There are 5,309,580 working age benefit claimants in the UK (as of 2015). Of those, 4,914,160 are from UK, 264,430 from countries outside the EU and 130,990 from EU countries.
There are 3,989,100 home grown UK claimants of family tax credits. 413,500 non-EU claimants and 302,300 EU claimants.
Using words like "uncontrolled" migration seems to imply that those from the EU are the worst offenders.
A small proportion of these benefits would be saved if the repatriation of EU migrants were to be enforced. Benefits for UK born is 92% of the total welfare budget, 5% of non-EU citizens and just 2.5% (those figures from 2014).
Jusr imagine if they rounded up all the Brits in Spain who were living on the black economy, living in Spain but not telling UK so they still claim pension credits and WFA by giving a son or daughter address in UK.
People getting all frothed up about things and the amount of housing, NHS access, benefits and welfare paid to those from both the UK and outside the EU are not going to change on Brexit.
DWP figures, by the way.
