A campaign group that opposes mass immigration called for tougher measures yesterday after government figures showed immigrants were entering Britain at the rate of nearly one a minute. It means the country's net population rose by 500 a day, or 185,000 during the year.

Which do you think has more of an immigration problem: the US or the UK?

I don't think of immigration as a problem.

I think it is. Immigrants dont have to pay taxes do they?

The US. The UK is much smaller, is an island and doesn't have Mexico as its neighbour.

Illegal immigrants do pay taxes. Sales tax, social security, and others, which they are highly unlikely to receive any benefit from.

Well boohoo for them. They don't pay income taxes and they send home money to their country instead of spending it here.

Once they earn their money, they are free to do with it as they please, just as any legal residents or US citizens are.

Umm no they aren't, they are here illegally and deserve nothing that legal citizens do

The U.S., since Mexico borders us and we get tons of illegal ones coming over here. They probably come over here at a faster rate than the immigrants going to the U.K.

Basic human rights apply to all people, legal or not, and if people are going to employ them, that should include fair treatment of them as laborers, and after all, if they are on the payrolls of US based employers, how can you possibly restrict what they do with the money they earn?

Well then, you shouldn't have invented the "American dream" or maybe now it's turning into the "American nightmare" for some people.

There is no immigration problem. It's one of those great political misdircetions used to distract the voting public from the important issues. Immigration has always been on the political agenda, it is not a new thing.

I don't see it as a problem - I don't read the Daily Mail.
