Immigration policy is now part of national security strategy. Discussion of this topic should be qualitative. The question is who have we given visas and citizenship to over the past 25 years? Division Headquarters in British Politics Today.

Whatever the outcome of the Rwanda case, there is an immigration policy crisis that must be addressed. ‘Ordinary, decent crime’, as it is sometimes referred to in Northern Ireland, appears to be on the rise in some respects.

Security policing is more controversial than ever. And the task of implementing Shawcross reforms to the government’s de-radicalization program is not even half done. So no pressure.

What is surprising is that these seemingly independent political hotspots within the Home Office are becoming increasingly interconnected.

Most of the discussion about immigration in this country, whether legal or illegal, is quantitative. After the events in Israel on October 7, this discussion will become increasingly qualitative.

The government’s decision to cancel the UK visa of Egyptian TV presenter Moatas Matar, who is said to have defended Hamas, is seen as a key step in a new “get tough” approach.

But this high-profile case sheds light on a much larger issue: Who have we given visas and citizenship to over the past quarter-century, and why?

Who exactly are the ideologically motivated cadres operating in the UK nowadays – and how do they tilt the balance of forces within Muslim communities and beyond? What have been the cumulative, as opposed to just the individual, effects of their admission here?


This element was taken up in the government’s 2014-2015 review of the Muslim Brotherhood, commissioned by Prime Minister David Cameron.

It takes real political will to drive such far-reaching cultural change. Police have so far delayed aid in deportation efforts. Similar concerns apply to parts of the Home Office.

The Shawcross Review recommendation to incorporate preventive duties to combat radicalization into border force operations, rather than just on a voluntary basis, has been accepted by the Home Office, but remains ambiguous.

Even when a clear threat to national security exists, the system’s response leaves much to be desired.

MI5 chief Ken McCullum has repeatedly highlighted the threat posed by Iranian state terrorists on British soil in recent months.

The challenges are even more acute when it comes to illegal immigrants and asylum seekers entering the country.

Authorities are increasingly concerned about the possible role of extremists in dormitories and other refugee shelters.
We are right to focus on Russia, China, and the terrorist threat.

However, few consider that the strategic importance of the UK’s borders poses a challenge to national security. Things are changing, but not fast enough.
