THE CRISIS CONTINUES: 23 Illegal Migrants Detained In Kent On Boxing Day

  • 5.3K

Border Force officers detained some 23 migrants on the coasts of Kent on Boxing Day, with a further 11 migrants being caught in France.

The three boats arriving in the UK, which contained at least 14 Iranians and at least three children, arrived through the night and early morning of Boxing Day on various beaches in Kent.

RNLI teams were called to Sandgate, Folkstone at around 00:45 amid reports of a “craft off the beach at Sandgate”, where nine migrants were found having got off their boat onto the beach.

“The people on the boat had got on the beach, but they were met by Border Force and Kent Police,” Charlie Davies, operations manager of Littlestone-on-Sea RNLI, said.

Border Force officers detained the one woman, five men, two boys and a girl who had arrived illegally in the boat and proceeded to process them according to UK immigration law.

Then at 8:30am, a further six Iranian migrants were caught at Shakespeare beach in Dover, where they were also detained by Border Force officers.

Just 15 minutes later, at 8:45am, another eight Iranian migrants, all men, were caught in Dover in an inflatable boat, before also being detained by border police.

These latest arrivals mark one of the worst days in recent months for illegal migrants landing on Britain’s shores, workings fears that a second wave of Europe’s migrant crisis is about to begin.

Explaining how Britain should tackle the incoming migration crisis, UKIP’s Paul Oakley told Kipper Central: “Migrants are required by the Dublin III Regulation to make any application for asylum in the first EU country they arrive in. “Asylum shopping” is not acceptable.

The party’s immigration spokesman continued: “As and when they are intercepted, either in the Channel itself or on the shores of Kent, they should be returned to France immediately and informed that every such attempt to seek asylum in the UK will be rejected automatically.

“The message will soon spread and the flow will be staunched.”

    What a weak pathetic government and immigration system we have, for God’s sake get a grip and stop this lunacy.

    It is clear that the English Channel is not the boundary that it once was, and that there are people who are prepared to risk their lives, and the lives of others, crossing one of the most busy shipping lanes in the world.
    Our Boarder Force and RNLI are doing a great job, but it is clear that we do not have anywhere near enough ships, boats and crew to deal with this, and the RNLI is financed by the public with excellent crews, all being volunteers. URGENT ATTENTION PLEASE ! This has to be a priority action for Government.

    Then the saga continues, they were given a bed for the night followed by emergency accommodation. Next thing will be to the front of the housing queue pushing genuine cases down the list. Welcome to talk tough easy touch Britain where the Establishment shafts the hard working taxpayer t gave you o fund their ego’s.
    Am I bitter and twisted? whatever gave you that idea.

  4. StuartJ says:

    Of course, these are the ones that we know about. This can’t just be a recent new trend, how long has this really been going on for and how many have already entered the country illegally this way?

  5. Chris FAREY says:

    How come Kipper is suddenly calling these illegal migrants, migrants? What happened to the ‘illegal’ bit? Or are you too kow-towing to the liberal line central to the PC narrative?

  6. Carol says:

    And wait until they are placed in an immigration detention centre and start bleating about women being pregnant, it’s not right to keep chldren in jail, left them live in the community while they raise countless appeals against being removed blah blah blah. Bleeding heart hand wringing brigade out in force. All these people shoud be returned on the next boat , they are not refugees. Don’t risk our RNLI lifeboatmen and women’s lives for these illegal immgrants. Push them back towards France – put in a hard barder with gunboats.

  7. Aelfred says:

    They are illegals therefore criminals. In Australia as far as I know, I don’t know if that still applies there , that if a child is born to illegals that child is not classed as citizen. Is that the same here? it should be. They should be sent back to France soon as they arrive here. Contrary to T.V. shows promote we have no border or sea border patrol of any notice. What we do have obeys EU dictate, which is all for illegal/criminal gangs to arrive here and elswhere.

  8. Anthony Taylor says:

    Clearly the ‘SMUG’ French are aiding and abetting this activity, by virtue of the fact that they are allowing the illegals to depart their shores.

    With the availability of ‘modern’ techniques and equipment, it is not beyond the ‘Wit of Man’ to stop this activity .

    Intercept these transgressors, mid channel and return them to within the 12 mile limit of the French coast, do it once , do it twice, Do it a THOUSAND times, if that is what it takes .

    WE are NOT responsible for them.

    Countries have laws, and ‘ do gooders’ LIKE IT OR NOT, those Laws are there for the EXPRESS PURPOSE of ENSURING the SAFETY of their NATIONALS and LEGAL RESIDENTS!

  9. John Rutherford says:

    Why does border force have its own ships? Its the job of the Navy to protect the coastline. They should have more small patrol vessels. Maybe not as glamorous as cruising round the world in state of the art vessels but more useful. We need these ships to protect our fisheries from illegal EU fishing and they should be armed with lethal and non lethal weapons. The BBC and in particular its world service needs to be closed down. BBC propaganda and its links to anti Iranian spying is making the UK destination of choice for migrants
