I'm not sure about the UK, but in the USA food would cost a lot more because farmers would have to pay enough to get non-immigrants to work on their farms. Also everyone would have to clean their own houses and cook their own hamburgers. On the positive side our schools and emergency rooms wouldn't be as crowded.

Immigration is like a food chain. For example if you mosquito's disappeared (not comparing Mexicans or immigrants as mosquito's) the food chain will suffer immensely. Slowly insects that depend on mosquito's will die off and it will be a repeat effect. What I am trying to say is without immigration, jobs will diminish... More
