Are Calais Migrants OUR Problem?

Recommended Posts

The body of a 16 Yr old has been found on a beach at Sangatte on the  northern French coast.  He is believed to have drowned in The Channel?

Heard a radio report earlier where refugee charities are calling for the resignation of the Home Secretary, Priti Patel as they believe this incident is her fault as there are no securitous immigration routes into the UK that would prevent such a tragedy?  

 

What utter & ridiculous rubbish, calling for Patel's head. 

 

Yes this is a terrible tradegy but the migrant who has died could have put an end to his to his situation at any point by claiming asylum in the numerous countries he passed thorough. 

 

As for migrants not having a secure route into the UK, again rubbish.  The UK like many countries, take the genuine refugees from refugee camps set up by the UN, to deal with the genuine cases who are fleeing their war torn countries. 

 

The ones to blame here are the people traffickers and it doesn't help that charities working both in the UK & over the other side of The Channel are seemingly helping the people traffickers in perpetuating a dream of a better life in the UK by not deterring migrants from paying the traffickers & having them risk their lives attempting a crossing. 

 

I've seen  & heard a number of interviews over the years with charity workers but I don't recall any, even those at the senior management level, condemning the people traffickers?  Their claims of injustice is always directed at the UK Govt.

Can you think of a way to render the people traffickers redundant?

 

It would be a very easy thing to do. And we’d very likely save a fortune too. As well as avoiding any further tragedies like today’s.

People traffickers demand money.

How much do you reckon this young lad and many others have at their disposal.

Not much but they are indebted and pursued for payment once they arrive at their destination, possibly housed in overcrowded and high rent HOMO and forced to work in unregulated employment for unregulated pay. Illegal migrants are being ‘sold’ a dream but often experience a nightmare payment

Yes they're sold a dream, whilst the traffickers are living the dream.

Yes, I this something that doesn’t get discussed as often as it should be and some are not aware of.

So what do you propose we do Samantha? Let's imagine a child of yours who is forced to flee the country to seek safety elsewhere - how would you like that child to be treated if they land on a foreign shore?

Do you know how many asylum seekers we take compared to other countries Baron99? It's pitiful.

If their situation was so dire once they arrived here, I'm sure the word would get back and there would be virtually no one making the crossing, unless France / Germany offer much worse conditions ?

Many parts of the world are complete disaster areas.

Famine,wars,genocide.

It’s hardly surprising that some will take undertake incredible risks and dangers

to escape these horrors.

France and Germany take 3 or 4 times more refugees than the U.K. and like it or not we have some responsibility just on a humanitarian basis.

Couldn't agree more RJRB.
