This week, Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May visited Slough as they announced tougher new immigration policies.
The pair met with immigration officers and attended a morning raid in the town as part of the announcement of a new crackdown on immigration abuses.
From November a number of tougher restrictions will be imposed on universities and colleges who sponsor international students to study.
Educational institutions will not be able to enjoy highly trusted sponsor status if 10 per cent or more of the individuals they have offered places to are refused visas.
The threshold was previously 20 per cent.
There are also plans to halve the period over which European migrants can claim benefits.
European jobseekers will only be able to claim Jobseekers Allowance and other key benefits for a maximum of three months.
In light of the announcement, we want to know what you think of the tougher policies. Let us know by voting in the poll below or comment in the box below, on Facebook or on Twitter with your views.
Voting closes at 5pm on Tuesday.
