NHS chiefs lobby Home Office concerning Tier 2 visas for nurses
The concerns of NHS chiefs over changes to the UK Tier 2 immigration rules have been put forward in a letter sent to the Home Office. A report published by the Nursing Times says that many Tier 2 visa applications of nurses recruited from outside the European Union are being refused.
Additionally, some non-EU NHS nurses are resigning as a consequence of new immigration rules, which would see them having to leave the country, as of April 2016, if their yearly salary is less than £35,000 and they've been in Britain for six years.
Some EU Unemployed immigrants paid to come to Britain by EU
A European Union scheme is paying jobless migrants thousands of pounds to find employment in the UK it has been revealed. The UK has accepted a third of young migrants involved with the 'Your First EURES Job' programme – a targeted job mobility scheme that helps people, up to the age of 35, to find jobs, traineeship or apprenticeships.
Since the scheme started in 2012, 1,178 unemployed Europeans are understood to have secured jobs, training or apprenticeships in the UK. Britain's intake represents 34% of the 3,387 vacancies filled so far by the scheme, which is considerably higher than second placed Germany, with 659 placements filled.
Meanwhile, just 25 Britons under the age of 30 have secured employment using the scheme, a figure that represents just 1 per cent of the overall total.

Illegal immigrants in UK face rapid eviction from rental properties
Illegal immigrants living in Britain after being refused asylum can be evicted without a court order under new laws to be introduced by the UK government. Additionally, landlords failing to check the immigration status of tenants could be hit with a five-year prison sentence. This is all part of the government's plans to make Britain a less attractive destination for migrants.
UK Home Secretary, Theresa May, has warned migrants attempting to reach Britain that "its streets are not paved with gold. The government will be making changes to the law that will permit landlords to evict illegal immigrants without requiring a court order."
