Increasing net migration has been the main driver for the increasing UK population over the last 20 years, and reducing immigration and limiting benefit tourism entitlement for migrants have been the two key policy foci to deal with this. This article focuses on the latter of these. This article will analyse how such changes in welfare entitlements for migrants is also impacting in an exclusionary way on the citizenship rights of the wider native population.
