Why immigration is good for all of us
Class-Red Pepper magazine

Why immigration is good for all of us provides a powerful counterargument to sensationalised reports of the effects of immigration on Britain at a crucial time when media and political criticism is at its height.

This pamphlet is the second in a series of mythbusters from Class and Red Pepper, designed to expose the realities behind the recurring myths which often skew the debate on immigration.

Featuring an introduction from Diane Abbott MP, misconceptions about immigration are analysed and the realities are presented.

This briefing shows that:

  • immigration is good for the economy
  • the economy is not affected by "benefit tourism"
  • immigration is not responsible for lower wages
  • migrants do not come to Britain to solely to access healthcare
