French politicians, politicians lash out at Macron over migrant crisis

Others attacked Emmanuel Macron's administration, claiming that politics relating to the EU and the EU may have led to the human tragedy. It sparked calls for immediate action to deal with the issue. Around 47,000 people have tried to make the dangerous journey this year alone. Daniel Fasquelle, Mayor of Touquet-Paris Plage, said this tragedy is a reflection of the failure of the Government's policy of forcibly detaining migrants in France who are seeking asylum in Great Britain. It is not for lack of having alerted the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister on several occasions about the risks these migrants were desperate to reach Great Britain were taking.

The situation has continued to worsen, while the French government's only response has been to ask more money from the British to prevent the migrants from passing through Calais. I ask that the French government should immediately open negotiations with the British authorities with only one point on the agenda: the British must finally accept to welcome the asylum seekers to investigate their asylum application on their soil. This absurd and inhumane situation must end as soon as possible. The socialist politician Jean-Luc M lenchon said shame was on those who made this possible and first of all on the smugglers. He called for open access to the UK to stop more migrants dying.
