France is seeking a new treaty as well as 63 million euros, promised by the British to strengthen border controls. It is a treaty that aims to settle the migration issue at the European level.

On Friday, October 8, on a beach in Pas-de-Calais in broad daylight, about forty Kurdish expatriates will attempt to cross the Channel, towards Great Britain. But too many of them are for inflatable boat, and some have to float back. The scene takes place under the sight of a French Navy helicopter and about forty police officers who do not intervene.

Like the British officers, the journalist wonders about the behavior of the French police. London is angered by the increase in crossings (at least 17,000) since the start of the year. There have been over a thousand since Friday, October 8th. France is defending itself against any laxity, and Gerald Darmanin accused the British of not paying 63 million euros promised to strengthen French police investigations on the coasts.
