Farage Calls for Royal Navy to Push Back Boat Migrants to France as 50,000 Cross Under Sunak

Reform UK leader Nigel Farage has called for the Royal Navy to intervene in the migrant crisis as he took to the English Channel once again on Tuesday as 50,000 illegals reached British shores since Prime Minister Rishi Sunak came into power. Listen to Story

With a little over a week left before Britons head to the polls for the July 4th early general election called by Prime Minister Sunak, his government’s failure to “stop the boats” was put on full display as populist challenger Nigel Farage filmed 45 migrants packed in a small rubber dinghy making their way into British territorial waters to be escorted ashore by the Border Force and brought into the country.

The latest crossings take the total to over 13,000 for 2024, an all-time high for the first seven months of any year, and marked 50,000 since Rishi Sunak came into office in 2022.

Mr Farage, who first brought the Channel migrant crisis to national attention over four years ago, has branded this year’s vote as the “migration election” and said that the continued waves demonstrated that “Rishi can’t stop the boats”.

“The significance of this boat is that this number on this vessel take it beyond 50,000 that have come since Rishi Sunak has been Prime Minister. During Boris Johnson’s time, 68,000 came, but he was there for double the period,” he told GB News live from the Channel.

“So don’t delude yourselves, this problem is getting worse. And we’re witnessing a very big, significant number today.”

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Sunak asserted that the migrant crisis would only grow under the Labour Party — which is widely expected to form the next government after the election — citing reports that some migrants are “waiting for a Labour administration” in order to avoid the potential of being removed to Rwanda.

Mr Farage rejected this notion, saying that the so-named Conservatives “don’t bear credibility in any way at all. Were this lot behind me waiting for a Labour government? Were they hell.”

“Over 128,000 people have come, 90 per cent of them young men, many coming from war zones, from areas plagued by terrorism, gang crime, many coming with attitudes towards women that we would find completely unacceptable. I mean, how much worse could it be under Labour that it’s been under him?”
