Headline grabbing policies such as sending asylum seekers to Rwanda to have their claims processed are failing to halt Channel crossings, which could double by the end of this year, according to a parliamentary report.

The home affairs select committee has published a damning and wide ranging report into the failures of Home Office asylum policies, including stopping refugees from crossing the Channel in small boats.

The report – Channel Crossings, Migration and Asylum – estimates that by the end of 2022, approximately 60,000 asylum seekers could cross the Channel, more than double the 28,500 total for 2021. So far this year, more than 14,000 asylum seekers have crossed the Channel to claim asylum.

Yes, control is needed and the system is failing to meet requirements.

Good to see the 'G' realising the importance of regulating movement and reporting the story. :yes:

Yeah, though fits narrative that africans played substantial, if not major role in Britain development since Hadrian.

Some more of those quick fix migration policies.  

The EU has launched a new multi-million-pound partnership with Niger to "tackle migrant smuggling", leading to criticism from human rights groups. 

"[This is] yet another example of the EU’s approach of externalisation of migration control to third countries, and its focus on securitising borders rather than offering legal pathways for migration,"

The latest migration deal between the EU and an African nation involves an initial payment of 195 million euros in financial support to Niger from the European bloc.  

"Nigerien security forces have demonstrated inconsistent regard for human rights and have been implicated in serious abuses against civilians," said Human Rights Watch. 

The EU has been regularly accused of ‘border externalisation’ - outsourcing enforcement to countries across northern Africa, including Libya, irrespective of their human rights records.

The EU think this solution ticks all the/ their boxes.

 "Today, the European Union and Niger are strengthening their cooperation with the launch of an operational partnership to tackle migrant smuggling. Joint efforts under this partnership will help to save lives, disrupt the business model used by criminal networks, prevent migrants from becoming victims of violence and exploitation and protect their fundamental rights."

Sounds familiar. ;)

That's only been true since Tudor/Stuart times.

Why does the UK not use them to solve its labour shortages? Are they all unskilled? Unskilled or not, they could fill many jobs that the natives of Britain are too work-shy or indolent to take.

What is the point of having an immigration policy if its ignored and the numbers arriving is governed by how many want to come. 

What migrants could do if allowed to stay does not come into it. 

An open door policy will not work, it only appears to work when various random circumstances limit numbers by chance to something close to what is practical.
