Our new Prime Minister has promised a radical rewrite of our immigrationsystem.
As Home Secretary, I’ll be the one making this happen, because this new re-energised and optimistic Government is determined to get the country back on the road to a brighter future.
We’ve waited long enough to get here, so we will realise the benefits of Brexitby getting straight on with the job of grasping the opportunities offered.
We are a Government focused on bringing the change people voted for in the referendum and we want to unequivocally make Britain the greatest country on Earth.
That means ensuring that we continue to push for a dynamic, global Britain that is outward looking and which lifts our standing in the world.
Our vision is for a truly global country – one where we welcome the brightest and best, where we are more outward facing, and where we decide who comes here based on what they have to offer.
One of the things that is great about this country is that we’re a meritocracy. Aspirational, hard-working people who want to come here – and who have the talent and skills to contribute to our economy and society – are very welcome.
And as a daughter of immigrants, I know the immense benefits immigration can bring. There is no dispute about the positive impact of immigration to our country.
