Default Illegal Migrants French boats entering Dover & Kent

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a8631926.html


[UK Border officials have detained
17 apparent migrants – 14 men and three children
– claiming to be Iranian after a fishing boat,
reportedly stolen in France,
arrived in Dover overnight.]

[Dover MP Charlie Elphicke
claimed such arrivals were
“a growing problem” and
added the Home Office “must not turn a blind eye”.]

Send them back to France, let the French prosecute them for theft.
Poor fisherman having his boat thieved.

Turn them back around then? It doesn't matter if they're Iranian or not, France is a safe country, they have no reason to illegally break into the UK from there.

14 men and 3 children.

They need to be returned to the first safe country they landed in.

[Twenty-three migrants have been rescued from boats in three separate incidents in the English Channel.
Lifeboats and a coastguard helicopter were involved in the interception of a boat carrying 13 people two miles from Walmer at about 04:30 GMT.
A lifeboat later spotted a rowing boat occupied by two people about eight miles from Dover.]

Why even rescue them? A few drownings would discourage others from trying it.

[A group of migrants are being treated for
hypothermia after being rescued from
the English Channel amid increasing
concerns about the number of people
attempting the perilous crossing.
Two separate groups were picked
up on Friday, totalling 12 people.]

https://news.sky.com/story/warning-o...rants-11593178

The MP for Kent says the Iranians
are paying £30,000, to Criminal Gangs
And the the small boats are dropped
into the water from bigger boats in
the the dead of night, a mile or two from the Kent coast.

He wants more Navy Boats catching the Criminal Gangs
before they drop off the small boats.
(Ref on BBCnewsHD 20 mins ago)

What I never understand is why they go to Dover rather than a more obscure port, if you want to sneak into a party, you go through the side gate rather than knocking on the front door surely?

Sure a few could.
But is costing our taxes
as many vanish into the UK
doing not taxed illegal work.
