British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak revealed a one-third decrease in the number of migrants illegally crossing into the UK from Europe.
Despite skepticism, he emphasized the successful repatriation of thousands of individuals to countries such as Albania.
“People may not know this, but this year because of all the things that we’ve done, the number of illegal migrants crossing to the UK is down by a third. Everyone told me that wasn’t possible, but because we worked really hard, we’re returning thousands of people to places like Albania, we’ve got the numbers down by a third already,” Sunak said.
Speaking from Worksop in Nottinghamshire, Sunak expressed his determination to resurrect the UK government’s stalled proposal to send asylum-seekers to Rwanda without violating international law.
