    Those in the UK illegally don't come from France; you can only deport people back to their country of citizenship.

    Short answer: they are not French citizens, and France won't take them back. They must be deported to their own country, and getting travel docs (they do not need their actual passport) from their country is often difficult, and deportation is expensive.

    They claim asylum in UK to get "benefits" & live off UK taxpayers, and UK stupidly processes them even though they transited one or more "safe" countries & actually are not eligible for asylum. Asylum seekers must be fleeing "imminent danger" of persecution by their govt & apply at the nearest safe border. UK could refuse to allow anyone who has transited another safe country to asylum shop, eliminate any benefits unless the person has been adjudicated a legit refugee, and fewer would try to get to UK to begin with.

    US faces the same problems. Solution: NO applicants who transit another country - instant denial as ineligible; victims of crime are not eligible, only those proven to be persecuted by their govt for political/religious/etc activities; NO benefits for anyone not adjudicated by UNHCR as a legit refugee which has been accepted by the govt for resettlement with severe limits on amount & duration of benefits - place them in scutwork jobs if they can do even that sort of work.

    Some are, however there are a raft of issues, France ignores illegals especially those who want to go to the UK and have done for decades as in if they don't recognise them so they are not their responsibility...many of those illegals claim asylum once in the UK...and the UK obeys the international laws on asylum and many of those illegals fit the asylum laws and so can stay....... I personally agree with you, the UK states illegals will be 'sent back to France' if that is where they came from however legally you can't send someone back ( deport) unless the country you are sending them back to agrees they are citizens of that country and many of these illegals come from other countries like Iran....and the UK is unlikely to deport them back to a country like Iran where they will be killed and France doesn't legally accept them...... no country in the world can 'deport' unless they have got the passport of the person and that means getting a new copy of their passport and no country in the world legally has to accept any person of any other country.

    With the UK leaving the EU it makes it more diffiult as for decades British taxpayers have paid for security in France, British immigration officers are stationed on French soil, checking and removing all illegals from vehicles and because they are still on French soil they can stop them travelling, hand them over to French police, who remove them from the port area and release them ( to try again)...now with Brexit there will be nothing on French soil to stop them
