A recent survey credits immigration as British society's most important social problem. So, in response to the news that a huge backlog of applications to stay in Britain has been found boxed up in the Sheffield offices of the UK Border Agency, we pull together the best news, teaching resources, websites and multimedia on the subject of immigration to the UK.

From the the Guardian

UK Border Agency has backlog dating back 10 years, inspector finds
News story on chief inspector's discovery of boxes in the UKBA's Sheffield offices stashed with more than 16,000 unprocessed applications from migrants for permission to stay in Britain, some of them dating back almost a decade.
Border Agency - Guardian readers' stories
Guardian readers share their stories and experiences of dealing with the UK Border Agency in seeking permission to stay in Britain for themselves or their partners.
Immigration is British society's most important social problem
Results of a survey which shows one in three Brits believe tension between immigrants and people born in the UK is a major cause of division in the UK. And yet, as this article explains, the country is at heart tolerant of those who come to its shores.
Deportation story video
The moving and powerful story of Roseline Akhulu who was diagnosed with kidney failure a few months after arriving in the UK in 2004. After a successful transplant, the UK border agency rejected her claim to remain in UK, but if sent back to Nigeria she will be unable to afford the life-saving drugs she needs.
Estimating future migration from Romania and Bulgaria
On 1 January 2014 British labour markets will be open to Romanian and Bulgarian nationals (the 'A2') as they are to people from the rest of the EU. Many are wondering what the effects will be and the issues are explored here.
UK immigration: five essential charts
Some useful data in chart form on the facts around migration: including how many born in the UK and born elsewhere (and where), migration over time, reasons for coming here and English as main language.

On the Guardian Teacher Network

Fascinating teaching resource from the People's History Museum which uses real historical sources to explore the subject, including a telegram from Barbados to Britain in 1953 asking the British government to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, colour or religion.
Mo Farah - inspiring a generation
This lesson takes us on Mo's amazing journey from Somalia to London 2012. The learning activities give us some insight into the plight of the refugee and the secret of success.
Suitcase stories - tales of immigration
Powerful teaching resource which looks at the tales of four immigrants as they arrive in post-war Britain.
Migration explored
Interactive geography teaching resource which explores a wide range of aspects of immigration, including push and pull factors, comparing immigration to emigration and effects on the host country of a migrant labour system.
Immigration podcast
Made by a history teacher to help her students with their GCSE history WJEC exams on immigration to the USA in the 1920s - but the podcast has a wider appeal to those studying immigration.

The best of the web

Migration Observatory
This is a gem of a website, packed full of info and downloadable data - including tools to create your own bespoke charts.

Interesting organisation set up to think about the future of Britain to debate identity and integration, migration and opportunity. The British history section of the website is particularly useful. Also see this Ipso Mori poll commissioned by British Future which showed immigrants are most positive about the UK's future.
19 Princelet Street, the museum of immigration and diversity in Europe
Citizenship guru Sir Bernard Crick suggests every schoolchild in England should visit this rarely opened, awesome museum which goes to the heart of who we are today. It is specially opened to school groups by appointment only and is a place where attitudes can be challenged and developed.
