In the months before the UK voted to leave the European Union, the Scottish Government was in a panic over the number of people who were expected to arrive in the country.
With the result still uncertain, the Government started a process of drawing up plans for an Immigration and Border Control Agency.
This has since seen a massive influx of migrants arrive in Scotland.
Now, according to Scottish Migration Minister Ruth Davidson, immigration levels are starting to fall and are expected to remain low for a few more months.
“We have seen a huge amount of migrants arriving and we are hoping that the Government will come to a decision to maintain our current level of migration, but not to exceed that,” she said.
The figures were compiled by the UK Border Agency, which is based in Glasgow.
It’s not surprising to see a fall in immigration, since the UK is not an EU member state and many people are currently staying in Scotland to try and secure work visas or leave.
The Border Agency has had a difficult time dealing with the influx of refugees in the UK, as it has had to process around 8,000 applications a month to deal with a growing backlog.
The latest figures show that migration has dropped by around 5 per cent in the past three months, according the UK Statistics Authority.
“This is a very good thing for Scotland.
We have had to deal in some cases with people who are not coming to Scotland for quite some time, who have been here for quite a long time,” Scottish Immigration Minister Ruth de Beer told The National.
The Scottish Government’s migration plans have been met with concern in the rest of the UK.
Many people are worried about the impact immigration could have on social cohesion and the economy, and have expressed concerns about the cost of maintaining a system that allows migrants to arrive without any restrictions.
“Migrants are coming from all over the world, and it’s a great boon for Scotland and a great boost to our economy,” Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said at a press conference last month.
“But if you think about the whole country, it is a huge strain on our schools and hospitals, and our public services, and many, many people who depend on public services.
It is not something we should be doing.”
Immigration has long been a contentious issue in Scotland, and the country’s independence movement saw the creation of a new Border Agency in the mid-1990s.
The Government has tried to introduce reforms since, but the reforms have yet to be enacted into law.
Many other countries around the world have their own Border Agency.
The UK Border agency has had problems since it was set up, and has struggled to meet its immigration targets in the short term.
Since 2016, the number has dropped dramatically, and in 2020, it had a population of just 2,818.
A large part of the fall in migration is attributed to the Brexit vote.
However, the Border Agency was still a vital part of Scotland’s economy at the time of the vote.
The organisation was set to provide a £6.5bn boost to the Scottish economy by 2020, and also funded £15bn worth of social cohesion projects.
It was also supposed to provide an extra £500m in tax relief for businesses.
However the Border Authority was forced to reduce funding to help pay for the changes.
Now that Scotland is leaving the European bloc, Scotland’s Border Agency is going into administration.
In the coming weeks, it will likely be liquidated and new Border Agencies set up in other countries.
Scotland’s independence vote also saw a big drop in migration, as many people voted to remain in the union and others voted to vote to leave.
Some experts say that immigration could be a major factor in the vote, as well as economic concerns.
“Immigration has always been a major issue for Scottish people.
The EU is a big issue, it has always had a huge impact on the country, but now, it’s also going to be a big problem,” former Deputy First Minister Alex Salmond said in the lead-up to the referendum.
Scotland is one of a few EU member states that have not been a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), which was created by the Schengen Agreement in 1993.
This means that anyone travelling to the EU does not need to have a passport from a member state to enter the country or be allowed to stay in it.
The EEA, however, has also been plagued by problems.
Scotland has not ratified the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), and some other member states have been trying to impose their own standards on immigration.
The Brexit vote also has led to a fall of the number that have applied for asylum in Scotland from 790,000 in June 2016 to 587,000 on June 29.
However immigration is still the biggest issue for the country and it is unlikely to go away any time soon.
“I think it is fair to say that the referendum has made immigration a major
