The French warship has been accused of escorting a dinghy packed with 13 immigrants and depositing it with a television news crew.
Journalist Pip Thomson boarded a boat on a British channel and reported on ITV’s Good Morning Britain about the crisis when migrants were dumped to them by French authorities.
The French authorities then disappeared, forcing the television crew to act as guardians until the arrival of British border authorities.
Thomson said: “We monitor this immigrant vessel to ensure that passengers are not in trouble.
“Border forces have not arrived yet because they are busy dealing with other incidents. We will follow until they arrive.”
As these videos below show, the British border unit Jetski finally arrived and took over.
The government vowed to crack down on Tuesday, saying that a record number of at least 430 migrants had illegally crossed the strait to Britain in one day.
Monday’s numbers exceed the previous daily high of 416 set in September 2020, with UK lawmakers reviewing asylum rules and new legislation imposing strict sentences on both immigrants and human smugglers. I came when I had a discussion.
Since the beginning of 2020, more and more immigrants have arrived in the UK. Many are on dangerously crowded inflatable boats. Intersections usually increase due to good summer weather.
A dingy man carrying about 50 people, including women and toddlers, landed in Kent on the south coast of England on Monday, some of whom raised their hands to celebrate.
Dan Omahoney, the government’s secret channel threat commander, called the rise at the intersection “unacceptable” and “dangerous.”
“People should claim asylum in the first safe country they reach and not endanger their lives at these dangerous intersections,” he said.
“We continue to track down the criminals behind these illegal crossings.”
Last year, the government said that about 8,500 people arrived in the UK on dangerous crossings across the strait in small boats from mainland Europe, one of the busiest routes in the world.
Most of the intersections started in France, and the two governments have been wondering who should be responsible for stopping them.
Mr Omahoney said the government’s nationality and border bills passing through parliament “protect life and break this illegal crossing cycle.”
The law extends the maximum sentence for immigrants who enter the UK illegally from six months to four years. Convicted People-Smugglers will face life imprisonment.
“People are crossing channels because they have no choice,” Daniel Sohege, director of the human rights group Stand For All, said on Twitter.
“This is what happens when other routes are closed,” he added, and said the new bill “makes the situation worse and more dangerous.”
However, Home Secretary Priti Patel vowed to regain control of Britain’s borders after Brexit withdrew from the European Union, claiming the bill had been postponed for a long time.
“The bill will ultimately address the issue that led to the collapse of the system of illegal immigrants,” she told Congress on Monday.
We asked the Interior Ministry for comment.
