With the General Election looming, here’s a look at how the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat manifestos approach immigration.

After voting to leave the European Union, immigration has been a hot topic and is prominent in all three manifestos. The focus on international students is noticeable: Conservatives want non-EU foreign students to leave the country at the end of the course, while Liberal Democrats are hoping to reinstate post-study work visas for graduates in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM subjects).

All three are also focused on visas. Labour want to restore the rights of migrant domestic workers whereas Conservatives want to make it tougher for migrants to get family visas.

The manifestos also focus on skilled workers, Migrant Impact Funds and cracking down on employers who mistreat their foreign casual workers.
