There is a place for legal immigration, there is no place for illegal migration.
Illegal immigration is what the restaurant raid was all about, That is controlled by gangs and a world that most of us would never want to see. We need to rid our country of illegal immigrants and not take a wishy washy liberal approach to being nice to everyone.
I agree with you that no one wants the world to be run by gangs that exploit vulnerable people. I think there may actually be a misappropriation of the word 'liberal' here, which seems to have become prevalent in social media and political rhetoric, but to be clear: the term neo-liberal refers to capitalism in its purest form, that is to say the foundation upon which our economy has been functioning since Thatcher AKA - as meritocracy that disregards those unfortunate enough to be born in Doncaster or Neath where the prospects are extremely bleak. It is not actually linked to being liberal in views that benefit anyone other than corporations, elites and global trans-nationals. The term 'liberal' has come to mean anyone who exercises a modicum of kindness or compassion. This should not be confused with also wishing to uphold the law OR being weak. Liberal does not equal being weak. Being kind does not equal being weak. So I have to contest your 'wishy washy' reference as it is both incorrect and dismissive of kindness and compassion, which do not equate with weakness or blanket views, such as allowing illegal working practices. They are if anything the only values by which a society can function correctly.
