The secretary of state for immigration of the British government, Damien Green, said in an interview with The Sunday Times that the country will give priority to the “brighter” immigrants so they can reside in the UK.
Under this new legislation, the British regime aims to reduce the number of immigrants in the United Kingdom. Green said that this legislation will give preferential treatment to investors, entrepreneurs, artists, dancers, musicians and academics.
These reforms will bring “better” immigrants to the United Kingdom, those who lack of the skills to “help drive economic growth,” or contribute to enriching British culture will face greater scrutiny.
“What we need is a system that seeks those who will either create jobs or wealth or bring something to the high artistic and cultural aspirations we have,” said Green.
“We permanently want to make the UK the most attractive country in the world for the brightest and best. The era of mass immigration is over,” he added.
