France blew an annual €1.5 million ($1.7 million) on private jet rides for migrants at the Calais camp.
The Local reported:
France is spending an annual €1.5 million ($1.7 million) on a private jet that transfers only a handful refugees at a time from Calais to other parts of France, according to media reports.
A jet that can only seat 19 passengers is being used to thin the refugee population in Calais by transferring them to detention centres around France, according to the StreetPress investigative news site.
But the plane isn’t transferring 19 passengers at a time – not even close.
Due to the fact that each refugee must be accompanied by two police officers, the plane is actually only taking five refugees at a time from Calais to other towns in France like Metz, Toulouse, Nîmes, Hendaye, and Perpignan.
And it’s not cheap either. The private jet has been rented out to the French state on a four year renewable contract at a price of €1.5 million in total each year, the news site reported.
In France illegal invaders (euphemistically referred to as “refugees”) can also travel free on French trains.
Youth activists from the Generation Identitaire movement, protested this policy, peacefully, via a banner they unfolded on the roof of the Cannes railway station.
Each one of the French youths was fined 216 Euros for the protest.
