Want to stop migrant deaths? Get tougher immigration rules

Another day and more fresh images of misery and desperation. In Calais, passengers on several London-bound Eurostar trains were stuck for hours in dark tunnels with no air conditioning or lighting because migrants had clambered on top of the carriages in a desperate attempt to get into Britain.
In Hungary, a Government official was forced to admit that their system has been broken by 3,000 supposed 'refugees' arriving in the country every day, seeking passage to wealthier countries, such as Germany. This has led to the closure of the main train station in Budapest and clashes between migrants and local police are increasingly common and increasingly violent.
In Greece, another 4,000 migrants landed on the mainland after securing a boat from the island of Lesbos.
