Home Office campaign for migrants, Albanian smugglers "mocks" Britain

Home Office campaign for migrants, Albanian smugglers "mocks" Britain

A week after the Home Office launched a campaign to make all Albanians aware not to emigrate to Great Britain in dinghies, Albanian smugglers have responded to the "stop and deport" campaign.

As "Daily Mail" writes , the smugglers have mocked Great Britain's approach to immigrants, in advertisements where the Home Office promotes government services.

Gangsters, who demand up to £3,500 for dangerous Channel crossings, have hit back with their own ads on social media platform TikTok. Gangsters guarantee that no one will return to Albania.

“Passing this weekend. £3000 from France to UK. No one will return you to Albania" , says an advertisement.

Other ads suggest that those making the trip would only spend "a day in detention."

Research by Oxford University's Migration Observatory found that the majority of those released from detention facilities were held for less than 29 days, with only 13 per cent staying longer.

The Illegal Migration Bill, which is being considered in the House of Lords, will ensure that those who arrive in the UK illegally will be stopped and removed immediately.
