Councils Appeal For Financial Help For Child Migrants Dumped On Motorways Near Ports

Rob Stothard/Getty Images Migrant children dumped at the side of the road are causing a funding crisis for local councils financially responsible for the children until they turn 25. The Local Government Association has called on the government to cover the costs following a doubling in the number of children taken into care owing to the Calais crisis. Kent County Council has been particularly hard hit, as it is responsible for child migrants entering the country through the Channel Tunnel. Some of the older teenagers have been housed at a former old people’s home in Ashford, but the majority of children are being placed with foster carers, both through the council and private agencies, the Times has reported. Compass Fostering, one such private agency, has reported a 500 per cent increase in the number of asylum seeking children it has dealt with in the last three months, compared with the same period last year. It had

WATCH: Massive Syrian-Afghan Brawl In Refugee Camp

GERMANY-POLITICS-REFUGEES-ASYLUM-DEMO Eight people were injured yesterday and riot police intervened to quell the crowd after an argument between residents of a refugee camp in the eastern German city of Dresden threatened to become a full blown battle. EuropeOnline reports 14 police patrol cars and two lines of riot police ended the fight between about 50 Syrians and Afghans. “Men and women went at each other with whatever they could grab, from a fencing stake to a bedframe,” a Dresden police spokesman said [see video below]. It remains unclear why the fight escalated between the two groups but afterwards approximately 80 police officers remained to stand guard at the tent city preventing rival groups from reigniting their fight. The arrival of around 1,000 asylum seekers in the last week, mainly from North Africa, inflamed local anti-immigrant sentiment and set off violent protests in the city. Local police believe this culminated in the bombing of a car belonging to a local left-wing

Bomb Scare Disrupts Gay Pride – Army Detonates ‘Suspect Package’

Gay Pride A major annual gay pride event attracting 160,000 to Brighton on England’s Sussex coast had to be rerouted yesterday after the discovery of a “suspect package”. The start of the 25th annual Brighton and Hove Pride march was delayed as organisers and police worked to agree a diverted route avoiding the area in which explosives specialists later carried out a controlled explosion. The Mail on Sunday reports Sussex Police now say the incident is being treated as an ill-intentioned hoax. Chief Superintendent Nev Kemp said: “We believe the item was placed there deliberately and made to look like a suspicious device to disrupt the parade. We have started a criminal investigation. “We were concerned enough to call in the bomb disposal unit, who after making a further assessment, carried out a controlled explosion. The area had been cordoned off and there was no risk to the public.” The incident forced a last-minute route change on organisers of the Gay Pride parade causing a

Britain and France Appeal for Help with Migrant Crisis as Prime Minister Warns It will Last All Summer

Calais Migrants Attempt To Find A Way To Reach The UK The British and French governments have declared that the world is facing a “global migration crisis”. They have called countries from across Europe and Africa to assist in tackling the wave of migration currently washing across the continent. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that the mayhem in Calais is likely to last all summer. In a joint statement published by the British Telegraph newspaper and French Journal du Dimanche, the British Home Secretary Theresa May and her French counterpart Bernard Cazeneuve said that African migrants wrongly think the streets of Europe are paved with gold. “What we are currently facing is a global migration crisis,” they wrote. “This situation cannot be seen as an issue just for our two countries. It is a priority at both a European and international level. Many of those in Calais and attempting to cross the Channel have made their way there through Italy,

French Riot Police Disperse Migrants At Channel Tunnel

French riot police COQUELLES, France (AP) — French riot police have sprayed migrants with a chemical irritant as they tried to storm the Channel Tunnel, and the British and French interior ministers said the nightly attempts to reach Britain are part of a “global migration crisis” that needs an international solution. The migrants, who broke down several security fences late Saturday, were forced to retreat by riot police as they attempted to breach the final fence near the entrance of the 50-kilometer (30-mile) tunnel under the English Channel. The migrants, estimated to number around 200 by an Associated Press journalist, faced off for close to an hour with security forces, chanting slogans including: “Open the border” and “We are not animals.” Thousands of migrants have been scaling fences near the tunnel, often referred to as the Chunnel, in recent weeks, trying to hop on freight trains or trucks destined for Britain.

Overcrowded Asylum Centres See 2015 Increase In Threats And Violence

Sweden asylum To date in 2015 the  Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket) has recorded almost as many reports of threats and violence in asylum accommodation in Sweden as for all of 2014. Incidents reported are not limited to threats and violence against other people alone, but also to vandalism, arson and even attempted suicide. Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports so far this year, about 35,000 people applied for asylum in Sweden and a record number, 82,000 people are now enrolled with the Migration Board. The vast majority have fled the civil war in Syria but other countries featuring strongly in the immigration statistics are Somalia, Eritrea, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Iraq. This has led to overcrowding in immigration housing. In late July, 16,000 asylum seekers were registered in temporary holding places around Sweden. Intended to serve as a short-term solution, most residents have lived there more than half a year. Between four and ten people are forced to share rooms, often

Der Spiegel: Plans For Euro-Zone Tax Take Shape

AP Photo From Der Spiegel: After the Greek bailout disaster, Paris, Berlin and Brussels want to reform the euro zone by creating an economic government and a special tax for the currency area. German Finance Minister Schäuble is in favor, but Chancellor Merkel is skeptical. History has shown that when a government wants to solidify its power, it has to turn its subjects into taxpayers. The Roman Empire demanded high tribute payments from every tribe it had newly conquered. And the United States developed from a commonwealth to a federal state when, in the 18th century, Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton achieved uniform duties and taxes for the entire union, initially on whisky, because it was so lucrative. Politicians in the euro zone are now seeking to emulate the historic model from the early years of the United States. The unnerving bargaining over the latest Greece bailout program has led the leaders of
