THE London Assembly is to lobby the Government for a one off’ amnesty for thousands of irregular’ immigrants.
Members today welcomed a study by the London School of Economics about the economic impact of an earned regularisation’ of migrants.
“This study lends weight to the argument in favour of regularising the status of hundreds of thousands of Londoners,” Assembly Chair Darren Johnson said in a statement.
“They are already making a significant contribution to our economy. It would be negligence in the middle of a recession to ignore the potential to add �3 billion a year to Britain’s economy by introducing an earned’ amnesty for hard-working migrants.”
