Over 800 More Boat Migrants Land in England


Between Saturday and Monday, 806 illegal migrants successfully reached the UK after traversing the Channel in small boats from France, with 410 on Saturday, 102 on Sunday, and a further 294 migrants on Monday.

The weekend crossings mean that over 19,400 aliens have made the illegal journey to the beginning of the week since the start of the year.

According to sources from Dover, the Border Force refused to carry out operations on Monday due to inclement weather conditions, leaving the task of ferrying migrants ashore to the volunteer Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Earlier this month, Home Secretary Priti Patel announced that the government would start working with the armed forces in order to implement a “turn back the boats” approach and send the migrants back to France.

However, unsurprisingly, the government has yet to enact such a scheme.
