The new research contradicts claims made by former home secretary Priti Patel, who launched the scheme to deter people crossing the Channel in small boats, saying they were “not genuine asylum seekers” and were “elbowing out the women and children, who are at risk and fleeing persecution”.
It doesn't do anything of the sort. So what if they are married? Does no-one think that might be a ploy to prevent removal?
Beth Gardiner-Smith, spokesperson for Together With Refugees and chief executive of Safe Passage, said: “This scheme is not just morally wrong; it’s expensive and unworkable. If our government were serious about tackling smuggling and saving lives at sea, they would scrap this plan and urgently expand safe routes for refugees.”
Clare Moseley, founder of Care4Calais, said: “This brutal policy will not end small boat crossings, it won’t stop people smugglers and it won’t keep refugees safe. There is a kinder and more effective option: give safe passage to refugees in Calais.”
There you go, folks! Worried about being burgled? Just leave your front door open!
Isn't it about time we asked the UN to look into the reasons behind so many people fleeing France?ReplyDelete
I'm assuming that the two organisations mentioned that are promoting illegal immigration are charities.ReplyDelete
I wonder by how much are they being funded by taxpayers money?
I wish the rats in government would withdraw from the UN compact on migration and stop funding these charities that are actively destroying our country.
Never mind, they can still lie their way to collecting benefits:ReplyDelete
The UN are bleeding useless and are in on it. See their Replacement Migration policies which they claim are a "solution to declining and ageing populations". The financing of those charities needs to be investigated. What is the betting some notorious billionaire "philanthropist" has donated.ReplyDelete
