France isn't the first safe place that they come to, is it?
They will have been through 3 or 4 borders to get to France.
Why should France be the ones to control them.
BTW, France takes three times the asylum seekers that the UK does already
The Dublin Regulation is quite straightforward. Refugees/immigrants in Europe do not get to choose where in Europe they live. The State where they first enter Europe, most commonly Greece or Italy, is responsible for evaluating their right to asylum and remains responsible, even if they have left to go to another country. The individual should be returned to the country of entry. So, if someone gets into the UK, they should be evaluated and returned to Greece or Italy to have their right to asylum decided upon. This means that the must reside in that country.
In practice, this results in Italy and Greece being penalised, both socially and financially, so if any individuals want to leave , the governments are likely to turn a blind eye.
This is how they subsequently arrive in all of the countries that were not their point of entry.
BTW, contrary to what the Express believes, it is only a small minority which wish to enter the UK, usually because they speak English or they have family or friends in the UK
So, the answer is clear. Sort them out in a camp in Folkestone and send them back to their point of entry, which will not be France.
