Hassam Hameed-TDO-20-01-2018- To speed up the process at Calais, a deal has been agreed between French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Which would require more financing by Britain for border security and enhanced commitment to 2003 ‘Le Touquet’ border agreement in Calais.
United Kingdom will pay extra $62 million for improved CCTV, fencing and other detection technology. May said, "The further investment we have agreed today will make the UK's borders even more secure". Difference of opinion over migration has long strained relations between the two countries, and this extra money comes on top of $138.7 million already paid by Britain.
In normal circumstances it would have taken 6 months from migrants to come to UK from Calais, but with this new agreement process would speeded up to a month for adults and twenty five days for childrens. Macron said "will enable us both to have a more humane approach to these people and to be more efficient".
