The Calais refugee camp has been the site of Muslim violence and unrest. Last week, violence broke out between migrants and police at a makeshift camp, after three consecutive nights of unrest.
The makeshift camp dubbed the “jungle” has been the scene of growing unrest in recent weeks as thousands remain in wait for the opportunity to smuggle themselves across the Channel into Britain.
Muslim migrants were throwing objects and insults at officers before lighting a wooden pallet on fire. They set fire to the camp.
Back in October I reported this:
Infamous Refugee ‘Jungle Camp’ Swells Out of Control, France Begged to Bring in Army
They even have their own discos, bars and shops.
Now, officials in the U.K. and France along with Eurotunnel executives are practically begging French President Francois Hollande to send in the police, or preferably, the army, to disband the now infamous “Jungle Camp” which is overrun by 6,000 migrants.
Each and every night thousands of migrants hailing from the Middle East and Africa attempt to break into the Eurotunnel entrance and stow away on Eurostar trains. According to the Express, those who do not successfully break into the trains resort to “playing chicken with lorries so that they can smuggle themselves on board.”
UKIP MEP Mike Hookem said: “The Jungle exists as a camp for people who are planning to break the law by getting illegally into Britain – this wouldn’t be allowed for any other crime so why are we allowing it in Calais?
“The camps are dominated by criminal gangs and we know that Islamic State fighters have infiltrated the camps, ready to spread their hatred and violence in Britain.
“On top of that, crime in Calais and other northern towns has gone up, I know from experience that there are guns in these camps and the reports about the sexual abuse of women there is shocking.”
Delays are now commonplace on Eurostar trains traveling between France and Britain due to the upheaval.
The company has said the situation is becoming “unmanageable”.
Spokesman John Keefe said: “The answer is simple – don’t have a migrant camp near Calais.
“If it keeps going it is going to become unmanageable. The French just can’t cope.”
Clearly. And they admit as much, with French officials ceding that they “don’t know what comes next.”
The mayor of Calais, Natacha Bouchart, has demanded an army presence in her beleaguered town, according to the Express. To date, the efforts of roughly 750 police stationed in the town have ben futile as they are just simply outnumbered.
Ironically, the one solution proposed by the U.K., has been to erect a (presumably better) security fence. Apparently the ones built before are “routinely smashed down by large numbers of migrants.”
