This year the numbers have risen. What are the reasons behind this process? The proplem of people smugglers is also present in the region: Are Britain and France doing as much as possible to put the cross-Channel people smugglers out of business? Last year Boris Johnson told illegal immigrants 'we'll send you back'. Is pushing illegal immigrants back possible?

In the latest episode of the Danube Dialogues our guest was Alp Mehmet, chairman of Migration Watch, UK. Mr. Mehmet discussed the above mentioned questions and topics with Mark Higgie, Senior Fellow at the Danube Institute and Melissa O'Sullivan, the Danube Institute's Deputy-Director.
