British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that because of the English Channel, Britain is dependent on the French authorities.
He said on Wednesday that Britain is counting on France to fight illegal immigration Boris Johnson British Prime Minister in his speech in the Parliament of London.
“We depend a lot on what the French do,” the prime minister said. “However, we will use all possible tactics at our disposal to prevent migrants from crossing the English Channel.”
Due to favorable weather conditions, the number of attempts to cross over the crowded waterway between France and Great Britain has increased again in recent days.
According to Britain’s Home Office, 785 migrants crossed in small boats on Monday alone. The daily record was in August, when 828 illegal immigrants were counted.
A summary prepared by British media for the BBC’s Public Service shows that more than 13,000 illegal immigrants have arrived in the UK on this route since the start of the year.
According to a French politician, the crossing of migrants cannot be prevented because the police are simply unable to control the entire French coast.
Nothing can stop them.”
It was mentioned on BBC Radio 4 today Pierre-Henri Dumont Representative of the coastal city of Calais in the French National Assembly.
“We have to monitor 300 to 400 kilometers of the coastline day and night, and because of the length of the coast, it is almost impossible to stop a police officer every hundred metres,” Dumont declared. As he said, warmer weather is the main reason for more crossings, but there are a number of other reasons he thinks need to be addressed. One of the things is that immigrants are more likely to speak English and find it easier to find work in the UK, even though they are staying in the country illegally.
