Immigration lawyer Harjap Singh Bhangal questions Priti Patel’s plan to keep migrants offshore.

Immigration lawyer Harjap Singh Bhangal has said there had been a fall In those claiming asylum outside the UK. Yet, those coming to Britain by crossing the channel on a small boat has gone up.


Harjap Singh Bhangal said: “it’s a bit surprising that it comes [priti Patel’s migration plan] at a time when actually asylum seekers, the claim for asylum is actually going down, yet, channel crossings for some reason, seem to be going up.”

“So it’s something seems not right here it isn’t adding up as in, if people are getting through and they’re not getting caught because they’re not claiming asylum, then how will these centres actually deter them coming over?”
