In a single day, over 700 migrants reached the UK by crossing the English Channel, setting a new high for the year.

The Home Office reported that on Wednesday, 711 individuals crossed in 14 boats, averaging about 51 people per boat.

This brings the cumulative number of arrivals for the year to date to 8,278.

The current figure exceeds last year’s by 34% and is 19% greater than it was at the same time in 2022.

In the previous year, the total number of migrants reaching the UK was 29,437, marking a 36% decrease from the record high of 45,774 arrivals in 2022.

The administration's strategy to deport individuals to Rwanda is designed to discourage illegal crossings, aligning with one of Rishi Sunak's major commitments to "stop the boats."

Following the enactment of the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Act last week, 1,611 migrants have made their way across the English Channel.

The legislative effort seeks to rejuvenate the program that has been repeatedly obstructed by legal obstacles since its introduction two years prior.

Further Reading: Migrants evicted, restrained, and placed in vehicles. The UK is urged by the Irish Prime Minister to uphold agreement to accept returned asylum seekers from Ireland.

According to the strategy, individuals entering the UK without authorization will be relocated to Rwanda for the evaluation of their asylum requests.

Following the enactment of new laws, relations have become strained between the UK and Ireland due to individuals fleeing to Ireland to avoid deportation.

The Westminster administration has stated that it will not accept returnees until an agreement is established that also permits the return of individuals to France who have traversed the Channel.

To date, no individuals have been forcibly sent to Rwanda, but this week saw a rejected asylum seeker opt to move to ai-allcreator.com">Kigali voluntarily after their request to remain in the UK was denied, utilizing an alternative program.

Authorities have announced that deportation flights are scheduled to depart within nine to eleven weeks, with the initial individuals targeted for deportation being taken into custody on Wednesday following raids at their residences.
