Tough new UK immigration policy launched

The United Kingdom has made a series of immigration reforms designed to crack down on illegal immigration and breaches of visa regime in the UK.

Speaking at the Institute of Government today in London, Prime Minister, David Cameron, noted a number of initiatives to strengthen the UK approach on immigration, including the new criteria and tougher British rorts position of family migration recruitment visa and other violations of the United Kingdom.

Cameron said that a tougher approach will require collaboration between government and citizens.

"For our part in the government, we are creating a new national crime agency with a dedicated border police command has the responsibility to safeguard the security of our border," he said.

But I want everyone in the country to help a |even reports suspected illegal immigrants to our Border Agency through the Crimestoppers telephone line or through the website of the Border Agency. Together, we will recover our borders and send home illegal immigrants. "

The Prime Minister highlighted the issue of illegal immigration through the routes of the family and marriage migration services. In response, Mr Cameron said the government will legislate to make forced marriage a crime or fictitious and after the reforms of family migration system marked by the controversial Interior Secretary, Theresa May, earlier this month .

The Government will also introduce a requirement for families who pay a deposit substantial financial thousand pounds in settlement cases a spouse or relative abroad.

In addition, changes will be made to the citizenship test for applicants for UK passports to include questions on British history, reflecting a move made by the Howard government in Australia in 2007.

"Let's change the citizenship test. There is a whole chapter in the manual for citizenship in British history, but, incredibly, no doubt in British history on the actual test," said Cameron.

"Instead you'll find questions about the roles and responsibilities of key institutions in Europe and the benefit system in the UK, so let's review all the evidence. And put the British history and culture in her heart ".

Migrant groups have responded strongly to the proposals. Don Flynn, Director of the Network of Migrant Rights, described the new policy approach as "backward" and disturbing. "

Interior spokesman Keith Vaz Labour, said the issuance of a requirement for migrant families to send large financial bonds will have a negative impact on diplomatic relations and the community.

"This (policy) antagonize the communities settled in Britain and infuriate allies as India."
