why are the media peddling the notion that most of the river crossings are from Albanians where the figures show around the same number of Afghans are crossing? Strange

why does someone post an image on twitter, taken from an article, ask questions addressed in that article, without any reference? the core answers are there.

Perhaps it is because there has been a significant increase in migration from Albania since July


However, since May 2022, there has been a significant increase in the number of Albanians crossing the channel on small boats. From May to September 2022 Albanian nationals alone comprised 42% of small boat crossings, with 11,102 Albanians arriving by small boat in those five months. In contrast, over the whole of 2021 there were a total of 815 Albanian nationals who arrived by this method. In some weeks over the summer, more than half of small boat arrivals claimed to be Albanian.

Anyway I can't see that it makes any difference which country they are fleeing from , they all need to be housed and cared for without prejudice

No it makes a huge difference. They want to peddle the idea that it's all or mostly Albanians so people buy into the idea they don't necesarily come from war torn countries while not mentioning an almost similar number come from a Afghanistan, a country we invaded, occupied and surrendered to the Taliban, turning our back on it's civilians. They come back to the UK seeking sactuary and we have the audacity to call THEM invaders !!

3rd most come from Iran, as we saw with Zagawi-Ratcliffe, they imprison an toture it's people and they have had massive floods due to climate change which we largely contributed to Then you have Iraq,a county we invaded illigally and caused unrest and the insurgence of ISIS, after that Syria, Etria, Sudan all in the misdst of wars. But no one talks about those nationals, I can only assume accepting the fact most refugees are genuine and come from war torn countries doesn't suit the racist narrative....
