‘We don’t want to help them!’ Dr. Shola slams Priti Patel’s policy of’returning migrants.’
Boris Johnson and Priti Patel have been chastised by SHOLA Mos-Shogbamimu for failing to reach an agreement with France to end dangerous attempts to cross the Channel from Calais and Dunkirk.
Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu slammed the UK and France for failing to reach an agreement on how to best prevent migrants from attempting to cross the Channel in perilous conditions.
Dr. Shola questioned Boris Johnson and Priti Patel’s condolences to the families of the 27 people who died trying to enter the UK, and demanded an end to the divisive language directed at France in favor of finding a solution that would save lives.
“I am done with politicians like Boris Johnson and Priti Patel coming out with thoughts and sympathies for the families of those who died,” she told Jeremy Vine on The Jeremy Vine on Five show.
“In the end, British policy is to send the boats back.”
We don’t want them here, says British policy.
As a result, when Boris Johnson talks about cooperating with France, he hasn’t actually done so.
“Let’s not forget that both France’s and Britain’s immigration policies are influenced by the fact that some members of the public do not want migrants here, despite the fact that many of those who want to come to England are legitimate refugees.”
“The vast majority of these refugees stop in other countries first…only a small percentage come to us.”
We don’t want to help them, even if they are a minority.
“I want to assist them, but I don’t know how!”
“The issue is that we don’t allow or provide a safe alternative, humanitarian route,” Dr. Shola continued.
“Some organizations are proposing to the government that humanitarian visas be made available to expand the family reunification route so that those with families in the United States can apply.”
“We’re not doing the real practical things that can help.”
“What we’re doing,” Priti Patel says, “is turning back the boats.”
President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Boris Johnson held opposing viewpoints on who was to blame for the disaster.
President Macron emphasized the shared responsibility between the two governments in a phone call with Mr Johnson on Wednesday night.
The Prime Minister stated that the French had been difficult to persuade.
