The headline screams: More than 17,000 attempts by illegal Islamic African invaders to reach Britain from Calais since January – or 140 a day –as numbers at the ‘New Jungle’ grow. Let that sink in. Still want to be part of the EEU do you?
And please stop calling them migrants, they are illegal African invaders
- Figures from the French Interior Ministry show number of attempts this year
- When The Jungle shut in October last year, authorities said it would lead to a cut in numbers trying to reach UK
- One illegal African invader told Sky News he would keep on trying to get into Britain after being deported twice
- On Thursday an Eritrean man died after falling from a lorry in Calais
Lets get the facts right, these lot are not our problem at all.
Their lives have no value to the western world at all
More than 17,000 attempts have been made by illegal African invaders to sneak into the UK on trucks and trains in Calais this year, official figures reveal.
Information released by the French Interior Ministry show that thousands of people are attempting to enter the UK illegally.
It follows the closure of the Jungle refugee camp in October last year, a move which backers claimed would reduce the number of attempts.On Thursday an Eritrean man died after falling from a lorry, reportedly having jumped off when he realised it was bound for Belgium and not the UK.
French authorities believe there are around 350 illegal African invaders in the Calais area, but organisations distributing aid believe this figure is really around 1,000, RT reports.
Sky News correspondent Mark Stone, who has been in Calais this week, wrote: ‘The sole objective of the authorities here in Calais is to prevent a new camp from taking hold. And so, almost every night, they disrupt the migrants; sweeps of the woods are common.’
Human Rights Watch has accused riot police of using brutal methods to disrupt groups of refugees in Calais.
The pressure group released a report claiming adults and children were being pepper sprayed ‘while they sleep’ and pose no threat.
One man who has twice been deported from the UK told Mr Stone: ‘Why not in UK? We like it there. We can speak English, we can live our life better. So why not UK? I guarantee after one month, or two months, I will be there. If they kick me out, I will try again. I don’t care.’
Last October the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp was razed to the ground having become a home for thousands of people risking their lives to cross the border.
They were mostly resettled in other areas, but there have been recent reports that people are returning to the site.
Last month, French authorities announced plans to dismantle a migrant camp built by humanitarian group MSF 30 miles north in Dunkirk, less than six months after clearing the camp at Calais.
Speaking at a French senate hearing, Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said security forces would close the Grande-Synthe facility near the port of Dunkirk ‘as soon as possible’ after a series of violent clashes there.
ts wooden cabins, home to about 1,500 illegal African invaders and refugees, most of them Kurds, were opened in March 2016 by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) over the objections of the central government.
For more than a decade, France’s northern coast has been a magnet for refugees and illegal African invaders trying to reach Britain, with French authorities repeatedly tearing down shantytowns in the area.
After fleeing war or poverty, men, women and children gather near ports where they seek to break into trucks heading to Britain or pay smugglers to help them get across the Channel.
The issue is a constant source of friction between Britain and France and an embarrassment for the French government, which has been criticised by the United Nations refugee agency for failing to provide adequate accommodation.
The UN no doubt would want the French to build 5 star resorts for these lot
The government believes camps encourage people to travel there, causing a major security problem, and urges migrants instead to register asylum applications in France and seek shelter in facilities elsewhere.
Repeated break-ins around ports have caused delays to travellers and truck drivers, while local residents also complain about disruption and damage done to the image of their area.
The Socialist government, which is determined to try to stop another camp from springing up in Calais, has criticised Britain for reneging on a deal to resettle hundreds of underage illegal African invadersfrom the camp.
