The illegal migrants piling up at Calais, France (click here for our archive) are stepping up their aggressive efforts to break into the UK. So in wake of the Tunisian slaughter, the British government plans to build a high fence at the truck terminal there to thwart those who might hide on trucks bound for the UK fearing, of course, that terrorists are among the phony asylum seekers.
From The Telegraph:
Britain is to build more than two miles of high-security fencing at the Channel Tunnel port in northern France, in an attempt to stop thousands of illegal migrants breaking into lorries bound for the UK.
James Brokenshire, the Immigration Minister, told the Telegraph he was taking action after a surge in the number of “clandestines” storming the border in the Calais area last week.
He announced plans to protect the lorry terminal in Coquelles, near Calais, with nine-foot high police barrier that has previously been used to secure the London Olympics and last year’s Nato summit in Wales.
The minister will also hold urgent talks this week with the European Commission and haulage firms in an effort to force foreign lorry companies to improve the security of their vehicles.
Speaking on Saturday, as the scale of the Tunisia beach massacre became clear, he warned there was a risk that foreign jihadists could try to enter Britain with some of the 3,000 migrants at Calais.
The action comes after hundreds of illegal migrants tried to break through controls at Calais and Coquelles last week. A strike by French ferry workers caused mayhem in the area, bringing traffic to a standstill and allowing hundreds of migrants to try to break into vehicles.
