Mass immigration is damaging Britain, says Cameron's interior minister

Britain's Home Secretary May speaks during the Police Superintendents Association of England and Wales annual conference in KenilworthBy William James MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Mass immigration is damaging British society, Conservative interior minister Theresa May said on Tuesday, promising a tough approach on an issue that will influence Britons’ choice of whether or not to leave the European Union. “When immigration is too high, when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society,” May, seen as a possible future leader, told a party conference in the northern city of Manchester. Mass immigration strained public services like schools and hospitals, depressed wages and pushed people out of work, she said, describing the economic benefits as “close to zero”.
