POP-UP PEOPLE SMUGGLERS
Ordinary people drive the vehicles: students, the unemployed, mothers, or poor French citizens lured by earning a few thousand euros. Smuggling an illegal immigrant into England is a serious crime that incurs a 5-year prison sentence and a 30,000 euro fine. It is a rapidly growing phenomenon : In 2015, over 300 cases were brought to the court of Boulogne-sur-Mer. The number of cases has doubled in the last two years.
