Steven Woolfe MEP said "Mr Crepeau epitomizes why so many people in Britain dislike the European Union. He is an unknown and unrecognizable bureaucrat, trying enforce a migration policy and philosophy that is alien to the working people of most member nation states. This man has no authority or legitimacy to do so. I do agree with Mr Crepeau when he says 'the status quo isn't sustainable' about immigration into the EU. However I disagree with his solution to further decrease border controls into Europe.
"We need a tough approach on immigration and relaxing border controls to make migration channels more convenient will only encourage more migrants to migrate to Europe and inevitably, the UK. An open door mass migration policy is simply not sustainable for any country. The only way for Britain to regain control of its own borders is to ignore delusional bureaucrats like Mr Crepeau, leave the European Union altogether and implement proper border controls as an independent nation state."
