Transporter Gets Into BRAWL With Migrant After He Tried To Get A ‘Free’ Ride

In yet another illustration of why strong borders and immigration control are important, a truck driver who was set to cross the bridge at Calais from France to Britain, had to first fight a tenacious migrant who was attempting to stow away in one of the cars the driver was towing on his truck.

The driver noticed the man hiding under some clothing on the back seat of one of the vehicles on his trailer and went to evict him. The man fought him. When he finally dragged the sneaky would-be stowaway out of the car by his feet, the man spat at him. Nearby migrants then started pelting the driver and the vehicles he was towing, with rocks.

Calais is a magnet for illegal immigrants based on it being the gateway between France and England. It has been the location of huge migrant camps in the past. There are still many migrants there, sleeping in the woods or congregating in groups, potentially looking for a way to cross the border unnoticed.

Tory MP for Dover and Deal, Charlie Elphicke, called on French president Emmanuel Macron to get control of the situation. He said, “The shocking figures underline the importance of keeping the border between Dover and Calais strong, safe and secure. It matters to France every bit as much as Britain because a strong border means that Calais will not act as a magnet. Migrants would not go there if they knew they had no hope.”

Yes, MP Elphicke, this is the truth. A strong border means a strong and free nation. A weak border means a weak nation that is at the mercy of people who are looking to take advantage of it. A simple truck driver trying to accomplish a simple task of transporting vehicles is faced with having to physically fight with a migrant and gets attacked by other migrants for his trouble. This is what it looks like when border security isn’t taken seriously.
