More than 10,000 migrants have crossed the Channel into Britain illegally so far this year, double the amount compared to last year.

Even though illegal Channel migrants have been threatened with a one-way ticket to Rwanda if they sail to Britain by small boat, more than 10,000 migrants have entered the UK illegally without an end in sight.

More than 10,000 migrants have crossed the Channel into Britain illegally so far this year, double the amount compared to last year.

Though some of the current migrants have attempted suicide and hunger strikes over the threat of deportation being promoted by the government, according to official stats, the current figure is more than double the same time last year.

Former Brexit Party MEP Ben Habib told Talk TV: ‘If the aim of the Rwanda plan was to deter people coming across the Channel, it’s not actually working.

‘Since they announced it, we’ve had record numbers coming across. We’ve got to stop this movement of people illegally across the Channel.’

According to the Ministry of Defence, six boats carrying 139 illegal migrants made it to Britain on Thursday, bringing the total to more than 600 illegal making it to Britain this week. All have to be housed and fed at the taxpayer’s expense.

So far this year, 10,057 migrants have been taxied to Britain compared to 4,200 at the same time last year. Out of the 10,057, only 100 have been given deportation notices, with the first flight set to take off on the 14th of June.

The government are expecting a massive legal challenge from migrant charities, which will most likely derail the government’s attempt to deport the illegal migrants to Rwanda.
