How Migrants from Outside Europe Leave a 100billion Hole in the Public Purse
Daily Mail ^ | November 4, 2013 | Steve Doughty

Immigrants from outside Europe have taken £100billion more in benefits and services than they paid back in taxes, a major study revealed yesterday.

Over a 16-year period, the bill to the taxpayer of providing them with welfare, health and education was 14 per cent higher than the money they put in the national purse.

However, migrants from Europe–including those from Eastern Europe who came in large numbers after 2004–have paid more in taxes than they received, researchers said.

The report from academics at University College London claims to be the most far-reaching study yet conducted of the impact of migration on taxpayers.

Its findings were based on official figures, including those for public spending and tax receipts, and on the Government’s Labour Force Survey that looks at the lives of around 150,000 families each year.

Professor Christian Dustmann and Dr Tommaso Frattini said that between 1995 and 2011, migrants from European countries paid 4 per cent more into the tax system than they took out, while British-born people had on average paid in 7 per cent less than they received from the state.

However, migrants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA)–which is the 27 EU countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway–had made a ‘negative fiscal contribution’ overall,’ their report said.

‘This is partly explained by their demographic structure–non-EEA immigrants have had more children than natives, and we have allocated educational expenditure for children to immigrants.’

Well if everyone just took out exactly what was taken from them what would be the point of government? To safeguard our rights? That’s silly.

The author doesn’t know how many countries there are in the EU. It’s now 28, since Croatia became a member on July 1, 2013.
