Farage: Control our borders

 
"UKIP will: take back control of our borders; put a five-year moratorium on immigration for unskilled workers; introduce an Australian-style points based system."
Launching UKIP’s election campaign in March 2015, Nigel Farage said: “Control of our borders, that’s what people want.”

Mr Farage added: “We are making immigration the central part of our general election campaign.”

This pledge, along with four other key campaign promises, was featured on the “Pledge to Britain” card presented at a London launch event and posted on the @UKIP Twitter account.

From the UKIP 2015 Manifesto: “UKIP will limit highly-skilled work visas to 50,000 per annum, including those from the EU, and apply a moratorium to unskilled and low-skilled labour over the course of the next parliament.”
