NO SOFT TOUCH: UKIP Express “Concern” Over Migrant Surge
Paul Oakley, UKIPs Immigration Spokesman, has expressed “concern” following the news that over 100 migrants have been found off the coast of Britain in dinghies trying to enter the country illegally. Four of those rescued were found to be children and the majority claimed to be Iranians. Mr Oakely said that this news is greatly concerning and that any migrants found should be “treated humanely” and returned to the safety of France as soon as possible.
He continued to say that while Britain is a “welcoming nation” we also “we cannot send the message that we are a soft touch on illegal and dangerous entry into our country.” Refusing to return the migrants would only encourage more to attempt the crossing: “The Strait of Dover is the busiest shipping route in the world and if the route is not closed then deaths are inevitable; not only of migrants themselves but quite possibly of the crews of our coastguard and rescue ships as well.”
Sajid Javid should strengthen the UK’s Border Force and send a clear message that Britain will not tolerate migrants risking their lives and the lives of others by trying to enter the country illegally Mr Oakley said.
