The British Labour government is in the process of fine-tuning a class-based immigration policy to suit the needs of the market. Home Secretary Charles Clarke’s announcement in February of a four-tier work permit scheme was just the latest refinement in this plan. This ‘modern’, capitalist-friendly immigration system underpins all today’s spin about keeping out ‘unfounded’ asylum seekers but letting in skilled economic migrants and is no less racist than the policies that preceded it. FRFI opposes all immigration controls. Nicki Jameson reports.
