Why do countries like UK and US allow immigrants in such numbers when they are clearly uncomfortable with it?

Wish I could hear this from the people who live there. The illegal people in US and UK, which I get people don't want them. Then there are immigrants themselves (like refugees), who I guess people don't want in their country either.

So the thing I don't get from Boris Johnson or Donald Trump (and their supporters) is why don't they close the gates for immigrants?

I guess I don't understand why the countries take in immigration applications and then keep talking about how it troubles them and how they feel out of home in their own country so on and so forth.
