A memorial was held tonight in the French port of Calais after 27 migrants drowned trying to cross those 34 kilometres of icy water to England. You’ll hear grandstanding between Johnson and Macron, but the two sides have cooperated for years over this border. Both sides blame smugglers, but why the recent spike in crossings? And how to protect the human rights of those who risk their lives without opening the floodgates to uncontrolled migration?
