Over 3,000 Illegal Migrants Have Reached the UK in Small Boats This Year

Over 150 more boat migrants were brought ashore at Dover yesterday, bringing the total number of migrants illegally crossing the English channel this year to more than 3,000, a new record.

On Tuesday, 159 illegal migrants, including small children, aboard 13 small vessels were intercepted while they were attempting to cross the English Channel.

The migrants, who claimed to be Kuwaiti, Iranian, Syrian, Palestinian, Yemeni, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Afghan, Libyan, Sudanese, Moroccan, Turkish and Chad nationals, were brought ashore by the British Border Force at the port of Dover in Kent, according to the BBC.

A spokesman for the Home Office said: “Of the 159 people who arrived, 136 were male and 23 female.”

The Home Office did not reveal how many of the illegal migrants were children, as it has stopped publishing the figures of small children arriving by boat over the Channel.
