The New York Times: Η καθαρή μετανάστευση στη Βρετανία ξεπερνά τις 600.000 ετησίως

Net migration to Britain exceeds 600,000 a year
Immigration numbers in Britain have reached a new high as its government is divided internally over how to manage migration policy. Since 2021, as Britain completed its departure from the E.U., the number of Eastern Europeans entering the country has dwindled, while immigration from India, Nigeria, Pakistan and the Philippines has risen.
Statistics for last year show net migration at 606,000, an increase of almost 120,000 over the year before. The figures underscore the dilemma confronting Britain’s prime minister, Rishi Sunak, who faces growing political pressure to curb the number of immigrants even as he tries to revive a sluggish economy hampered by labor shortages.
Though the figure was lower than many had expected, the upward trend has stirred tensions at the highest reaches of the government. The Conservative Party has been in power for 13 years but has failed to meet a succession of promises to reduce immigration.
Context: The rise in immigration was driven by non-Europeans entering the country. The total includes around 360,000 international students and their dependents, 235,000 people coming to Britain for work and 172,000 on humanitarian visas.
