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