Immigration will not dramatically fall after Brexit, says Amber Rudd

The Guardian:

There will be no dramatic fall in immigration as soon as Britain leaves the EU, the home secretary has suggested, as she announced the government would consult businesses over plans for an immigration system over the summer.

In comments that appeared to back the Brexit secretary, David Davis, when he said the door would not “suddenly shut”, Amber Rudd said the government was “against cliff edges” when it came to reducing immigration.

I thought cutting immigration and “taking back control” were the two key Brexit objectives.
