.
Britain’s new policy will stop unskilled migrants from entering the country and will require any migrant who is allowed in to speak English.
What a concept? The British government in announcing the historic move said they will recruit foreigners “with greatest talents,” such as “scientists, engineers, academics and other highly-skilled workers,” and will switch the focus “of our economy away from a reliance on cheap labor from Europe and instead concentrate on investment in technology and automation.”
From The Hill:
Britain announced an immigration policy Wednesday that would prevent unskilled migrants from entering the country, requiring migrants to be English-speaking and have a job.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said the new policy will make it easier for “the brightest and the best from around the world” to enter the country, calling it a “historic moment for the whole country.”
The plan, which is intended to go into effect Jan. 1, 2021, aims to reduce the country’s reliance on “low-skilled” migrants and push companies to develop technology and automation.
It is encouraging firms to recruit foreigners “with greatest talents,” such as “scientists, engineers, academics and other highly-skilled workers,” according to the government’s description of the policy.
“We need to shift the focus of our economy away from a reliance on cheap labor from Europe and instead concentrate on investment in technology and automation,” the Home Office announced.
Patel asserted in various TV and radio interviews Wednesday that businesses need to focus on recruiting “economically inactive” British-born adults between the ages of 16 and 64, instead of bringing migrants into the country.
The Home secretary requested firms dial in on the British natives and “up their skills and make their skills relevant,” according to The Guardian.
The immigration policy will overhaul current rules and create a “points-based” system, in which migrants need to meet a threshold based on their skills, qualifications and potential salaries, according to the government policy paper.
