UK Home Office is launching a migrant warning campaign

In 2022, records numbers of migrants crossed the English Channel and more than 6,000 have been detected making the journey so far in 2023.

As a result, a new poster warns Albanians thinking about making the journey that they „face being detained and removed” should they arrive in the UK illegally. There is also a version of the posted in Albanian, with the publicity drive expected to start next week.

This comes amid plans proposed to deport more than 3,000 asylum seekers every month under the Government’s Illegal Migration Bill. Leaked briefing papers suggest that the Government aims to remove circa 3k asylum seekers per month from January 2024, reports The Guardian.

Similar adverts have already been tried, with the Home Office warning Albanians on social media not to make the journey last August.

Travelling through various countries, some Albanians make „spurious asylum claims when they arrive”, the Home Office added.

According to the newspaper, the documents were prepared for Justice Secretary Alex Chalk and the Ministry of Justice permanent secretary Antonia Romeo. The briefing is believed to be a draft and had not been seen by the minister, and estimated costs remain unknown.
