Open border elites fume as Braverman calls immigration crisis an invasion

The open borders establishment in the media class and the globalist wing of the Tory Party have fallen victim to Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s rhetoric on the immigration crisis, which she has described as an “invasion”.

Echoing earlier remarks by Brexit leader Nigel Farage, Suella Braverman took to the despatch box in the House of Commons on Friday afternoon to address the migration crisis in the English Channel, where around 40,000 illegals, including thousands of young Albanians, have arrived in Britain. coast since the beginning of the year.

“The British people deserve to know which party is serious about stopping the invasion of our south coast and which party is not,” Braverman said amid loud grumblings from the Labor Party.

“Around 40,000 people arrived on the south coast this year alone, many of whom were facilitated by criminal gangs, some of them actual members of criminal gangs. So let’s stop pretending it’s all refugees in distress: the whole country knows that’s not true.”

“I’m very serious about ending the scourge of illegal immigration and I’m determined to do whatever it takes to break up criminal gangs and fix our hopelessly lax asylum system, which is why I’m in government.”

Braverman’s comments drew immediate backlash from all sectors of the globalist establishment in Britain, from the legacy media to politicians in both the Labor and Conservative parties, who objected to Prime Minister Sunak’s decision to re-hire her as Home Secretary. . just a week after she resigned from the Truss government.

The staunch Brexiteer was said to have resigned over breaches of the ministerial code by sending documents to other ministers via WhatsApp, however, in her resignation letter, it was clear she felt the government was ready to make another U-turn and abandon efforts to curb her massiveness. immigration, illegal and legal.

Closing Braverman, ITV’s chief political editor, Robert Peston he said: “Rishi Sunak, with Jeremy Hunt, said he will govern with ‘compassion’.” Her inflammatory description of asylum seekers crossing the Channel as ‘an invasion of our south coast’ is not particularly sympathetic language.’

Her cabinet colleague, Immigration Secretary Robert Jenrick also took a shot at Braverman on Tuesday. When pressed on whether he would classify the 40,000 mostly young men who arrived illegally this year as an invasion, he told Sky News: “In a job like mine, you have to choose your words very carefully. And I would never demonize people who come to this country seeking a better life.”

The Times of London claimed an unnamed former Tory home secretary said her comments about the “invasion” proved “what a thug she is”, adding: “She’s high-spirited, completely ruthless and disingenuous, who gets through it and that’s the reputation she has now.”

Far-left Labor MP Daine Abbott also joined the fray, saying: “If Nigel Farage thinks Suella Braverman is right then he really should be sacked.”

For his part, Mr Farage said the manufactured outrage over the use of the word invasion or minor breaches of the ministerial code was really just a cover for the fact that many want Braverman out of office to stop her from introducing reforms to close. reducing mass immigration.

“Let me tell you what her big sin is,” Mr Farage said on Tuesday morning, “She wants to leave the ECHR, she doesn’t want judges to be able to stop deportations ought. don’t be here That’s her real sin and the people who want her out are basically lefties, paybacks… and it’s not just in the media, it’s coming from some within her own party.”

Braverman, herself the daughter of immigrants, was previously backed by Farage in this summer’s leadership contest to replace Boris Johnson after she advocated removing the UK’s membership of the European Court of Justice, in which the UK remains member despite Brexit. it is technically a separate institution from the EU and which controversially intervened to stop the removal of many illegal immigrants from the country to Rwanda.

As well as being a vocal figure on the issue of illegal immigration, Braverman has also been one of the few voices also advocating a reduction in overall legal immigration, arguing in September that to actually deliver on its Brexit promises, the government would must work to finally reduce net migration to the “tens of thousands”.

This has not won her favor with the globalist establishment. Indeed, in a thinly veiled threat, writing to Financial Times on Monday, billionaire Hungarian activist George Soros wrote: “I find the re-appointment of Szuela Braverman as interior minister disturbing. Restricting immigration will increase wage costs and fuel inflation. If this is the path Sunak chooses, the optimism prevailing in the financial markets will not be justified.”
