The UK has announced that construction will begin soon on a “big new wall” in the French port city of Calais to prevent refugees and migrants from entering Britain.
The 13 foot high wall is part of a $23 million deal struck between Britain and France earlier this year to try to block migrants from crossing the English Channel. It is the latest attempt to enhance border security in Calais, home to a controversial makeshift camp known as “The Jungle,” where thousands of displaced people live in squalid conditions.The camp is notorious for being a major transit point for migrants, who often hop onto the back of UK-bound cargo trucks in the hopes of entering the country illegally. Many in “The Jungle” are reluctant to register as refugees in France because their preferred destination is Britain.
