    The Calais wall.

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 07 Sep 2016, 11:13 am

    Is France following Donald Trump's example of "wall building" in order to keep out immigrants ?

    Hauliers Slam Calais Wall To Stop Migrants As A 'Poor Use Of Taxpayer Money'

    Work on the 13ft high barrier could start as early as this month and comes after a surge in migrant incursions around the port.

    It is expected to cost £1.9m and is being built as part of a £17m package of measures.

    Get the full news story from Sky News HERE




    Trump has promised to build a wall right along the Mexican border with America, but is wall-building a way to ensure that immigrants are denied entry ?

    Will the French wall be any better than Trumps wall, or are they still just going to dig tunnels under it ?

    Hi all,

    Calais Wall ????

    Don't know. We need to defend our own borders as follows:

    Searching of all cars, or scanning of all cars automatically and lorries ( increse staffing at Dover)
    Same for the tunnel. This is not done to everyone. It needs to be.

    ZERO tollerance of illegal immigrants.( back on the next boat ) All need correct paperwork/documentation and valid reasons for being here.

    Clear surveilance of all craft in the channel, in particular small private craft who must display correect identification and be equipt with communiion identifiers ( as in aircraft) with a requirement to contact coastal authorites within 2 miles of the coast.

    A no sail zone ( unless aurthorised to proceede ). The eatablishment of machine gun posts from Margate to Hastings every half mile with clear notice that deadly force will be used if the zone is infiltrated without permission ( works in area 51, why not here ?. Radical yes, but would you cross it ??)

    That's for starters, then there is the rest of our coastline !!

    Yes, even as a bit of a lightweight, I can see those border controls and policing the wet bit as reasonable.

    Once the law has been sorted out after brexit, I see no reason why we cannot enforce the law without being too draconian.

    This little island DOES need some firm border controls and we don't need to build a wall as we DO have the wet bit as our border.

    And, Trump's expensive wall is going to be a big white elephant as Mexican immigrants are either going to get under it via tunnels or round it by boat.

    Of course the whole idea by Trump is to keep trying to look strong and decisive up and until he has the presidency. God forbid.

    Big walls just don't work. Just look at the history of wall-building; eventually, they all come down again.

    Yes Angie, you are right about that.

    Building walls or erecting "iron curtains" have always been found to be counter-productive to the point of having them.
