In Brussels, the spectre of a new Calais

http://bit.ly/2vAfQGc Google translation - Hundreds of migrants, most of them Sudanese and Eritreans hoping to go to UK, sleep every night in a park in Brussels, a phenomenon that has grown this summer, making fear a situation comparable to that of the former"Jungle" in Calais.
For the past month, an NGO collective has been sounding the alarm about the Maximilian Park camp, and calls on politicians to act "so that Brussels does not become a new Calais". But their request for the opening of a formal reception center, with care and legal advice, is deadlocked.
For Theo Francken, Secretary of State (Flemish nationalist right) in Asylum and Migration, there is no question of taking charge of "illegals" who "do not want asylum in Belgium ".
