UK student visa subject to 'criminality on a massive scale'
Since 2011, applicants for Tier 4 visas have had to pass a multiple choice English test and be interviewed by an immigration officer online. In February, the BBC revealed widespread fraud at English language test centres in London where invigilators read out the test answers and substitutes took interviews in the place of applicants.
Tier 4 visa holders shown to have obtained their visas fraudulently will likely have to leave the UK.
Minister: UK will not bow to business case for increased immigration
A junior minister in the UK government has told an audience in the City of London that the UK government will not relax immigration controls.
Speaking at a debate in the City, Mrs Morgan accepted that a relaxed visa regime would benefit banks but said that fears about immigration had led many voters to vote for the anti-immigration UK Independence Party.
Italian PM: If EU will not help on immigration, we will leave Eurozone
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi says Italy may withdraw from the Eurozone if the EU refuses to pay Italy's border patrol costs.
Italy established a marine border patrol last year after 360 migrants died when their boat sank just off the Italian island of Lampedusa. It has rescued over 50,000 migrants in 2014 at a cost of around €10m per month.
Mr Renzi says that migration is a European problem so Europe should pay. He said that otherwise the EU can ‘keep your single currency and leave us our values'.

UK immigration inspector warns of 'proxy marriage' loophole
The UK's chief inspector of immigration, John Vine, has warned that some foreign nationals are taking part in bogus marriages to gain UK residence.
Mr Vine said the UK has no system for checking the genuineness of proxy marriages in such Countries as Nigeria and Brazil. Proxy marriages are marriages which take place when one or both parties are absent. There are fears that non-EU nationals are marrying EU nationals in proxy ceremonies in marriages that are not genuine.
Checks carried out on 29 proxy marriage certificates showed that more than 80% were invalid. The inspector warns that this may mean that many thousands of people have gained UK residence fraudulently.
Survey Immigration changes balance of UK politics
A new study has found that the votes of ethnic minority immigrants seem to be affecting UK election results. Polling shows that black and Asian immigrants tend to be faithful supporters of the left-of-centre Labour Party.
In recent EU elections, the Labour Party performed best in London where the largest minority populations are found. The results suggest that, while many white Labour voters may have voted for the anti-EU UK Independence Party, minority voters stuck with Labour. This suggests that Labour may have a lasting electoral advantage from immigration.
US interest in 'soccer' caused by immigration and 'moral decay'
A right-wing US columnist, Ann Coulter, has claimed that the US’s growing love of football, or soccer as the Americans call it, is caused by two factors; growing immigrant populations and moral decline. Ms Coulter says that she hopes that recent immigrants to the US who have brought their love of football with them will learn to love “manly” American games instead.
It seems that Ms Coulter will get her way, for the next four years at least. The US was knocked out of the World Cup by Belgium on Tuesday.
