New Europeans demand apology for exaggerated "invasion" claims - Migrant Rights Network, 15 May 2014

New Europeans launched a petition following the publication of official statistics showing that the number of men and women coming to the UK from Bulgarian and Romania had actually fallen by 4,000 since 1 January. Many politicians had predicted that there was going to be an "invasion".

Some politicians (from both sides of the House of Commons and from outside the House of Commons) had not just made wild claims but also tried to change the law to prevent people coming to the UK from Romania and Bulgaria in contravention of the principle of free movement. We are demanding that they apologise in the light of the new evidence.
