One out of five unemployed people in the UK are migrants, official figures reveal

One in five unemployed living in the UK are migrants, official statistics have shown us for the first time.

The statistics show us that 317,000 migrants are unemployed, this includes 98,000 that were born in the EU and 219,000 who were born outside the EU.

The percentage of EU migrants who are out of work is 4 per cent, while the percentage migrants from nations who are not a member of the EU is 6.2 percent. The employment percentage of migrants overall is 5.3 per cent.

Ever since the UK voted to leave the European Union  the number of Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK has surged by a third to a record breaking 316,000 and  this will not stop until sensible immigration controls are in place.

Bulgarians and Romanians in the UK now make up one out six people whilst people coming  from other European nations has generally taken a small decline.

Many experts have generally agreed that there will a huge surge of migrants before the UK formally leaves the EU in March 2009.
