The home secretary visited immigration centers on Thursday as she struggles to contain the migrant crisis amid threats of legal action, allegations of sexual abuse at a refugee hotel and international criticism of her use of language.

She has come under increasing political pressure over the lawless conditions at the site near Ramsgate, where at one point 4,000 people were being held for weeks when 1,600 were meant to be held for a few days.

Downing Street said the number had dropped to 2,700 after more than 1,000 had been moved in the past few days, and that the Prime Minister was receiving twice-daily updates on the situation.

The home secretary stayed away from the media as she visited the Western Jetfoil site in Dover – the scene of Sunday’s petrol bomb attack – amid fears of growing right-wing activity that could increase the number of migrants crossing the English Channel. Caused by failure to control. small boats.

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said it was “surprised but not surprised” by the revelations that the petrol bomber was motivated by Muslim hatred.

“Far-right extremism in the UK is a clear and present threat to our country,” MCB said in a statement.

“It thrives thanks to a prevailing narrative that normalizes hostility towards certain minorities, particularly Muslims, asylum seekers and refugees, and promotes misinformation.

“Over the past few days, divisive ideologues, right-wing media commentators and some politicians have called for us to focus less on the threat of the far right.

“They must be held to account, while more needs to be done to counter the rise of far-right extremism, which is currently on the rise.”

The group noted that Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Matt Jukes said earlier this year that 41 percent of counter-terrorism arrests in 2021 were of far-right suspects.

The MCB said: “Successive Home Secretaries have also failed to understand the extent of the problem of the far right.

“Our government must correct its policy agenda on immigration which only requires more disadvantaged migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.”
