    Two questions why do some many children in the camp have relatives in the UK? Are the relatives illegal who be granted asylum? Or actual British citizens?

    Why don't the refugees in the camp claim asylum in France? When refugees enter the UK illegal why don't we send them back to France?

    They don't want to get asylum in France because the welfare system isn't as generous.

    Where do you get the idea that so many kids have relatives in the UK from?

    Those that do will likely be relatives of those who've gained asylum, rather than illegals, I imagine, aye

    Many do claim asylum in France but some would prefer to come to the UK (more inclusive society/has better prospects)

    A few thousand illegals do get deported each year, but there are about a million such aliens who may never be deported

    1. What do you mean by so many?? What is your source? Clearly some of them will have relatives and that would be a factor in going to the UK.

    2.They are a mixture. The common fact is they are related funny enough.

    3. Because they believe they will be treated better in the UK?

    4. Because if they claim asylum, then we have a system which investigates their claim to see if they are fleeing persecution in their home country. If they are then they are given refugee status and if not, then most will be deported. 30-40% are successful. There is specific probision in oru astlum agreements not to prosecute an asylum seeker for illegal entry becayse they wouldnt be able to make a claim otherwise.

    I imagine it's a great place to pick up chicks, maybe that's where the relation comes from?
