Tories worried about base finding out how much they spend helping immigrants

A briefing note for a Conservative MP suggests the government is worried about how spending on immigration programs is going over with its base.

The House of Commons immigration committee is currently studying how government-funded settlement services can better help the economic integration of immigrants.


As a citizen I do find that expenditure worrisome.

Why do we have to spend on immigrants at all?

Are they incapable of supporting themselves?

Shouldn’t the ability to fend for one’s self be a prerequisite to acceptance?

What sort of immigration policy focuses on people unable to cope?
