Britain Kicks the Bums Out by Unveiling New Skill-Based Immigration System

Published

on

On Wednesday, February 19, 2020, the United Kingdom announced a new change in immigration policy that would bar unskilled immigrants from entering the country.

Under new requirements, migrants must be able to speak English and hold a job.

According to Home Secretary Priti Patel, the new policy will make it easier for “the brightest and the best from around the world” to enter the country, declaring it a “historic moment for the whole country.”

This plan will go into effect on January 1, 2021, which intends to reduce the UK’s reliance on low-skilled” migrants and incentivize companies to develop technology and automation.

It encourages firms to hire foreigners “with greatest talents,” such as “scientists, engineers, academics and other highly-skilled workers,” according to the government’s document marketing this policy.

“We need to shift the focus of our economy away from a reliance on cheap labor from Europe and instead concentrate on investment in technology and automation,” the Home Office announced.

Patel claimed in a number of TV and radio interviews Wednesday that businesses need to concentrate on hiring “economically inactive” British-born adults between the ages of 16 and 64, rather than importing immigrants.

According to a report from The Guardian, the Home secretary called on firms to focus their resources on British natives and “up their skills and make their skills relevant.”

The immigration policy will revamp current rules and establish a “points-based” system, where migrants must meet certain requirements which include employment and language proficiency before they can stay in the U.K for longer periods time, according to the government’s official policy paper.

Migrants must be able to speak English, while also proving they have a job offer from a known employer with a minimum 25,600 pound (roughly $33,000) salary.

Before Brexit took place, European Union citizens were allowed to freely move between countries, but under the U.K.’s new policy, that freedom of movement would be eliminated.

A substantial portion of Britain’s foreign workforce comes from Eastern Europe and they are generally involved in the food processing, hospitality, construction, kitchen work and elderly care sectors. At least 3.2 million European Union residents already living in the U.K. would still be allowed to stay and work.

Johnson is expected to introduce this bill next month.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
