IMMIGRANTS POLITICAL PARTY’S MAIN DEMANDS ARE:
- Abolish the 45,000 + immigration rules introduced by the current government.
- Restore the right of appeals in Immigration applications and restoration of Judicial powers.
- Reduce Home office application fees and they should be linked to inflation.
- Overhaul of the Immigration Department at the Home Office with only legally qualified staff.
- Strict 3 month deadlines to determine cases.
- End to intimidation and harassment of Immigration Solicitors/Lawyers.
- Immigrants should be given proportional representations in the House of Lords and in government departments, specially immigration.
The IPP was set up as a reaction to the anti-immigration policies of the present government which have forced immigrants of all nationalities to unite together and stand up using this platform to protect their basic human rights. Other countries worldwide have set up similar political parties with the same vision. We are fed up of being treated as if we have no fundamental human rights that require protection. We are not ‘products’ or ‘goods’ but human beings and we should be governed and subject to humane laws.
The IPP represents not only the interests of immigrants who are in the process of being settled in the UK but also those immigrants who have been settled here for generations. A large majority of immigrants who have obtained British citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK have deep connections to their countries of origin. Most of them not only have their parents, families and properties back home, but also have their business transacted in both countries. These links to their homeland are further bolstered by their children marrying within their families back home to keep the joint family system surviving.
We believe that UK immigration laws were mostly fair and proportionate while the Labour Party were in power. (Note we are not Labour supporters per se – nor are we a sub-body of the Labour party). The Conservatives however have a long history of making policies specifically targeted against immigration and immigrants. One of the most controversial and notorious immigration Rules called the Preliminary Purpose Rule is still in the minds of immigrants.
We, like the majority of immigrants and indigenous people are not in favour of an open door immigration policy – but simply want a fair one. However under the name of ‘tightening Immigration laws’, we have seen immigrants being deprived of their basic human rights by the current Government.
Its time to stand together and deport what is an ‘Empire’ State mentality and to revert to the true British traditions of championing law, liberty and justice. We (like so many people including non-immigrants), believe that this country should not have an open door policy to immigration – but a managed one that benefits everyone, not just the staff at the Home Office or whoever is head of an Immigration Department in Government.
The IPP is duly registered with the Electoral Commission of England.
Our goals are to fight for civil liberties and promote human rights for everybody in the UK. We are seeking to:
We believe it is time for Britain’s 16 million-strong Immigrant population who contribute so much to society to be given a fair deal. The IPP will fight for their rights.

‘‘ First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me’’.
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
