Lucy Moreton, professional officer for the ISU immigration union has today come out saying border force staff feel “threatened” by the “risk of unrest” from the illegal migrants.
Moreton said: The illegal migrants “are not exhausted, beaten down and glad to be here. They know they are going to be moved into accommodation. They want to be moved into accommodation. If that doesn’t happen promptly, they get cross about it.“
“They have to be clothed, but we cannot provide hot food there. They might not have eaten anything. There is a mob mentality that takes over. The vast majority are young males. The families and children are moved clear very quickly.“
“These are groups of people used to acting together to get what they need, and frequently we cannot understand what they are saying to each other. The numbers arriving are phenomenal.”
