The ongoing invasion of Great Britain by “migrants” from Africa has been temporarily halted by a beefed-up police presence at the Channel Tunnel. But how long can a few cops hold back the horde?
French police said Saturday around 300 migrants in Calais attempted to reach Britain via the Channel Tunnel overnight, a significant drop from previous nights after security in Calais was beefed up. On Thursday night, French authorities faced more than 1,000 attempts by migrants camped out in the port of Calais to reach the undersea tunnel. That number was already significantly down on the more than 2,000 daily attempts by migrants to breach the defences recorded earlier in the week. Ten migrants have died attempting to smuggle across the Channel to England since June. France this week sent 120 additional police officers to the northern port city to stem the crisis.
A spokesman for Eurotunnel, operator of the trains that link Britain and France through the tunnel, said there was “much less disruption” at its terminal near Calais since the reinforcements arrived to bolster a 300-strong existing police contingent.
On Friday, according to British news reports, Calais was a war zone:
FLAMES filled the air in Calais after striking French ferry workers blocked roads with burning tyres leaving the port now resembling a WARZONE. The protest has taken place after negotiations with the French government over job cuts broke down. Fires, which are currently blocking access to the harbour, have plunged the crisis zone into further chaos. It comes after Britain’s borders faced more disruption last night as hundreds of migrants including children stormed the Eurotunnel.
David Cameron has said Britain is threatened by a “swarm” of foreigners and the migrant crisis in Calais was likened to a “warzone.” Migrants were pictured clinging to a lorry as they left the port of Dover, while others in Calais were seen clambering over fences with children in tow. More than 4,000 increasingly aggressive and desperate migrants largely from war-torn failed African states have stormed through fences in a bid to clamber aboard trains to ‘El Dorado’ UK.
The “migrants” — the current euphemism for “invaders” — had vowed not to be intimidated by the arrival of more security police —
Migrants massed around the entrance to the Channel Tunnel said on Thursday they would keep trying to sneak across to Britain, undaunted by the arrival of 120 extra riot police on the French side. A police officer said the number of migrants trying to enter Britain eased slightly overnight compared to earlier in the week, with about 800 migrants around the site and some 300 intercepted by police. That compared to an estimated 1,500 attempts by migrants to enter the tunnel on Tuesday night and 2,000 on Monday. Some were probably repeat attempts by the same people.
Some 3,000 migrants live around the tunnel entrance in a makeshift camp known as “The Jungle”, making the northern French port one of the frontlines in Europe’s wider migrant crisis alongside Italian and Greek islands used an an entry point for those crossing the Mediterranean from Africa or the Middle East. Freight and passenger traffic through the rail tunnel have been severely disrupted in past weeks as migrants desperate to enter Britain have stepped up attempts to board trucks and trains traveling from France.
“All Europe, you know that the England is good. All, everybody knows that,” a 25-year-old Sudanese migrant who gave his name only as Mohammed told Reuters.
As Dan Hannan tweeted today: “Doublethink on the Left: Britain is uniquely harsh, racist etc, yet it’s perfectly understandable for migrants to prefer it to France/Italy.” It’s also perfectly understandable that members of an expansionist, eliminationist ummah should want to “emigrate.” What’s not understandable is why Christendom should let them.
