A Tory MP has hit out at the government and calls for “illegal migrants” to be expelled from the UK as her office is being “besieged” by asylum seekers.
Jill Mortimer said during Prime Ministers Questions (PMQs) that Hartlepool constituents have concerns over their safety.
Mortimer has called on the Prime Minister to reassure her and Hartlepool constituents that the government are doing everything to tackle “illegal migration.”
She told MPs in the House of Commons, “Every week my office is besieged by asylum seekers. My staff are intimidated by young men. The fact is, most of them are illegal migrants who should be expelled.”
She added: “Will the Prime Minister take action? Will he make sure enforcement is delivered? Will he ensure that people who have no right to be here are expelled?
“Enough is enough, I want these people out of Hartlepool now.”
Rishi Sunak said “I would like to reassure her that this Government is doing everything we can to tackle illegal migration and the harm it causes by removing those with no right to be here in the UK.
“We have excellent longstanding relationships to return people to many countries, we are returning thousands of people more this year than we have done in the past.
“And we will continue to use every avenue at our disposal to ensure that it is only this country and this Government who decides who come here and not criminal gangs.”
