Labour Rattled As Priti Patel Tells The Truth About Illegal Migration

Labour’s top pro illegal migration figures, Shami Chakrabarti and David Blunkett, have expressed outrage at Priti Patel’s statement saying that the majority of illegal migrants are young healthy men and that “70% of individuals on small boats are single men who are effectively economic migrants”.

Home Secretary simply pointed out that those travelling from France – a safe country – are not fleeing a disaster zone.

The official figures from Home Office confirmed that in 2020, 87% of people from France illegally entering the UK on small boats were men, and 74% of them were young adults.

This fact did not stop Labour peers from attacking Britain’s right to defend her borders.
