More than a thousand refugees fled from France to Great Britain via the English Channel. The movement of refugees increases tensions between London and Brussels.
More immigrants than ever before have crossed the English Channel from France to Great Britain in one day. A total of 1,185 people, more than 1,000 for the first time, crossed the border on Thursday, according to the Interior Ministry in London on Friday. A spokesman called the number “unacceptable.” Photographs showed people, including women and small children, reaching the British coast near Dover in fully packed rubber boats. It is estimated that about 23,000 immigrants have already arrived in the country this year – more than twice as much as in 2020.
This increases the pressure on British Home Secretary Priti Patel. The Conservative politician has repeatedly called for an end to illegal immigration. The BBC quoted A source in the government accused the government of losing control of the situation off the coast of France. Lots of people are waiting there for the opportunity to go to Great Britain. London supports French sanctions equivalent to about மில்லியன் 63 million.
A total of 54 migrants who tried to cross the English Channel with small boats were rescued on Thursday, according to the French Maritime Province. The rescued, including two children, were taken to the ports of Calais, Dunkirk and Boulogne-sur-Mer. The two refugees, who were rescued from their kayaks, told the Gendermary of the other three refugees who went missing. However, all attempts to locate the trio at sea with the help of a helicopter failed.
After Brexit the British government introduced a strict immigration system. Home Minister Patel wants to make it more difficult for asylum seekers to apply for asylum. Preventing free movement is a Brexit promise made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives.
