Priti Boats Keep On Coming
This year has already shown a huge increase of illegal immigrants arriving in the UK via dinghy. The current figure of arrivals stands at 1,565 – three times higher than April last year. Priti Patel is failing.
This morning in Dover, 41 illegal immigrants were picked up mid Channel by the Border Force, there were five children and 36 adults spread over three separate dinghies (departed from Calais).
The five children were on the first boat ferried into the harbour at approximately 8AM, they were wearing lifejackets and accompanied by – what appeared to be – their guardians.
Shortly after, the second boat arrived with a group of six young men, all wearing lifejackets.
At around 10AM a Border Force vessel named ‘Speedwell’ brought another five men into harbour (as well as the dinghy they used to attempt crossing the English Channel).
“People smugglers are putting lives at risk by facilitating these dangerous journeys. We are working closely with our partners in France to stop migrants from leaving French beaches. And attempted crossings involving more than 100 people were stopped overnight and this morning.”
