France considers unacceptable Proposal by Boris Johnson to return immigrants that cross the channel of La Mancha

President Emmanuel Macron considers "unacceptable" the proposal of the "Premier" Boris Johnson to return French territory to immigrants who cross the Canal de la Mancha, after the tragedy that took 27 fatal victims this week, most Iranian and Iraqi Kurdish (Among them, a pregnant woman and three children).

The Galo Government has reacted fulminarly, to the point of canceling the invitation to the Secretary of Intere, Priti Patel, a mini-purpose and immigration minicamm on Sunday, in which representatives of the European Commission, France, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.

"That proposal is disappointing and making it public has worsened things even more," said French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin. "Therefore, I have decided to cancel our Sunday meeting in Calais."

In the letter directed to Macron, Johnson posed five actions in response to the migratory crisis on the canal. The "Premier" insisted on the "return" of immigrants who reach their costs, an issue that has already been rejected on several occasions by the French government to consider it would be a violation of international laws and human rights .

"That measure would reduce the journeys and could even stop them, because it would mean the rupture of the business model of the human trafficking bands," Johnson argued in his letter.

The "Premier" also proposed operations with "joint patrols", something that the French authorities are also opposed to consider it an intrusion into its sovereignty. Johnson also proposed the transfer of technology and aerial surveillance, as well as the collaboration of intelligence services to act against the "human traffic" mafias.

Tensions between Paris and London have gone to more in the last hours on behalf of the post-Brexit fishing conflict. Dozens of French fishermen, who claim more licenses to anchore in the caaderos of the Canal de la Mancha, have threatened to block Eurotunnel on Friday and access to the port of Calais.
