Ten People Are Arrested After Hundreds of Anti-Immigration Protesters Clashed With Police in Dover

dover

Ten people have been arrested during clashes between anti-immigration protesters and police in Dover on Saturday after a record 409 desperate asylum seekers crossed the Channel in one day this week.

Hundreds of campaigners were confronted by groups of pro-migrant protesters in a counter-demonstration following the arrival of 5,600 refugees in small boats this year.

The protest had blocked the A20 dual carriageway, the main route in and out of the port, which has since been reopened.

Rival protests took place in the Kent town just days after a record 416 migrants made it to the UK after crossing the English Channel.

Farage Warns: Migrant Surge on English Channel “Even Worse Than We Thought”

farage

Brexit architect Nigel Farage has warned that the truth about a record-setting surge of illegal migrants pouring across the English Channel is “even worse that we thought.”

At least 550 illegal aliens have reportedly landed on British shores since the start of the coronavirus lockdown in the U.K. on March 23.

Those are only the ‘official figures,’ and despite the number of migrants crossing the Channel in April setting a new one-month record, the true total is likely even higher.

“I think what’s happening, is boats are coming in here… under cover of darkness, and they’re able to not just unload the crew, but get the boats off on trailers, as well,” Farage said during a report from the beach at Pett Level, England.

More than 100 illegal migrants have been fetched from the English Channel by U.K. authorities since Friday, despite strict coronavirus lockdowns in both England and France.

At least 476 migrants have reached the U.K. via the Channel in April, the most on record in a single month, according to the Daily Mail.

Following a massive search-and-rescue mission involving Border Force vessels, a helicopter, and lifeboats, 13 migrants were taken to Dover on Monday, bringing the number of illegal crossers to at least 124 since the start of the weekend.

U.K. authorities intercepted 86 migrants illegally crossing the English Channel during a record-setting day, as two more boatloads were captured shortly after, according to reports.

Dozens of migrants from at least eight different countries were apprehended by border agents on Tuesday, either aboard small boats or shortly after disembarking onto English soil.

“Two groups of migrants, made up of Iranians, Iraqis and Turks made it to beaches in East Sussex without being intercepted at sea. They were eventually detained on land,” the Telegraph reports.

Migrants crossing the English Channel were apprehended by UK Border Force for the fourth day in a row, as British media reports some are simply calling the police from their boats for pick-up.

A small boat carrying nine Iranian men was met by lifeboat crews off the coast of Kent, bringing the total number of migrants crossing the Channel to 44 in the last four days, the Press Association reports.

All of the men were brought to Dover and inspected by paramedics. Eight were referred to immigration authorities and another was arrested under suspicion of facilitating illegal entry to the UK.
