Uk France Migrant Agreement
The UK and France have signed a new deal to try to stop the undocumented movement of people across the Channel by establishing patrols and technology to close a dangerous route that refugees and migrants use in hopes of reaching the UK on small boats. In a speech to the Foreign Office on Saturday, Patel praised the «common intelligence» between the two nations and cited it as the reason «French authorities have prevented more than 5,000 migrants from entering the UK.» A group of people considered migrants will be emigrants by border guards following a small boat accident in the English Channel, Monday, October 19, in Dover, Kent, the agreement includes measures to help migrants stay in France, as well as measures to strengthen border security in ports in the north and west of the country. It builds on previously agreed measures, in which the share of intercepted crossings has increased from 41% in 2019 to 60% in recent weeks.
