According to Sir Trevor Phillips, immigrants who pay to cross the Channel to enter the United Kingdom are “cheating the system,” while his parents, who moved from Guiana in 1950, “did it the hard way.”By Rory Tingle, a correspondent for MailOnline covering home affairs Accessed: 08:24 EDT, August 31, 2023

In comparison to his British Guianan parents, who “did it the hard way,” Sir Trevor Phillips argued that migrants who pay to cross the Channel into Britain are “cheating the system.”

The Labour lawmaker claimed that it was “reasonable” for people to “resent” the notion that cheating the system is conceivable if you are “young, able-bodied,” and wealthy enough to pay a people smuggler.

Sir Trevor, who formerly oversaw the Commission for Racial Equality, claimed that most individuals of immigrant backgrounds had this opinion because they had personally adhered to the law.He urged against viewing all immigrants as a “single mass” and claimed that insufficient effort was being made to identify individuals who were living in the country illegally.The Telegraph quoted Sir Trevor as saying, “We’ve got to find who the illegal immigrants are – we’re talking about upwards of a million people – but very little effort is going into that, because actually, it benefits quite a few people.” “Second, illegal immigrants should be treated fairly once you have located them. Because most of us immigrant folks learned our lessons the hard way, the majority of us will hold that opinion.

“We weren’t going to cheat the system and get her here by some dodgy means,” said the aunt who raised me in British Guiana and is, along with my parents, the most important person in the world to me. She was unable to attend my wedding.The youngest of ten children, Sir Trevor, was born in London in 1950 to parents who had immigrated from Guiana as seamstresses and railway workers, two years prior to the HMT Empire Windrush’s arrival.Sunday Morning with Trevor Phillips, his own current affairs program, premieres on Sky on September 3 at 8.30 a.m.

Sir Trevor, who previously presided over the London Assembly, likewise emphasized the value of racial and ethnic groups mixing rather than residing in separate neighborhoods.

He questioned whether the British model of multiculturalism was effective since people in various towns and cities would mix at work then leave for neighborhoods “where everyone who lives there is people like themselves” in the evenings.

He gave places in the North West, Preston, Burney, and Leicester as examples of this phenomena. Over 20,000 immigrants have just entered the UK after traveling across the Channel. The Conservative administration has ‘failed to get a grip’ on Channel crossings, according to Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary for Labor. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, though, asserted that the government was making progress when fielding questions from broadcasters and defending his “stop the boats” agenda. Cross-Channel migrant workers may be required to wear electronic tags, according to a new Home Office announcement.

According to the Telegraph, the migrants would be GPS tracked in real-time and obliged to report to immigration officers many times every day through text message or in person. Any right to bail or to remain in the UK would be automatically removed if there was any attempt to remove the tag and flee.It comes amid worries that the UK’s immigration detention facilities may fill up, prompting officials to look for alternate strategies to prevent thousands of unauthorized immigrants from fleeing their country.
