Illegal migrants situation cannot be allowed to continue

Date published: 17 August 2020


Editor,

Earlier this month I started my Investigative tour of the UK, visiting the North West, and was delighted by the warm reception and support that I received from the people I met.

My investigations are to see what impact illegal migrants are having on people who live in the areas where these people are being housed, such as in Hoylake, Wirral - at the Holiday Express Inn, which is now closed to the public - as is the same for hotels in other parts of the country.

Over 4,000 migrants have entered the country since the beginning of the year (twice that of the previous year), making the dangerous crossing in rubber boats and paying thousands to people traffickers to do so.

Many are young single men who I suspect as being economic migrants.

The Home Secretary keeps saying that she takes this seriously and will crack down on the matter but to date, nothing has happened other than the Border Force acting as a free taxi service to the migrants.

So much for the Government taking back control now that we have left the EU

They have awarded a contract to Serco worth billions of pounds over the next 10 years to house, feed and manage the migrant issue, the cost being picked up by the taxpayer.

The situation that I have uncovered cannot be allowed to continue, especially with the coronavirus threat.

It must be stopped, and now.
