June 23, 2016 is the day that the British will vote to remain in the European Union or withdraw from this organization. The question on the ballot reads “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” The polls indicate that the race will be close. The anti-union party, the Leave, insists that Britain’s economy will improve without the rules and regulations that the EU imposes on its members. On the other side, the Remains believe that remaining in the EU will improve the economy. The question of immigration also plays a crucial role in this referendum.
