    Default This is how "egalitarian" & "fraternal" France deals with illegal migrants!

    The huddled men in their dirty hooded tops and jackets make a solid block of drab misery. Even the seagulls are granite, grey and greasy.

    A young Afghan man is begging the elderly woman handing out small plastic pots of pasta, for more. There is not enough, she tells him firmly, shaking her head.
    Anwar lifts one of the tarpaulins and shows me a filthy mattress littered with damp blankets, odd shoes and some mouldy bread. It smells as acrid and rotten as a sick room and I have to withdraw my head quickly.

    "Seven of us sleep here. But in the night the police come," he says. "They spray everything with gas so we can never use it again and then we have no cover from the rain and no more clothes.
    And they give out about Greece....??!

    Hopefully the message gets home that they are not required or wanted.

    If this was happening in Ireland, it would be the talk of the country.

    The French treat their cattle far better.

    If they don't want them there, why not pick them up off the streets and hold them in custody before sending them home?

    Christian ethics are partly responsible for the death of an immigrant in Ireland. What's your point?

    It is not correct to say France does not care for migrants. The issue is they insist on gathering at this particular place in order to try to illegally gain entry to Britain. There are plenty of places in France where these people would be looked after by NGOs.
    I do understand why they are doing it given from where they have come but they are insisting on continually trying to brake the law and I would say the French authorities are showing a large degree of leniency.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
