HUGE NUMBER OF MIGRANTS CROSSING UK BORDERS BEFORE BREXIT
Human smugglers are advising immigrants that they should arrive in the United Kingdom before “the borders close down permanently” following Brexit, as reported by an Investigation by the BBC.
A large sum of individuals, claiming to be Iranian national, have come into British waters in vessels in the past few months. A private journalist discovered smuggling operations were being coordinated at makeshift campsites in northern France. Establishments said they planned to halt a recurrence of the Mediterranean crisis in which nearly 2,000 migrants sank earlier this year.
“When United Kingdom is out of EU, the borders will be close down for good,” a human trafficker spoke to a journalist impersonating as an Iranian citizen at a base camp in Dunkirk.
An Afghan national, told the reporter that he was part of a flopped attempt to enter into the United Kingdom on board a vessel with plenty others. “There is a haste,” he said. “Every person is gossiping about it, uttering we want to get in the UK as soon as possible in case the safety measures gets stricter.”
The United Kingdom is planned to leave the European Union on 29th March, 2019.
A smuggler, who stated that he had been a fisherman back in his country, was videoed by a unseen camera planning a trespassing. “A boat will cost £2,500 to £4,500,” he proclaimed. “I am taking couple of migrants with me, they paid cash. We get a boat and off we go.” British and French authorities have said the increase in trespassing is an outcome of “planned lawbreaking” and “mafia links”.
Not all vessels/boats that leaves and succeed in arriving in the United Kingdom, and a minimum of 28 immigrants have been stopped in French waters from 23 November. Migrants were “risking their lives every night here in Calais” stated by Pierre Henri Dumont, a Les Républicains politician in Calais. “We need to face the truth,” he said “The truth is, we cannot stop everyone.”
