UK Net Migration Increased by 36%

The report reveals that 572,000 foreigners entered Britain on a long-term basis in 2010 whereas 346,000 migrated. Consequently, the ministers aim to decrease the number of net migrations. ONS figures also proved that the net migration levels, including the refugees and other foreigners who decide to stay longer than expected, have been gradually increasing since 2008. The figures also confirmed that the number of refugees' cases has risen to 5,125, it was previously estimated to be 3,110 in 2009. The number of occupational cases has also risen to 84,370 with four per cent compared to 81,185 in 2009. Immigration Minister Damian Green said: "These statistics reinforce once again why we are radically reforming the immigration system to bring net migration down to the tens of thousands by the end of this Parliament." The Refugee Council chief, Donna Covey expressed her great concern on the over turn of the asylum seekers' application. "We know the government is looking at improving the decision-making process for asylum cases, but they must do so as a matter of urgency to ensure that those in need of protection are not returned to countries where their lives are at risk," she said.
