UK survey shows 62% of Britons think Boris Johnson government is failing on immigration


The number of Brits who think Johnson is failing on immigration has jumped 18% since March, reflecting public awareness of the boats filled with Muslim migrants that are routinely coming into the UK illegally across the English Channel, with help from the French navy. In one case, the migrants were threatening to drown their own children if they were barred from entering Britain.

As reported previously on Jihad Watch:

Boris Johnson has been rather quiet as Muslim migrants, many with coronavirus, continue to invade his country illegally, some with help from the French navy. The migrants are from Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, and Iran. Amid the coronavirus lockdown and Antifa/Black Lives Matters anarchy, the hijrah continues, largely under the radar.

Now it is no longer under the radar. British citizens are finally beginning to wonder what is going on with Boris Johnson. But in one hopeful report, 11 were arrested for involvement in a people-smuggling gang that was found to be transporting Muslim migrants across the channel.

“62 Per Cent of Britons Think The Government is Failing on Immigration,” by Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, July 28, 2020:

A poll has found that 62 per cent of the British public believe that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government is performing “badly” in its handling of immigration, as illegal boat migrants in the English Channel soar to record levels.

The YouGov poll found that just 23 per cent of Britons think that the Conservative Party government is performing “well” on the issue of migration. The survey also showed that the percentage of people who are critical of the government’s handling of immigration has jumped from 44 per cent in March to 62 per cent this month.

Responding to the polling data, the chairman of the London-based immigration pressure group Migration Watch UK, Alp Mehmet, told Breitbart London: “The proposed weakening of the system by removing the cap on workers, the handing of control to employers, the open invitation to millions of Hong Kongers and the clear helplessness in dealing with illegality in the Channel have doubtless all contributed to the public’s perception.”

“And this despite the traditional media all but washing their hands of immigration, an issue still of massive importance to Brits,” Mr Mehmet added.

In the 2019 Conservative manifesto, Boris Johnson pledged to reduce the number of migrants coming to the country through the introduction of an Australian-style points-based system for immigration. However, the system proposed by Johnson government would not set a cap on the number of migrants, which critics claim could serve to increase immigration rather than decrease it.

Three previous manifestos from the Conservative Party pledged to reduce migration “from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands”. These promises were left unfulfilled and Johnson has now dropped the target.

In 2017, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, admitted that the Tory governments never actually intended on fulfilling their pledges to the public to cut migration.

In a Breitbart London exclusive video, Mr Mehmet said that “the Tories have frankly run scared of their previous commitments and promises that they would reduce immigration. ‘Get it down to tens of thousands’ they said, which frankly was not a bad objective.”

“They couldn’t do it, largely because they were afraid,” he added.

In June, a report from the National Audit Office (NAO) admitted that the Home Office does not have a clear understanding of the number of illegal immigrants residing in the United Kingdom.

The report noted that the Home Office has abandoned attempting to determine the number of illegals in the country, opting instead to estimate the figure through the number of interactions with immigration officials, which the government says is between 240,000 to 320,000 per year.

Independent research conducted by the Pew Research Center estimated that the number of illegal migrants living in the UK could be as high as 1,200,000, compared to the estimated 430,000 claimed by the government in 2005….
