Boris gets tough: If you’re an illegal migrant ‘we will send you back’


Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned migrants trying to cross the Channel in boats that Britain will send them back to Europe.

The Prime Minister has warned:

“You may think the weather looks great but it is a very dangerous thing to do.”

“We will send you back.

“The UK should not be regarded as a place where you can automatically come to break the law by seeking to arrive illegally.

“If you come illegally you are an illegal immigrant and I’m afraid the law will treat you as such.”

Decent weather over the bank holiday has sparked fears even more migrants might try and make the perilous crossing in small boats across the Channel onto British shores. More than 9000 people, including at least 80 children, have crossed the Channel in small boats this year.

A Home Office spokesperson added:

“Crossing the Channel in a small boat is a huge risk. The criminal gangs who perpetuate this are ruthless and do not care about loss of life.

“We have three Border Force cutters in the Channel and a joint action plan with France in place, including a coordination centre in Calais which assists with preventing illegal attempts to cross the border.

“We continue to monitor the ongoing situation and are working closely at all levels with French authorities on the issue. The Home Secretary will raise this issue with her French counterpart in the coming days.”

65 people who arrived illegally in the UK have already been returned to Europe this year with more currently being processed.

The Nationality and Borders Bill is the cornerstone of the government’s New Plan for Immigration, delivering the most comprehensive reform in decades to fix the broken asylum system.

The bill – and the wider plan – has 3 key objectives:

  1. To make the system fairer and more effective so that we can better protect and support those in genuine need of asylum.
  2. To deter illegal entry into the UK breaking the business model of criminal trafficking networks and saving lives.
  3. To remove from the UK those with no right to be here.

The introduction of the bill was preceded by a consultation, which the government has carefully considered. The government will publish its response in due course. For more information click here.


  1. Start deporting all from hotel’s ! They all arrived illegally, so do what you said you would 2 years ago .no more border farce taxi ,push them back to France immediately.this country is overflowing with freeloaders that hate everything about our values and laws . the only thing they like is free life and complaining that they only receive 4* instead of 5 !!

  2. Start deportations immediately and no more taxi across the channel by border farce ! Do what you said you would 2 years ago ! It’s how you got voted in . British people are sick of being made fools of by this illegal invasion .

  3. Stop legal aid just do it put them in barracks if they set fire to them just tell them to clean it up and get on with it.

  4. What does illegal actually mean? How long will it take to prove? Define this please, I want to see hard facts about numbers being sent back. That’s if you get them before they vanish from hotels!!! Nice headline don’t believe it!!

  5. If new laws are needed in order to return illegals then why haven’t these new laws been put in place before now? Stop dragging your heels and get it sorted!

  6. Send them all back to Europe if that is the route they come from, they are safe when over there so why must they come here. Is it because they get laptops in hotels or given a house and benefits, whilst I’m being told I have to work work and work and can’t get my pension till I’m ready to die.

  7. Boris said that 2years ago, and nothing happened they just kept coming.
    Priti Patel was the same all talk ,give more money to France and then more money and France did nothing but help the migrant into British waters 💦
