Nor do I see the slightest evidence of "undue" pressures on the indigenous population(s). The internal migration has contributed immensely to economic wealth and welfare.

There are definite pressures on manual labour, with immigration stifling wages. Millions of people suffer from this fact.
The uneducated are usually xenophobic. The uneducated make up the majority of manual labourers. The greatest pressure from immigration is on the manual work force. A vicious circle that leads to the high tensions, evidenced by the most poor areas displaying these tensions, burnley, bradford, stoke the list goes on, look at the success of the BNP in an area and look at the biggest industries in the area and see the correlation. To say immigration does not cause problems is so, for lack of a better term, middle-class.
