50% of the UK nationals want that legal immigrants must obtain the UK Citizenship even as they become more sympathetic towards the immigrants and refugees. This has been revealed by the yearly survey of Aurora Humanitarian Index for public opinion. The report comes even as the new UK Home Secretary has assured to transform the hostile immigration policies.
The survey witnessed participation of 1, 053 UK nationals and it reveals that increasingly the citizens are feeling that the government must enhance efforts to assist immigrants and refugees. They also want that legal immigrants are assisted to obtain the UK citizenship, as quoted by the Independent Co UK.
38% of the participants in the survey are regretful that the UK as a nation is not doing adequate to assist the immigrants. This is an increase of 11% in comparison with 2017. 50% of the participants intend that legal immigrants must become UK citizens which are an increase of 10% from 2017.
The survey has revealed that hostile immigration policies of the UK Government are not a reflection of the public opinion. Experts have urged the Ministers that the positive public attitudes must be translated into laws. This follows a severe scrutiny of the immigration system of the UK in the last few weeks after the Wind rush scandal.
