FARAGE: Illegal Immigrants Given Tours of UK Soccer Stadium by Charity Group

187

According to an exposé by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, a charity based in the north of England gave illegal immigrants a full tour of a world-renowned soccer stadium before taking them back to their new homes.

In a tweet containing a video with the Brexit firebrand, Farage is given photos and social media posts of a day trip to Liverpool’s famous Anfield Stadium after they had won the Premier League for the first time in three decades.

Farage, clarifying the locations of the images with a man out of shot, then reads from a Facebook post from the charity group responsible for the day out.

The post from the “A Heart 4 Refugees” reads: “All home back to Hoylake after a [very] memorable day. Highlights were the excitement at seeing Mo Salah’s peg in the changing room, the gasps as we walked through the tunnel into the stadium and tucking into pizza and chips back at StLukes Hoylake.”

Another post about the tour from the charity stated: “So today we [organized] a trip to LFC for a stadium tour. Thank you to LFC for having us and making the guys feel so welcome, and thank you to Wirral Change for contributing to the travel costs. The guys just loved it. Today each and everyone is smiling.”

The charity, based in the Wirral, near Liverpool, in Northwest England, gave the following description about itself on Facebook:

We provide support to refugees in Wirral. We offer a voice to our new [neighbors] and [endeavor] to provide opportunities to learn from each other and celebrate our cultural similarities with the full support of St John the Baptist Church, Meols.

Britain’s inability to repel illegal immigrants entering the country through The Channel has resurfaced this summer as warm temperatures attract migrants to sail across the 21-mile stretch of water from Northeast France.

As of the end of July, it was estimated that more than 3,400 migrants had entered the country via the precarious coastal route, which has claimed several lives in the past.
