Johnson, speaking before the House of Commons of the British Parliament, promised to explore all the possibilities “on the human rights track.” Johnson assured a party member that in the near future the UK Home Office will propose to Parliament to toughen the punishment for those who illegally cross the state border.
Amendments by the British Home Office to the state border law will also establish punishment in the form of life imprisonment for those who assists illegal immigrants.

Johnson, in turn, suggested that the French leader take illegal immigrants back to his place, and not send them across the English Channel.
