More than 3,000 migrants arrived in the UK in June across the English Channel

Over 3,000 migrants arrived in the UK in June across the English Channel by boat, a record figure for the first half of this year.


In just the first six months, 12.7 thousand migrants sailed to the UK by boat. On average, there were 33 people on board each boat.


According to British law, the government can send illegal immigrants to any safe state through which their route ran. Provided that this country agrees to accept them. To expel migrants, London reached an agreement with Rwanda last year. In exchange for an upfront payment of £120 million (about $157 million), Rwanda will take migrants who entered the kingdom illegally. In this country, people will be waiting for their asylum applications to be processed in the UK. The partnership program began to operate on January 1, 2022, the authorities planned to send the first illegal migrants to Rwanda in June.


Thus, in Britain they are trying to reduce the migration flow to the kingdom. Human rights organizations in Britain called this decision “cruel” and opposed its adoption.
