Channel crossings: Boris Johnson on migrants’ rights


Britain should work with “French friends” to stop migrants crossing the English Channel to reach the UK, the PM has said.

And Boris Johnson said a review was needed of the “panoply of laws that an illegal immigrant has at his or her disposal that allow them to stay”.

On a visit to a school in east London, Mr Johnson said he wanted to work with the French to stop the activity of the “cruel and criminal gangs” who were risking people’s lives.
