Sajid Javid questions whether cross-Channel migrants are 'genuine' asylum seekers per Sky News

'Speaking during a visit to Dover, Sajid Javid said: "A question has to be asked: if you are a genuine asylum seeker why have you not sought asylum in the first safe country that you arrived in?

"Because France is not a country where anyone would argue it is not safe in anyway whatsoever, and if you are genuine then why not seek asylum in your first safe country?"

The home secretary's comments have been criticised by opposition MPs and charities, with many pointing out that the UK has to assess asylum claims fairly.'
