The UK and France Agree to Tackle Migrant Channel Crossing Crisis

THE UK and France Agree to Tackle Migrant Channel Crossing Crisis.

The UK and France have finally reached a new agreement to tackle migrants crossing the Channel with more officers patrolling beaches and “cutting edge” surveillance technology deployed, said the Home Office. Latest figures show that his year alone more than 8,000 people have reached the UK after making the dangerous crossing on small boats this year as numbers have surged. This comes despite the home secretary’s vow in 2019 to make such journeys an “infrequent phenomenon”.

Priti Patel and French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin have now signed an agreement in which they “reaffirmed their commitment to make this route unviable”. The Home Office said the number of French officers patrolling beaches will double from 1 December – although the exact amount has not been revealed due to “operational sensitivities”.

      these politicians are nothing but foolish talkers
      no more money for illegals (they are all illegal) and immediate deportation of illegally intruders
      only that can be the solution to the problem
