Who says borders are closed due to the pandemic? 🧐
What a chaos in Europe, which seems paralyzed regarding the whole migration crisis.
– Border Force (UK) intercepted five small boats between 1am and 8am on Friday. 76 migrants were on board and taken to Dover where they were handed over to immigration officials.
There were 55 men and 21 women and they said they were Iraqi, Iranian, Yemini, Syrian and Kuwaiti. All of them were given a health check but they were not tested for coronavirus.
The news comes a week after another 73 migrants tried to make the crossing to Kent, prompting the Home Secretary Priti Patel to say she was “determined” to stop illegal Channel crossings, adding: “I will not stand by whilst malicious criminals prey on the vulnerable.”
* Really? They are illegal migrants attempting to illegally enter the UK. If one wants to send the right message, there are two parties involved here that need punished for their actions.
Nothing from Patel about deportations or the safety of UK citizens.
