UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said his government has slashed the number of people arriving in Britain without permission and eliminated a historical backlog in processing asylum cases as he seeks to show voters that the Conservative administration is making progress in bearing down on immigration.

Speaking to broadcasters on Tuesday morning, Home Secretary James Cleverly said the government had “cleared the “legacy backlog of some 92,000 asylum applications recorded before June 2022.”

The government last year processed 112,000 asylum claims and removed 24,000 people from the UK, according to a Home Office statement. Data also showed the number of migrants crossing the English Channel in small boats dropped 36 percent last year, the first decline in at least five years — though still the second highest annual total
