‘Breaking point’ — Kent has no place for ‘local children’ in schools

Local officials in migrant landing hotspot Kent have warned they are at “breaking point” as almost 40,000 illegals have landed in Britain this year, sparking chaotic scenes across the country.

The growing migrant crisis, dubbed an “invasion” by Home Secretary Suella Braverman, has upset local government in Kent, with council leaders telling the Home Secretary they can no longer afford to provide for their own local children . education and other services as the system has prioritized the children of illegal immigrants.

A letter to Braverman and from the county’s 14 local authorities said children in Ashford and Canterbury “currently have no Year 7 and 9 places for local children due to the unexpected and therefore unpredictable arrivals of refugee children being placed disproportionately from the Ministry of the Interior. in these two local government areas’.

“Local children have to travel to other towns to access their education, putting a further burden on the Kent County Board of Finance who have to fund their transport from home to school as a result,” local officials added.

“Simply put, Kent is at tipping point,” they said, explaining that local public services, including health care and education, are already under severe pressure from the cost of living crisis and have been pushed to the limit by mass influxes. illegal aliens crossing the English Channel.

During the 2016 EU referendum, Brexit leader Nigel Farage was criticized for using the same phrase “tipping point” in an election poster calling for Britain to break free from the bloc and “take back control” of the nation’s borders . For the poster, Mr Farage was reported to the police by a union boss, who accused the campaigner of “inciting racial hatred”.

Local council chiefs went on to say they have “20,000 households on the waiting list for social housing, rising costs and limited availability of the private rented sector and temporary accommodation”.

The immigration crisis has not only strained social services, with record numbers of illegals costing British taxpayers millions a day to house them in hotels across the country. According to a report from The sun Thursday’s newspaper, one in four hotels used to house migrants are luxury four- or five-star properties.

In a surprising turn of events, a group of volunteer RNLI lifeboat operators – who are often tasked with escorting migrants ashore in the English Channel on behalf of the government – were kicked out of their hotel midway through their stay on Tuesday without warning, so the hotel could redefine rooms for immigrants.

On Wednesday, footage also emerged of a group of migrants protesting outside a Holiday Inn in Essex, protesting the free food and accommodation they received at taxpayers’ expense. On his GB News show, Nigel Farage quipped: “I’m not sure the Savoy would make some of these people happy.”

London also saw chaotic scenes this week, with a group of 11 migrants leaving at Victoria station after hundreds were transferred from Manston processing centre, which was designed to accommodate only 1,000 people for a 24-hour period but held more than 2,600 migrants for often much longer stretches. Outbreaks of unrest among the migrants were reported as well as cases of diphtheria as a result of overcrowding.

The migrants were reportedly bussed from the center to London, where they were released without a place to stay or the government making any attempt to track their whereabouts.

The government’s persistent failures to handle the crisis have caused the public to lose faith in its abilities, with a GB News poll this week finding that 58 per cent of the public believe the British government has “lost control of borders of the country”. This rises to 75 per cent for Conservative voters and 76 per cent for those who voted for Brexit.
