The video originates with Britain First, a UK group. The term “migrant” is routinely used in UK media to describe immigrants. Migrant workers are generally referred to as just that. If you check Britain First’s Gab feed, you will quickly find mentions of “migrants” wreaking havoc, and the meaning is unambiguous. So this criticism of the fact-check appears misplaced.
