Although they do make clear there is a lot of uncertainty but it assumes we reach a deal on Brexit and enter the transition period (i.e for the next two years we'll still be operating under the single market).

So that projection is based on our still following EU rules, making contributions and accepting freedom of movement. Sounds like BINO to me.
Logical conclusion being that if we keep doing all the above we will enjoy good growth.

The fact that not everyone born here isn't a net contributor isn't relevant with regards to immigrants coming here and doing the same thing!

I think the main resentment is that people see some immigrants as coming here and taking away resources; by definition they will be foreign, but that isn't the problem, it's them moving over here that is.

I think that UKIP & Leave gained a lot of votes due to this. These voters aren't the types that would ever consider voting for the BNP etc as they don't consider themselves as racist, but have had enough of unfettered immigration.

Your last point has some merit as both have contributed to overstretching public services.
