Tough new UK immigration rules for Tier 4 visa students
More non EU/EEA Tier 4 students International students will be banned from working in the UK while they study. Many Tier 4 students will be forced to leave the country when their studies finish under tough new rules.

University students will not be so badly affected. Many of the changes will take place in August and November this year.

UK Truckers say losses of £1 billion due to illegal immigrants
According to the Road Haulage Association (RHA), businesses are potentially losing £1 billion worth of goods every year because of the actions of illegal immigrants crossing the English Channel into the UK.
The RHA says that migrants stowing away in trucks are damaging goods, leaving companies with no choice but to destroy cargoes because they cannot take the risk of delivering contaminated goods.
Chief executive of the RHA, Richard Burnett, said: "Business owners are being forced to take extreme action by scrapping cargo. They can't take any risks if goods have been tampered with or contaminated."
Anti-immigration group rises up in German town
The town of Freital in Saxony, Germany, has witnessed the rise of a new anti-immigration group after some locals were shocked to find that a new 'central asylum camp' had been opened in their town at a hotel (Hotel Leonardo).
Every week night the 1,200 strong group, known as 'Freital Defends Itself', meet and march to oppose the opening of what they've dubbed a 'hotel home for migrants.'
The group says that the facility was opened in their town without prior warning. The opening of the camp for immigrants was also not mentioned during discussions with the national government earlier in 2015.
