Cross Channel Migrant Issue

I believe they have been released on bail into the care of the border force.
Of course precedence was set by the Afghan who hijacked an airliner and after surrendering to THEM took HMG to court and were allowed to stay indefinitely.
It's costing around £10k and taking six years for my missus to attain the same status, going the legal route.

Dontya just love it?
 
Which makes the present policy... ‘rewarding illegal entry.’

Hardly a policy that discourages them, or the actions of the various EU countries who facilitate illegal immigrants passage through their countries en-route to the UK. Our friendly neighbours the French who so kindly escort them to our waters, which they seem to think they own anyway.
 
If you apply for asylum you are seeking refugee status; that is irrespective of how you got to the UK, under the law as it stands.

'An Albanian man and woman resident in the UK have been sentenced for setting up a fake charity and using it to traffic immigrants to work in cannabis farms, according to reports in the British media.

'Pranvera Smith and Flamur Daka fraudulently secured a GBP 100,000 Lottery Fund grant to set up a bogus charity called Freedom to Stay. They then charged desperate immigrants around GBP 1000 each which they said was to secure benefits and housing, as well as filing asylum applications. These immigrants would have already paid up to GBP 10,000 for passage from Albania to the UK.

'The charity said it was a non-profit group that helped Albanian asylum seekers navigate the system upon arrival.

'The authorities found that they were smuggling around 30 people a month into the country and made around GBP 130,000 from their activities.

'During the investigation, it was discovered that they had kept the grant they received and were making more money from desperate immigrants. Upon arrival, the immigrants ended up working below the legal minimum wage in car washes or being forced to work on cannabis farms.

'The pair had been trafficking people from Albania in trucks via Ghent.

'Authorities said that in the first months of 2020, the pair trafficked more than 130 victims.

'Daka and Smith were arrested and charged with conspiracy to breach UK immigration law. Smith was also charged with fraud and supplying cannabis. Daka was also charged with supplying cocaine. They both received jail terms- five years and four months and four years respectively.'

As least they weren't importing heroin

That may be so, but that does not stop people seeking asylum in the UK.

What it does do - Is prove that the UN 1951 Convention is a bag of sh!te, and needs canned.

Furthermore - You should also read the Dublin Regulations regarding the EU, especially as the thread concerns cross channel migrants.

Which the ECJ reopened for business in July 2017.

Start issuing massive fines to Eurotunnel / Transport companies / haulage companies / ferry companies / tour companies for every Illegal caught - Fines will end when your Government starts to take them back.

This would be very negative for trade and so on, however . . . knocking up ALL the directors of relevant freight and shipping companies at three in the morning EVERY time their commercial resources are used to bring illegals in to the country might improve security procedures on the vehicles used and then, by simple economic avoidance of the most risky ports by the hauliers (already done, slightly), improve the protection around ports and then, by political complaints by port and local-authorities, improve national policy in the countries at the other end of the shipping routes (France, Belgium, other countries for air-travel). Alternatively, can we ask the French Ambassador to provide an individual explanation for each of the people fleeing his, apparently, dangerous and inhumane country?

How would you do that with directors in France, Belgium and Holland where most of the cross channel migrants are coming from ?

The majority of significant shipping companies are either UK registered companies or have UK subsidiaries with local management and staff. So delete 'director' and insert 'most senior director / management level available'. Where no such person exists (ie. companies with little cross-channel capacity), block the company's vehicles as no longer recognised within the TIR scheme, or whatever is used these days -- there must be a paperwork option available for 'bad' hauliers.

Germany's Merkel urges European border reform after terrorist attacks.

BERLIN, Nov 10 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it was urgently necessary for Europe to reform the open-border Schengen area in light of recent terrorist attacks.


"I want to mention the entry-exit system in the Schengen area, which should be ready in 2022," she said after a meeting with other European leaders on Tuesday.

"It is vitally necessary to know who comes in and who leaves the Schengen area."

And yet they try to come to racist Britain, which obviously isn't safe as it's full up with racists
 
Well done to French plod; just a shame it took a year to accumulate enough evidence to act on it.

'A crime gang which made millions smuggling migrants into Britain has been taken down after a year-long investigation, French police say. The group, known as the Pierrefitte connection, made between €1.5m (£1.3m) and €3m (£2.7m) by smuggling people into trucks bound for the UK.

'French police spent a year monitoring the gang closely and had bugged a bar in the Paris suburbs where the criminals allegedly met to discuss their plans. Seven people were arrested in a series of raids earlier this month, ending the criminal gang's operations.

'Supt Jean Arvieu, of the French Border Police, said the group operated at night and would often target migrants living in squats in Paris and the surrounding area. Many of them were men aged between 20 and 34, he said. "During one year of investigation we could count about 500 to 1,000 passages or attempts to cross the Channel," Mr Arvieu added.'
