I am sick of the righteous amongst us saying we have to help these people ...after all we are all human beings. As true as that comment is..we are humans but with different values and most of those values don't mix. Birds are all birds at the end of the day...but they don't flock together otherwise they fight because they are different in needs and strengths.
We need to help these people be able to live in their own lands and not try to integrate them in ours..because it is very evident to me that this mass migration does not work.

Good decision ! I have been in France often too and seen Paris changing over the years ( i love the museums there ) and i have atm no desire to go there anymore either. France has always been one of the most visited places in World but has lost a lot of money from tourism since last terrorist attack. It is weird that government doesn´t do anything to save one of their main income nor help their own citizens. Picture is sour.

They will wait until people from western nations start to protest en mass, and then when there doesn't seem to be any solution the world elites will proclaim that "we can all be saved, but only if we work together in a global partnership, a global socialist regime."

The authorities are evidently being leaned on by a higher power. I can't think of another explanation for the inaction. Scary times.

Thank you for posting. Very disturbing. I have been sitting on a document that may explain some of this. Not posted because of the time involved.

This is being allowed because a majority of the people insist on it.
I don't think there is a conspiracy here (as in, the government must have pressure on it from some outside source to be allowing this). Sarcozy did not want to let this go on, and he became very unpopular. The french culture is still very left leaning, from an american point of view, anyway.
It is currently seen as politcally incorrect to speak about the immigrants. From what I can tell, there is the hope that with the effort to diffuse them to various parts of France, separate them a bit, give them all they need, they will settle down and integrate. The sheer numbers are daunting , so there is this weird anxious silence - don't complain, just keep up the effort... like trying to empty a sinking ship with a paper cup.
Last week, they placed many in my little town. One day, I went to the store and was surrounded by muslims and black africans. I guess the government took the two hotels here and used them to house the people. But I also see they are placed in many apartments in the village.
There are much more women and children than men, and probably more black people than middle eastern (contrary to the idea american media tends to send out). That may just be that they are choosing to house non-muslims, women and children first.
Rcently they decided to give these immigrants an apartment, plus 1000 euros a day to live, each. Considering the numbers of these people, I have no idea how we're supposed to handle that load (those of us who are working and paying for that).
Considering we already have a problem with unemployment as well...I wonder if these people will ever be able to get a job and support themselves.
But nobody is complaining about this, it is socially unacceptable and you'd be accused of being a nazi if you did.
Sometimes I wonder if the situation in Calais isn't also being allowed because they WANT these people to get over to England and be their problem instead.
