This morning the governments Care Minister, Helen Whately, made a comment on the situation in the English Channel which she labelled as an “unacceptable situation.
Helen said: “We do have an unacceptable situation of many migrants coming across the Channel at the moment.
“It’s also a dangerous route, there’s a real risk to life for those coming across, it’s obviously a form of illegal immigration, it’s not the right way to come to the United Kingdom.
“So, we are taking action.
“The Home Secretary is determined to take action to make sure that this isn’t a viable route to the UK and my colleague and Home Office minister, Chris Philp will be meeting the French this week to talk about working together to stop this transit.”
Ms Whately added: “The important thing is we work together with the French to stop this flow of migrants.
“Its not a safe way for them to try and get here, it’s incredibly dangerous, it also means money is going to people smugglers, so it absolutely needs to stop.”
It was reported that this weekend saw a massive 677 illegal migrants be brought in to Britain by British authorities. The 677 figure is only the illegal migrants we know of. Many sightings were reported along the southern coastal shore as migrant boats beached and then absconded.
Priti Patel has visited Dover today but didn’t make any comment to the press in regards to her trip.
