UK migration crisis

The migration crisis in the UK is out of control, Home Secretary Suella Braverman told The Sun.

She pointed out that more than 30,000 people have arrived on British Channel shores this year, ten times more than in 2018. One of the reasons, she said, was the Modern Slavery Act passed by former Prime Minister Theresa May.

"Now the majority of people, which is about 80%, coming here from Albania in small boats, claim to be victims of modern slavery and abuse of the law," Braverman said. Also, the minister added that migrants with criminal records for paedophilia, murder, drug trafficking recall the law when they are trying to be deported.

Furthermore, Suella Braverman complained that too many low-skilled workers are coming to the UK, as well as students who bring their relatives, who often refuse to work. This situation is not conducive to economic growth," she said.

"We need people with high skills, we need people with technical qualifications. What we don't want is a constant flow of cheap foreign labour," she said.

She vowed to take serious measures, including amending the Modern Slavery Act to reduce the flow of migrants.

It is worth noting that in July this year TV channel Sky News reported that almost 13 thousand migrants came to the UK by boat in six months.

Since June, the UK has started expelling illegal migrants to Rwanda. Under the deal, the country provides accommodation and training opportunities in exchange for an upfront payment of £120m. There, the migrants will wait for their asylum applications to be processed in the UK.

Also, in April that year, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the authorities intended to combat illegal migration. At the same time, it was noted that he intended to destroy the business of smugglers.

Former Home Secretary Priti Sushil Patel cited the fact that the EU has no guards at the borders as the cause of the migration crisis last year.
