French mayor fails in bid to stop anti-migrant ‘Calais Wall’

Calais Mayor Natacha Bouchart, who pledged on September 23 to use “all legal weapons in my possession” to fight the controversial barrier, filed an injunction to halt work on the wall. The mayor argued, “Calais residents are fed up with seeing barriers and barbed wire everywhere. They feel completely hemmed in.” (France24)
