The number of people applying for asylum in the European Union has risen for the third year in a row.

In 2012 there were 332,000 asylum applications, up from 302,000 the year before, and up from 260,000 in 2010.

The highest number of applicants in 2012 was from Afghanistan (8% of the total number), Syria (7%), Russia (7%), Pakistan (6%) and Serbia (6%), according to the EU statistics office Eurostat.

The most popular country for registration was Germany (77,500 applicants, or 23% of the total), followed by France (60,600, or 18%), Sweden (43,900, or 13%), the United Kingdom (28,200, or 8%) and Belgium (28,100, or 8%).

These five member states accounted for more than 70% of all applicants registered in the ‘EU27’ in 2012.

The highest number of applicants to the UK came from Pakistan, Iran and Sri Lanka.

In 2012, over a quarter of the applications (27%) were granted. However, those who were rejected have the right to appeal, while remaining in the host country.

Almost 8,000 applications to live in the UK were successful. This is despite the fact that the UK is several safe countries away from any applicant’s homeland and therefore has no obligation to accept any such so-called asylum seekers.

More importantly, it has been determined that as few as 13% of failed asylum seekers are ever deported from the UK. This means that the actual number of new asylum seekers allowed to stay in Britain in 2012 is closer to 26,700.

In 2011, the most recent calendar year on record, over 566,000 immigrants came to live in the UK, by far the highest number of any country in Europe.

Only the British National Party will shut the door on the immigration invasion.

Vote BNP on 2nd May.
