ASI comments on UK net migration figures feature in CityAM

Deputy Director Sam Bowman's comments on EU immigration to the UK features in CityAM:

“Today’s immigration figures - the highest on record for immigrants from the EU - are good news for Britons. The vast majority of these immigrants are here for work or study, and the bulk of the evidence suggests that EU immigrants pay more in taxes than they cost the state in spending. That means less borrowing and lower taxes," said Sam Bowman, deputy director at free market think tank the Adam Smith Institute.

“They bring new skills to the economy and there is some evidence that they create opportunities for low-skilled natives to move into more highly-skilled work."
