The Daily Express reports that the so called French crackdown on illegal immigration was exposed as a sham yesterday after the opening of a new camp for British-bound migrants.

The centre – next to the last motorway service station before Dunkirk and Calais – is equipped with beds, a kitchen, a lounge area and has washing facilities. It can support dozens of migrants seeking asylum in the UK. The tent city opened this week at Steenvoorde, a village near Lille, despite repeated pledges to halt the tide of illegal immigration.

Last month French Immigration Minister Eric Besson led the destruction of The Jungle, the migrant shanty town in Calais. But the new camp has the full backing of the local mayor who is a member of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s UMP party.

Tory immigration spokesman Damian Green said:

“Clearing The Jungle will have been a complete waste of time if this sort of thing continues.”

UKIP leader Nigel Farage said:

“Opening this site just yards from the last service station before the coast takes French cynicism to the extreme.”
