Time and again, we have said that once these migrants and refugees reach Calais, it is already too late. Anecdotal evidence suggests that migrants are usually in the town for an average of only three months, with 70% of the camps empty by the end of that time.

Fears of immigrants seem to be the biggest rhetoric trick played in the political landscape in UK. We are bombarded with messages about what to fear and how many to fear. It drives voters to the right, voting for what they don´t want, instead of they do want.

There seems to be such a void between politics, the media and everyday people. All I seem to read, watch and hear is immigrants and disabled people draining our society. Yet the recession, debt and issues we currently face began in financial sectors. Sectors that remain propped up by our government.

As a filmmaker 'Immigration Street' makes me sad because it glaringly captures on camera the fact that our media industry is an 'us and them' scenario. Why weren't any of the filmmakers immigrants? Why was every single crew member I saw white skinned?
