They have indeed broken the law. They have entered the UK illegally. They have not been vetted. Less than two weeks ago, some migrants were accusing the UK of “racism” because they were unhappy about accommodations at the Napier Barracks, despite the fact that British soldiers who were housed at the same barracks in the past had no complaints. Rather than be grateful, the migrants stated that they wanted to move to the EU. By so doing they would receive better welfare benefits, particularly in Western Europe. Due to the lobbying of Islamic supremacist groups against so-called “Islamophobia,” the expectation prevails widely that economic migrants who enter the UK and EU illegally are entitled to VIP treatment at dhimmi taxpayer expense.
“Napier Barracks: Asylum seekers at Kent camp speak out – ‘we were treated like criminals,’” by Mark White, Sky News, February 20, 2021:
Asylum seekers housed at a disused army barracks in Kent were “treated like criminals” and some even tried to commit suicide, former residents have told Sky News.
Independent inspectors have spent the past week at Napier Barracks in Folkestone and at Penally camp, another former military base used to accommodate asylum seekers in Pembrokeshire.
It follows growing calls for the facilities to be closed down, amid claims of “inhumane” and “unsafe” conditions.
Tensions within Napier Barracks led to serious disturbances and a fire three weeks ago, after a COVID outbreak swept through the camp, infecting 120 asylum seekers there.
Majid, a young Iranian asylum seeker, is now living in hotel accommodation in London, but spent more than four months at the barracks.
He said he still suffered bouts of depression because of his time at Napier.
“When I first got there, it was like a prison. You could see all the fences and the security guards walking around,” he said. “It was really shocking for me. Twenty-eight people were in each block with just two toilets and two showers in a block.
“Everyone slept close to each other sharing the same air. There were no supplies to clean or take care of our health.”
Majid said things became increasingly desperate after coronavirus was detected at the barracks last month. Within weeks, it swept through the population there.
Mohamed, another resident at the camp during the height of last month’s outbreak, said tensions began to build because of the lack of any proper social distancing, with many of those infected still allowed to mingle with the general population.
“The security officers treated us very badly,” he said. “They didn’t want to hear from us, and we weren’t allowed to speak to anyone in authority.
“We were so shocked at the state of the barracks and it was this frustration that boiled over.”
On 29 January, disturbances broke out in a number of the barrack blocks. One block was badly damaged by fire….
