No new refugee centre in Calais

Post Neon Knight on Tue 1 Aug - 21:37

Despite the fact hundreds of refugees and migrants are living in Calais in desperate conditions the French government has vowed there will be no new welcome centre built. Instead security will be reinforced.

Making his first visit to a city which has for years been a magnet for migrants and refugees hoping to cross to Britain, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb (see pic below) ruled out building a reception centre for asylum-seekers in Calais, saying it would only encourage more people to come.

"We've seen this before, it starts with a few hundred people and ends with several thousand people who we can't manage," Collomb said as he met with security forces, officials and aid workers in Calais. That's why we don't want a centre here." Instead, Collomb said, "we are going to reinforce security with the arrival of two additional mobile security force units to stop any new camps from forming."

Authorities shut down the notorious "Jungle" camp in Calais, which at its height was home to some 10,000 people living in dire conditions, last October. But hundreds of migrants -- mostly Afghans, Sudanese and Eritreans -- are still at the port, clashing sporadically with police as they try every night to stow away onto trucks heading to Britain.

This week a Polish driver was killed when his truck burst into flames after hitting a roadblock, set up by migrants hoping to slow the traffic to make it easier to jump onto vehicles. The roadblocks began reappearing in late May with a new uptick of migrants in the region -- and a surge for Europe, with Italy registering more than 65,000 arrivals since January. While the tent city of the Jungle is gone, migrants say conditions in Calais are bleaker than ever.

A socialist government closed Calais's camp, and now the government of the self-declared multiculturalist Macron acts like if immigrants were a nuisance...

Is there a turning point in how political-correct governments deal with illegal immigration issues?.

Is cultural-marxism losing ground in western societies?
