Due to news of there being migrants at a railway station, we waited on a train for three hours before it was able to cross Calais. We arrived from France to London after midnight. Such chaos obstructing railway activity was not a first as the waves of migrants who sneaked into Europe have become the European Union’s major security, economic and legal challenges. The bloc is holding meetings to finalize laws to resolve the problem and there's talk of forming a naval power in the Mediterranean sea to control navigation and prevent illegal migration - a step that will require international approvals.
Despite complaints, the number of migrants arriving in Europe is still reasonable - it's possible that they can be accommodated on the continent. There are 200,000 illegal migrants so far, however, European governments fear are the numbers that follow. It is possible that millions fleeing Africa and Asia will be willing to swim to Europe. If this happens, the situation may become out of control, placing Europe in a semi-state of war. Perhaps one Spanish official exaggerated this point when he warned that Europeans will become a minority in their own countries due to a migrant "invasion."
The question is: Why has the migrant flow into Europe suddenly surged now? What has opened up the perilous sea routes for them?
