Why Accepting Illegal Immigrants Is Not Going To Help ThemCelebrities, social media 'influencers', woke idiots and far left political groups are creating a chorus of catawauling complaints about the deportation of illegal immigrants who are crossing The English Channel from France in increasing numbers. But will accepting them only encourage more to come and be exploited by people trafficking crime gangs? This article lifts the lit on the illegal immigrants racket.

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel, by her opposition to illegal immigrants, is actually actually defending those unfortunate people who have been conned by Organised Crime Networks (OCNs) into believing that if they undertake the dangerous crossing of the channel in inflatable boats, 21 miles (minimum) in a boat designed only for inshore use, of treacherous water with strong currents and rip tides, crossing the paths of huge passenger ferries and giant oil tankers and container ships that are among the constant traffic in one of the world’s busiest sea routes, they will be welcomed into Britain as “Asylum Seekers.”
The full legal definition of qualification for political asylum is quite simple and it does not include economic migrants. An asylum seeker is: "a person who, from fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, social group, or political opinion, has crossed an international frontier into a country in which he or she hopes to be granted refugee status," (The Free Dictionary & Collins English Dictionary )
Asylum does not include refugees fleeing war or famine who hope to be able to return to their homeland when the situation improves, nor does it include those leaving impoverished countries and economic basket cases "in search of a better life," to use a phrase loved by the hand wringers of the virtue signalling left.
The people who for years have been crossing the Mediterranean and now crossing the even more hazardous English Channel in small, inflatable rafts are not asylum seekers, they are victims of an organised and highly profitable criminal operation run by trans - national Organised Crime Networks.
The way the OCNs Asylum scam works is uneducated people from poor nations, nations where the levels of poverty as unimaginable to we British, families, and sometimes whole villages will take on a massive (by their standards) debt to send someone to Britain (“A wonderful country where you will be welcomed, given a job and a home and treated like a King.”) Often the means of paying off this loan is through indentured labour, a form of slavery because the contract is binding on the worker but not the employer, but people are persuaded to accept this because the person sent to Britain (or any other developed nation,) will be making so much they will be able send so much money home the whole family will live on it.
Those people who do make it to Britain find themselves completely controlled by employers, usually casual labour agencies with links to the OCNs in their homeland. The passports of those who have them are taken, and they are forced to live in crowded and unhygienic conditions, working long hours for less than the legal minimum wage. Most of what they earn is taken by their bosses for food, rent and transport, and police raids have discovered the “home” they have been given is a matress on the floor of a bedroom in an ordinary house, a room they may share with up to ten other asylum seekers.
Why don’t they go to the authorities? you ask.
It’s simple. The criminal gangs that run the recruiting side of the scam back in the homelands have a hold over the asylum seekers families, and if anyone tries to escape from their miserable existence by legally seeking asylum, retribution will be swift and brutal and delivered on parents, siblings, cousins, sometimes ever husbands, wives and children.
So the people saying in the name of humanity we must welcome these people are not helping the pathetic individuals crossing the channel in rubber boats, they are helping the ruthless gangs whose exploitation of poorly educated people starts far away in places where we cannot help those who will be tortured, murdered or enslaved if do - gooders in the west start liberating the illegal immigrants from the criminals who control them.
