More Illegals Have Landed in UK in September Than Whole of 2019
Tuesday’s landings of 393 illegal aliens on English shores made September hit a milestone in migrant arrivals that exceeded the whole of last year. So far in 2020, nearly 7,000 third world migrants have illegally crossed the English Channel from France into British territory on small boats. September 2nd saw the highest daily arrivals, with 416 illegals landing.
Reports say that 1,823 migrants arrived in 2019, and on Wednesday it was reported that for September 2020 alone there had been at least 1,880, with days still to go before the end of the month. According to government figures, 2018 only saw a combined 297 interceptions in British waters and landings on English beaches.
French authorities are reportedly blocking only around 20 per cent of boats that leave their shores, despite the British having paid France some £100 million in the past five years to stop the flow.
So great are the numbers landing, that two former military bases have been allocated for housing the illegals, with the first of up to 431 arriving in Folkestone, Kent, this week. The second base in Wales is set to house to some 250.
The numbers of landings are likely much higher than the government reports, however. Not only does the Home Office refuse to include the numbers of alleged child migrants landing, but an untold number of migrants arrive and disappear without coming into contact with the British authorities, clearly having no intention of claiming asylum.
