United Nations Makes These Baseless Assertions About The Flood Of Illegal Immigrants To UK
(Tea Party 247) – Progressives are quickly taking over the world with the help of global organizations like the World Health Organization and the United Nations. The efforts to move the world towards embracing no borders and a one world government have never been so obvious.
The UN has told the citizens of the UK that the onslaught of illegal immigrants is “not a threat” to Britain and not only that, they should embrace them because it could somehow benefit tax payers. A representative from the UN argued in front of the Commons Home Affairs Committee Wednesday, that Britain should provide new opportunities for even more low and no-skilled third world migrants to come to the country illegally because it will deter people from paying human traffickers.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ (UNHCR) representative in the UK, Rossella Pagliuchi-Lor, told MPs that the thousands of people who have broken into Britain in recent months were not a problem.
Instead, she insisted that the only “dangers” of the situation were risks to the lives of migrants travelling across the Channel in dinghies, along with “a different sort of risk”, which she said was critical media reporting of the phenomenon.
Taking aim at “the sort of narrative that we’re seeing in the media and elsewhere that suggests these arrivals by boat present… a danger, a threat to the UK, when in fact [illegal immigrants are taking] simply a different route,” the UN official insisted that third world migrants are “not a threat”.
“The people that you will find on the boats are pretty much the same you would have found otherwise on the back of a lorry. There is no real difference — the main risk is to themselves with regards to the danger of the crossing itself”.

She also dismissed the idea that boats could be turned back to France, stressing that attempts to do this could put migrants’ lives at risk in the water and therefore should not be an option for Britain.
The UN’s evidence to the select committee came as the total number of migrants officially recorded as having made it to British shores by boat this year had reached close to 7,000 — more than triple the figure recorded in 2019.
Pagliuchi-Lor and Vincent Cochetel, the UNHCR’s special envoy for illegal immigration to Europe via the Mediterranean route, said Britain was a popular destination for migrants due to its reputation as a “champion in terms of multiculturalism”, and called for the government to create “safe, legal routes” for migration.
Pagliuchi-Lor went on to complain that the UK’s restrictions on family reunification are “quite restrictive” saying that the government needs to broaden who they define as family so as to encourage more chain migration. She also said that the UK needs more legal pathways so that low-wage laborers can resettle in Britain and that the UK needs to expand its “study visas.”

Pagliuchi-Lor even tried asserting that illegal immigrants somehow contributed money to the country’s treasury at a rate higher than what they burden the tax system. The truth is, as Breitbart points out, pro-immigration researchers from University College London found that illegal immigration from outside of Europe cost British taxpayers £118 between 1995 and 2011.

Obviously, it’s completely nonsensical to think that illegal immigration is going to result in prosperity. It has been proven to do nothing but the opposite.
