UK madness: EU is not the only one with a deportation deficit.
These numbers are pathetic/embarrassing. Between January 2018 and June 30 2020, 4,613 illegals entered the country but only 429 were granted asylum or other humanitarian protection. Yet, only 231 were deported! That’s 231.
Moreover, since June, an additional 6,000 illegally entered the UK.
Where did they all go? Since they are not held in detention centres, they are on the run and roaming the UK freely. Perhaps he has been reading the V4 Report 😉 but Alp Mehmet, chairman of Migration Watch UK, summed up the situation accurately:
“Illegal Channel crossings have increased exponentially this year, not only because the Government has done little to discourage them but because they almost always prove successful…Most of those who reach the UK get to stay, very few are sent back….The immediate return of those making the attempt is the only way to deal with the problem. Abs-conding is rife and the removal rate of those with no right to be here is pitifully low. All of which is a boon to traffickers.”
But it gets worse. Left-wing celebrities apparently are migration experts in the UK.
37 out of 50 ‘convicted criminals’ due to be flown to Jamaica were granted reprieves after human rights lawyers lodged last-minute appeals. It followed pressure from Labour MPs and campaigning ‘celebrities’.
** Brexit was a positive, but it will not clean-up the mess in the UK without immediate action to deport the illegals back to their countries of origin.
So far, this has been a grand failure and that’s why more illegals keep coming. They know they will stay.
