EE immigrants fully capable to serve Britain

LONDON: Eastern European Countries have lambasted the Britain over its apprehension that EE Immigrants may claim more benefits from the Britain.
Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Hungary has strongly protested when British economic experts have expressed concern regarding the financial benefits the Eastern European Immigrants will claim.
In their joint declaration they termed the restrictions on entry of Eastern European Immigrants expired on December 31, as injust and an attack on freedom of movement. Free movement of people is a cornerstone of EU integration, an indispensable functional building block of a truly integrated Single Market, they said.
They were of the view that educated and well skilled people are eager to come to Britain have played very positive role to boost the Britain’s economy than they take out and should not face restrictions on their movements.
Migrants from central and eastern parts of Europe are younger and economically more active that the average British worker. They boost the UK economy by contributing more in taxes and spending than is claimed back in social benefits, they said.
According British newspaper reports half of the British population is against the Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants and have said that Immigrants of these countries should not be given stay, employment and benefit claim in Britain.
The surve4y was published at a time when immigration controls announced by Prime Minister David Cameron earlier this week saying Bulgarians and Romanians will face new rules limiting their ability to claim benefits, telling voters that he shared their concerns over EU migration.
Cameron also said he wanted eventually to restrict the ability of migrants from poorer EU states to move to richer ones, angering the European Commission.
According to survey of Channel 5 stated that 47 per cent of Britain’s people were of the view that Romanian and Bulgarian people should not be given the right to work and stay in Britain and also not allowed to claim benefits. 57% during the survey said that Immigration has negative impact on Britain’s economy.
According to an estimate of Migration Watch UK, a campaign group, more than 50000 immigrants are expected from these two countries in coming five years.
Cameron said he shares many Britons’ concerns about a possible influx of migrants from Romania and Bulgaria next year, when EU restrictions on the bloc’s two poorest countries expire. He is ready to face Brussles over the Immigrants and will defend the limit to benefits for immigrants, Cameron said.
Free movement of people is a cornerstone of EU integration, an indispensable functional building block of a truly integrated Single Market, said the foreign ministers of Visegrad (V4), adding that migrants from central and eastern Europe, whose ranks Cameron puts at about a million people, had been hugely beneficial to the British economy.
They said that immigrants from their countries are younger and economically more active than the average British workforce; they also contribute to UK national revenues far in excess of the social benefits they use. Any abuses of welfare systems should be tackled within the existing EU legal framework, they added.
The V4 countries hope that any measure to be introduced in this context by the United Kingdom, or any other Member State, will be compatible with the legal requirements of the European Union, they said.
Bulgarian Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin has called Cameron’s plans discriminatory and appealed to London to acknowledge Bulgaria’s contribution to the European Union. Romanian Deputy Labour Minister Codrin Scutaru called Cameron’s remarks unacceptable and populist and said Romania demanded and deserved the full rights of an EU member.
