Sensationally, a Tory MP said that illegal immigrants to the UK had voiced their dissatisfaction with the condition of the educational system. Stoke-on- According to Stoke-on-Trent North MP Jonathan Gullis, local schools’ Ofsted scores were criticised by asylum seekers while they were waiting for their claims to be processed.
He made the controversial remarks while attempting to push a new bill into Parliament that would have allowed the UK to disregard decisions issued by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
After legal action was launched via the ECHR to prevent immigrants from being sent back to the African country, Britain’s asylum relationship with Rwanda is presently on hold. Mr. Gullis said on LBC radio: “We have got this deal with Rwanda in place, it would be good to enact it.
“We have got people in hotels in places like Stoke on Trent who council officials are telling me are studying for their PhD at Queen Mary’s University, and when they were told which school their children were going to go to, they complained about that school’s Ofsted rating.
“These are not people coming over here fleeing war, these are economic migrants who are taking advantage of our system, and we need to enforce it.”
Due to a delay in the processing of asylum requests, individuals entering the UK illegally are presently staying in hotels all around the nation.
According to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, excess military facilities, abandoned summer camps, and student housing would be used in place of hotels to shelter migrants.
The Asylum Seekers (Removal to Safe Countries) Bill introduced by Mr. Gullis was defeated in the first round of the legislative process by a vote of 188 to 69.
On the same day that it was put to a vote in the House of Commons, four migrants perished trying to cross the English Channel.
Early Wednesday morning, a boat trying to undertake the perilous trek overturned. 43 individuals were rescued during the operation, more than 30 of them were hauled from the water.
Official government statement: “The global migration crisis is causing an unprecedented strain on our asylum system.”
“Nobody should put their lives at risk by taking dangerous and illegal journeys.”
“We will go further and faster to tackle those gaming the system, using every tool at our disposal to deter illegal migration, disrupt the business model of people smugglers and relocate to Rwanda those with no right to be in the UK.”
Suella Braverman, the home secretary, expressed her “deep regret” at the deaths and said the senseless waste of life was evidence of why it was so crucial to control Channel crossings.
Yesterday, she stated: “These are the days that we dread. Crossing the Channel in unseaworthy vessels is a lethally dangerous endeavour.
“It is for this reason, above all, that we are working so hard to destroy the business model of the people smugglers – evil, organised criminals who treat human beings as cargo.
“This morning’s tragedy, like the loss of 27 people on one November day last year, is the most sobering reminder possible of why we have to end these crossings.”
According to government statistics, more over 44,000 individuals have made the perilous trek this year.
