Report after report about illegal Muslim migrants flooding into the UK via the English Channel come in on a near-daily basis, with no end in sight. Nearly a thousand more have entered Britain since the start of the new year.
All eyes are now on Boris Johnson, who was said to be deploying the military to stop the enduring free-for-all. But his move wasn’t prompted by concern for national security, safety or the economic concerns. Nothing like that prods Johnson to do anything. It’s to save his own political skin, because his approval levels are bottoming out.
“Nearly 1,000 migrants have arrived in UK ALREADY this year after 168 landed in Dover on six boats yesterday including one that came perilously close to P&O ferry,” by James Robinson, MailOnline, January 19, 2022:
A total of 168 migrants crossed the English Channel yesterday, bringing the number of small boat arrivals in the UK to almost 1,000 so far this year.
Six boats were intercepted by Border Force officials and brought to the Port of Dover on Tuesday, according to the Home Office.
One small boat carrying dozens of people, including children, came perilously close to a P&O ferry while making the dangerous journey across the Channel – the world’s busiest shipping lane.
Meanwhile, French authorities intercepted three further crossings involving 126 people.
And this morning 25 people were escorted into the Port of Dover on board a Border Force vessel shortly before 9am.
The latest crossings bring the total number of migrants arriving in the UK by small boats to nearly 1,000 already this year.
Last year saw a record 28,381 people cross the Channel in small boats. But it was not until mid-February when the number of migrant crossings reached 1,000.
