Why do immigrants suffer a lot of persistent media insult in the UK?

'Half of new British jobs go to immigrants'

'Population of UK set to double by 2021'

'Immigrants putting a strain on public services'

'Immigrants proliferate crime'

'Illegal immigrants employed as security staff'

'Illegal immigrants employed by Home Office'

John Reed in a recent statement also called legal immigrants benefit theives- and so many others.

Now, I am CATEGORICALLY AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

But is there a delibrate attempt by the media to stir up migrant hate and resentment? it appears in the UK, immigrant = invader while this can be different in the US and Canada.

Having now graduated, im now looking at US or Canadian immigration. Is this migrant vilification of the same magnitude there (i know its everywhere - im just concerned about the magnitude)?

I am just getting really uncomfortable.

any inputs welcome.

Update:

migration schemes are the idea of the UK Government, and immigrants are called to apply arent they? so why resent the immigrants? im just puzzled.

    because it is true. Everywhere. These are the immagrints.

    Yes...immagrints!!!!! Because that is what they do. They steal. Rob. All crime is because of them. All sickness is because of them. AIDS is because of them. They stink. Smell

    and are the ones who rape and are the cause of domestic violence. Look at them. Just look at them. They cant stay in their own countries and do what the do because they will be killed so they go to other countries and do it. Thats why.

    You should be uncomfortable. Sooner or later some immagrint will affect your life. Real bad. Then it wont matter

    if they are legal or not. The fact will be that they are here and should be removed. Wait til it happens to you. Wait til some

    immagrint has some severe devastation involving your life

    or a family member. But they just keep on coming and multiplying. These pieces of crap bother every single person

    in the countries they infect except the government that allows them in. Thats what these stinking"IMMAGRINTS" bank on.

    The governments let them in and then they raise hell with everyone else. And get away with it. Thats right. They get away with it. And nothing is done about it. Nothing.

    Because we real British do not need millions of 3rd world immigrants and no law to stop it going into 10s of millions.

    Mass immigration from failed countries is no answer to world poverty and is unfair to real British people
