Frankrig: Migrantkrisen er nu helt ude af kontrol
French Interior Minister Gérard Collomb described the level of violence in Calais as "unprecedented." He attributed the fighting to an escalating turf war between Afghan and Kurdish gangs seeking to gain control over human trafficking between Calais and Britain, which many migrants view as "El Dorado" because of its massive underground economy.
During his visit to Calais, Macron outlined his government's new immigration policy: food and shelter for those entitled to remain in France, and deportation of those in the country illegally.
"Emmanuel Macron did it. Never before has a president of the Republic fallen into unpopularity so fast and then become popular again." — Paris Match.
