Migrant crossings in English Channel increase

More than 2,000 migrants have made the journey across the English Channel this year which is three times higher than last year’s figures.

“These are people who have already been through terrible things … seeing them having to risk their lives like this,” Care4Calais Founder Clare Moseley said.

“They try to deter them, but the deterrents don’t work because the things that they are running from don’t go away, and they simply can’t go back”.

The United Kingdom government has recently announced changes to the asylum process, which will make it very hard for people who have paid a people smuggler or come through a ‘safe country’ to claim asylum.
