Construction of a new high-security fence to secure France’s migration zone in Calais begins today – thanks to the UK. More than two miles of fence will be built in an effort to stem the chaos caused by thousands of illegal migrants (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/06/23/calais-chaos-live-ferry-port-tunnel-closed-eurostar-trains-turn-back-to-london-migrant-warnings-from-foreign-office/) breaking into lorries for the trip across the English Channel.James Brokenshire, the Immigration Minister, told the Daily Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/11703636/Calais-migrants-Britain-to-build-huge-fence-at-Channel-Tunnel-port-in-France.html) he was taking immediate action after a surge in the number of “clandestines” storming the border in the Calais area last week.
The minister will also hold urgent talks this week with the European Commission and haulage firms in an effort to force foreign lorry companies to improve the security of their vehicles.
Speaking on Saturday, as the scale of the Tunisia beach massacre (http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/06/27/in-pictures-uk-on-terror-alert-after-day-of-vile-jihadist-terror-across-three-countries/) at Sousse became evident, he warned there was a risk that foreign jihadists could try to enter Britain among the thousands of illegal immigrants now living in camps around Calais.
Mr Brokenshire told the Telegraph: “I am very concerned to hear some of the stories of the impact of what we have seen on those who are trying to do their jobs and get produce and trade into the UK.
“It is extremely hard and extremely unsettling and I can only imagine the concern this causes to individual lorry drivers.”

order is breaking down rapidly in the world, this is probably too little too late.

One of Elizabeth I's unfulfilled dreams was for Britain to regain Calais. It figures that the French would pretty much surrender it back to them 400 years later, during her namesake's reign.

It was her sister Mary who said that when she died, they would find "Calais, engraved upon my heart."

The historical references are interesting, but I find their usage of the terms "illegal migrants" and "clandestines" at odds with the current Obama administrations usage of the term "immigrants", never using the more accurate "illegals".
