France calls for European aid after 27 migrant deaths at sea

Source: AP


CALAIS, France (AP) — President Emmanuel Macron appealed Thursday to neighboring European countries to do more to stop illegal migration into France after at least 27 people died trying to cross the English Channel.

Macron said that when migrants arrive on French shores with hopes of heading to Britain “it is already too late.”

Speaking a day after the deadliest migration tragedy to date on the dangerous sea lane that separates France and Britain, Macron said France is deploying army drones as part of stepped-up efforts to patrol the northern French coastline and help rescue migrants at sea.

But he also said that France is a “transit country” for migrants aiming for Britain and that a greater collective effort is needed.

1. North and South of the Sahara are 2 locations of fundamental issues

from the Mediterranean to equatorial west and central Africa as pertaining most closely to European migration. The Sahara itself is the biggest of all.

Migration from Syria, Iraq etc, goes thru Turkey , the Black Sea countries etc.

Egypt is a stabilizing country but obviously not enough.
