Welcome to the UK! If you evade customs and enter the country illegally, we will put you up in 5 star hotels and pay you £35k per year!!! Who wouldn’t want to flee here?
Really, this an unacceptable situation. We desperately need an EU-wide plan to ensure border security, it is completely unacceptable that illegal immigrants are reaching France in the first place, without first being stopped!
In addition, EU nations need to be doing more to ensure the stabilization, security and economic prosperity of the countries from which illegal migrants are fleeing. Unless we resolve the issues at the root of this crisis, it will only worsen.
Now please don’t get me wrong… I have always sympathised with genuine asylum seekers and directly helped many over the years, but seriously this country has lost the plot!
Illegal immigrants are immigrants who have broken the law by entering the country illegally.
Now, where people are genuinely fleeing for their lives, this is understandable. But that is not always the case… Many are economic migrants who wouldn’t be granted visas any other way. Should we be treating these people better than our own citizens?
If this situation continues, it will undoubtedly cause and increase friction between British Citizens and immigrants, that is very likely to spill over and cause trouble for people already settled here, including those who’ve used legal channels and are naturalised British Citizens.
We must ensure we secure our borders and know who is entering or leaving the country. We cannot help anyone, when the institutions, infrastructure and communal harmony of our own country are put under so much pressure they begin to fall apart.
