The Government has decided to start using former Army barracks to house illegal immigrants who are claiming sanctuary from those very safe countries they have journeyed from.

Around 400 people including families, believed to have crossed the Channel in small boats, are to be housed in temporary accommodation at Napier Barracks in Folkestone, Kent, from next week

There have been calls far and wide to lock these people up when they arrive. They are not arriving from a war zone but from a very safe country and they are not here because of fear but because they want a house, money and everything else they can get free and not work for. Do these people honestly think they can do this without us kicking off as I for one am sick of these people just tipping up. We have our own people that need help and these economic migrants need to go right down to the bottom of the list as they don’t need help if they have come from Europe.

The first thing I would do is clear out the barracks so it is not cosy. They just need a bed and food 3 times a day. This day and age we can often get someone’s ID checked within minutes, and those who deliberately throw away any identification should be returned within 24 hours.

Those who are applying need to be given 7 days only to explain why they have left a safe zone and if not applicable then returned you go. I don’t see why we should have to pay for these people.

Our country is changing so fast and it is not for the good either. Our customs and way of life is changing for people who just want to turn our beautiful country in the place they have just left. They are not grateful, not really and it is an insult to those law abiding citizens who have applied for residency legally. The legal residents are more than welcome as they have done it the right way.

There are enough barracks available to house them. Get them out of hotels and the 4* luxury they are living in because how much do you want to bet they have rung their mates and had a great old time telling them all the freebies they get…and what will the result be….more of them on their way here, and it needs to be stopped now.

Round them up, put them in a former army camp because hey if its good enough for soldiers then it is more than good enough for economic illegal migrants. They must not be given anything more than their basic needs and certainly no money for spends. 3 meals a day, a bed and that is it.

If the Home Secretary can do that and turn these people around with 7 days just imagine what a darling she would be of Tory voters, because I am sick to death of reading how Veterans are dying on the streets because the council won’t house them, yet they are bending over backwards for these people who have in effect just come here to scam us for a free life.

How many times have you read of young children and families having to live in a B&B because there are no houses available, but up pops these illegals and the door to a new home is thrown open to them. It is not right and it is not fair.

When we have tackled our own housing issues and problems in society and we have help left over then certainly help them with money in the place they live, but do not make it so easy to come here and then make it the land of milk, honey and freebies as they will not stop coming and they will never go.

It has gone on for too long and needs to stop. 24 hours if you ditch your ID and return, 7 days if you can’t prove why you have left a safe country and then return. If we make it too hard then they won’t come. Simple and it is a win, win for us as we can take more in legally and help them and solve societies problems too.
