The UK asylum system is letting through “some violent rogues who shouldn’t be allowed in”, a GB News guest has told Nigel Farage.

GB News revealed earlier today that up to 30,000 hotel rooms across the UK are being requisitioned by the Home Office every day to house asylum seekers, as they wait for their claims to be processed.

While the first 60 asylum seekers, all single young men, will be bused to an RAF base in Linton-on-Ouse in the next few days.

When asked by Nigel on GB News: “Where does this all end?”, Special Investigations Editor at the Daily Mail, Sue Reid gave a very bleak point of view.

She said: “I fear this will all end in tears, so many are here and waiting for asylum, we’ve got over 100,000 people waiting for asylum.

“The whole asylum system is broken and that is the problem.

“And there are some good people coming in, I promise you I know them.

“But there are some incredible rogues, some violent rogues and people who should not be allowed in.

“But the thing is on Linton-on-Ouse is it will provide a pause, where people can be looked at properly that is what it’s all about.”

Speaking about the new immigration camp in North Yorkshire, a Home Office spokesman said: “The unprecedented and unacceptable rise in dangerous small boat crossings continues to put huge pressure on the UK’s broken asylum system.

“As part of the New Plan for Immigration, we are reducing the current almost £5 million daily cost of using hotels to accommodate migrants through the new asylum reception centre at Linton-on-Ouse and by creating a fairer asylum dispersal system.”

The Home Office also said it “Will use a phased approach to developing Linton-on-Ouse, gradually increasing the number of asylum seekers accommodated at the site over the coming weeks."
