Why immigration policy has taken a back seat in the General Election | ITV News

Who gets to stay; who gets shown the door?

It’s a big and important question.

After all, the widely held desire to see migration reduced fuelled the Brexit vote.

So three years on, it might seem odd that the issue hasn’t merited much of a mention in this election.

Meanwhile, the main parties’ manifestos are long on slogans and short on detail.

Or perhaps, given the toxic nature of the debate and the tough decisions to be made, that lack of precision isn’t a surprise at all.
