(ZEROHEDGE) – 2021 has seen an unprecedented surge in migrants fleeing the devastating beauty, culture, and freedom of France, to take the extremely perilous journey across the English Channel to make their future homes in England's green-and-pleasant (and welfare-heavy) land.
A recent survey found that most Britons support tougher measures on people entering the country illegally. In fact, 61% believed that a migrant who comes to the U.K. from a 'safe country' (for example France) shouldn't be allowed to stay in the U.K. as an asylum seeker. Of course, the U.K.'s plans to stop people entering the country have been criticised by charities including Refugee Action, which has called them "extreme and nasty".
And still they come, despite U.K. Home Secretary Priti Patel providing funding for French officials to "respond by posting more security forces further up the coast, installing and utilising the latest surveillance equipment throughout northern France," and Brexit has no effect at all (in fact it's got worse).
