Brexit ringleader and Euroskeptic campaigner Nigel Farage exposed the criminal operations of a human smuggling ring in action on the English Channel on Wednesday, documenting the complicity of the French Navy and the British border service in the infiltration attempt by the illegal immigrants.
Farage caught a French vessel intercepting the migrants’ unsafe and packed dinghy, only to view the French authorities escort the lifeboat to British waters where the British border patrol service dutifully took custody of the migrant group.
Farage is a longtime fisherman, and this isn’t the first time he’s filmed the transit of illegal immigrant boats across the English Channel while out boating.
Watch as the longtime mainstay of British nationalist politics exposes the criminal operation in real time:
“The truth is, this is a massive criminal enterprise… That is organizing all of this, making vast sums of money. You can see all of the boats, absolutely packed… All being charged a minimum of five thousand euros each by the criminal gangs.”
Remarkably, Farage was told to cease filming by British border services before the authorities took custody of the illegal migrants from the French navy.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the infiltration of illegal immigrant boats into Britain across the English channel has actually increased, contrasting starkly with illegal immigration levels to countries such as the United States. Farage has demanded that the British government get serious about deterring the flow of migrants, who pay nefarious criminal smugglers large sums of money to be taken across the channel in a perilous journey.
There are nine migrant boats reported in the Channel, looks like another record day already.
The invasion continues yet the BBC and ITV won't report this.
No wonder trust in the media is lower than ever.

Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance
Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.
In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.
Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.
Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.
Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.
Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.
The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.
While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.
As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:
“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”
While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.
It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.
While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
