With everything going on with the Brexit negotiations, it’s easy to forget the crisis that’s currently ongoing in the English Channel. Everyday extremely high numbers are coming to Britain illegal, and this is with the French supposedly guarding their borders. Yesterday over 80 people arrived in Britain illegally by crossing the English Channel.
Allegedly there’s talk that the French are holding off from regular border patrols as another way to twist the arm of Britain in the Brexit negotiations. We keep asking these questions, but what can actually be done to curb this rise in illegal immigration to Britain?
We’ve had the reasons why it’s difficult, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t another way to quash this crisis?. The Government does need to come out and tell us what going on while expressing option to remedy the problem. Sitting silent just isn’t the answer and it certainly won’t wash with the British public.
The total number into Britain has risen to well over 5000 illegal channel migrants so far this year that we know of. With each one arriving being fully accommodated in a hotel, food, wifi, and money being given to them. How can it be right to house those who come to Britain illegally when those on our streets, many who are ex-services not housed ahead of someone how has broken the law in Britain?
