SO WHAT?

The migrants are fighting police at Calais because the benefit for them potentially to get to Britain outweighs any cost. To stop their behavior, decrease the benefit and increase the cost. Most effective would be deporting them to their home countries and not letting them back in.




The Telegraph:

Police fired tear gas and three officers were injured on Saturday in clashes with migrants near the French port of Calais who took advantage of a traffic jam to sneak onto trucks, authorities said.

Calais is a magnet for people aiming to reach Britain, a short distance across the Channel.

“Our British colleagues had opened only nine out of 14 lanes this weekend though we expected 9,000 vehicles in the Eurotunnel and 7,500 at the port,” local deputy police chief Jean-Philippe Vennin told AFP.
