A further 80,000 are in longer term housing, which could cost an additional £550 million a year.

Total asylum costs have reached £2bn for the first time, statistics revealed this summer.

Tory MP Tom Hunt said last night: “The amount of money being spent is worrying.”

The number of migrants crossing the Channel to get to Britain has reached 30,515 this year, after another 667 arrived on Wednesday.

Alp Mehmet, chairman of Migration Watch UK who drafted the report, called for new Interior Minister Suella Braverman Act.

He said: “As illegal boat arrivals soared during the summer, the number housed in hotels has likely also increased.

“It is now costing the already heavily pressured taxpayers dazzling amounts of money.

“The Home Secretary must now show the determination needed to face the costly chaos.”


THE brigade of the open borders acts as if asylum seekers are not a real burden.

But we now know what that burden is: a staggering £2 billion a year, of which £1.3 billion are hotel bills.

That figure is only set to rise, with more than 30,000 illegal migrants on our beaches so far this year.

Our new government promises to finally put an end to this scandal. How exactly?

Liz Truss even failed to say it to President Macron in New York. Why?
