But Patel is increasingly criticized for the fact that her repeated announcements of more decisive measures to stop the wave of migration do not translate into any visible results.

Due to concerns that the issue of the uncontrolled influx of migrants may affect the ratings of the ruling Conservative Party, last weekend the media reported that Stephen Barclay, the minister-chief of the prime minister’s office, is to conduct a review of measures that can be taken to stop this phenomenon.

In July, the United Kingdom concluded an agreement with France under which the French authorities, in exchange for financial aid, undertook to prevent migrants from trying to cross the English Channel more effectively. The government in London, however, believes that France is not doing as much as it should. According to British authorities on Monday, this year France has kept over 20,000 on its side. migrants.
