Andrew Bridgen points out that, unlike the UK, the US has control of its own immigration policy

30th January 2017

Following the Foreign Secretary's statement about the implications for the UK of the recent changes in US immigration policy, Andrew Bridgen points out that, unlike the UK, the US has control of its own immigration policy.

Does my right hon. Friend share my disappointment that so many Members of this House have got so used to our not having control of our own immigration policy that they appear to resent another sovereign country having control of theirs?

 

My hon. Friend puts it bluntly, but accurately. Whatever Members may think about this policy—there is a wide measure of agreement about the policy across the House—it is the prerogative of the President of the United States and the American Government to do this.
