What started out as a big welcome to migrants by the general public has now turned into chants of “enough is enough.”
While all attention was on the dangers of the coronavirus, the economic lockdowns, and the resulting destruction of the economy, a steady stream of illegal Muslim migrants have been entering Britain in total defiance of COVID rules and the rule of law. UK authorities simply turned a blind eye. The protests proved too embarrassing for one politician, Natalie Elphicke, who said: “It’s time to stop the small boats crossings but today’s protestors are not welcome in Dover.”
Elphicke, as a public servant, is insensitive to the concerns of those who have had enough of these illegal incursions, and of the inaction of the government.
“The top five most common countries of nationality for asylum seekers are from Iran, Iraq, Eritrea, Pakistan and Albania. Two-thirds of resettled refugees in the UK are Syrian nationals.”
On May 31, 2021 Kurt Zindulka wrote in the Breitbart, while migrants were being escorted by the British Border force through the Port of Dover, where they were brought ashore to be processed by immigration officials, police made four arrests of anti-immigration activists during a protest in the English coastal town.
Protesters staged a sit-in on Snargate Street, blocking off the road for at least an hour, waving flags, carrying banners reading “Stop the Invasion”, and chanting “enough is enough”.
One protester, dubbed Brexit Brian, told local news outlet Kent Online that he is not “far-right” but came to the protest to stand up for the principle of stopping illegal migration into Britain.
“So many of us are upset about with the government and their policies, especially as most of us in this country have been on lockdown and it seems that the illegal immigrants have not had the same lockdown conditions that we have had,” he said.
Responding to whether he is “far-right” or a supporter of the National Front, Brian said: “That’s not the case at all. I’m simply a patriot — I know it’s an anomaly, people might think ‘what’s a black guy doing [here]’ — but actually it has nothing to do with being black or white, it’s to do with the principles, the principles of illegal immigration, it’s got to stop.”
