Our vote to leave the EU was a vote to take back control of our borders and our laws
We’re bringing immigration under control by introducing an Australian-style pointsbased immigration system. This means that we only take the workers our economy needs. Making things fairer for local people and reducing the burden on our NHS and schools.
And we’re also tackling small-boat crossings by giving the Navy control of the boats and sending the migrants to secure asylum centres in Rwanda, where we can process their claims properly.
So by reforming our broken asylum system, putting an end to people trafficking across the channel and making things fairer for local people, we’re delivering on Wakefield’s Brexit vote. But while we’re getting on with the job, Labour haven’t changed.
Labour MPs have refused to support reform to our broken immigration system, voting against it every chance they get. They’re siding with human rights lawyers instead of local people. It shows that Labour still don’t understand our concerns.
They don’t respect our reasons for wanting to leave the EU and take back control of our borders. You voted for change in 2019.
And by delivering Brexit, tackling crime, improving local transport and investing in our town centre, we’re starting to make progress on the change you wanted. Don’t let Labour take us backwards now.
