EU migration to UK is impossible to control
A UK business and education minister has admitted that it may be impossible to control the number of migrants arriving in Britain from the EU.
Nick Boles said that the British Prime Minister David Cameron cannot stop ‘very large’ numbers migrating to the UK, due to the EU’s freedom of movement laws, which he describes as a ‘fundamental principle of the EU.’ Like David Cameron Nick Boles is also a Conservative Party MP.
Mr Boles also said that another problem with the current policy is that highly skilled workers that the Country needs were being put off applying for say Tier-2 visas due to the increasingly complex visa process.
“What’s happening, which is a bit troubling, is that quite a lot of people aren’t applying because they think it’s going to be impossibly hard,” He said.
E-2 visas may soon be available for Israeli migrants
The E-2 treaty investor visa is only available to applicants from countries which have entered into a relevant treaty agreement with the US. They are available to foreign executives, managers and employees where a large amount of capital has been invested into the US.
It is thought that the legislation will be finalised in the coming weeks/months and that E-2 visa applications will soon begin for Israeli citizens.
Hispanics campaign for benefits for ‘Dreamers’
Hispanic groups are campaigning for President Obama to grant access to Obamacare health insurance, for a group of Hispanic immigrants known as ‘Dreamers.’
The dreamers are a group of hundreds of thousands of young adults who were brought to the US illegally by their parents. They were granted temporary legal immigration status by Obama in 2012, under his ‘deferred action’ initiative.
Under current policy, illegal immigrants are not eligible for health insurance under Obamacare, and in some states are also barred from Medicaid benefits.
Top Hispanic leaders are now arguing that since they are paying taxes, they should be eligible for government benefits.

Academic baffled by UK student visa policy
Professor Andrew Hamilton is the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University. He pointed out that "for the first time in decades, the number of international students at our universities has dropped, most markedly from India."
He also said that the policy on international students was harming the UK. Many top students, put off by the student visa requirements, will choose to study elsewhere in the world. He also urged politicians to remove students from migrant targets.
